WASHINGTON (AP) Select members of Congress are making appointments at CIA headquarters to view graphic photos of Osama bin Laden's corpse. But the American people might have to wait decades to see images of the al-Qaida leader who was killed in Pakistan by Navy SEALs during a daring middle-of-the-night raid. Advertisement
The CIA is allowing members of the House and Senate Intelligence and Armed Services committees to see the photos in a secure room at the agency's headquarters in Langley, Va., a CIA spokesman said Wednesday. Lawmakers cannot take copies of the photos with them.
Sen. James Inhofe, a Senate Armed Services Committee member, said he saw photos of bin Laden's body Wednesday at the CIA, making him the first member of Congress to take advantage of the spy agency's offer. Inhofe said he spent nearly an hour looking over more than a dozen photos of Osama's body. The photos were taken at the scene and on board the U.S. Navy ship that buried bin Laden's body at sea.

I would be a bit more encouraged if Jim Demint also views them and gives his opinion...OR Michele Bachmann.
Our media told us that OBL death photos were being passed around the Capitol last week like trading cards. Scott Brown was one who was fooled, if memory serves.
Are these people so insulated that they don’t even know obvious fakes when they see them?
Saw him on Fox News... he said they should be released to the public
That’s interesting. Why would either of those be preferable to Sen. Inhofe?
I am confused here ,Who paid for that operation and the damn pictures,Obama?? the CIA?? or the American taxpayer and don’t give me those phony poll numbers and say out troops are in danger! Release the Pictures they are not yours!
When is the viewing for the commie usurper’s kenyan birth certificate?
Yup. He’s a smart man.
Actually, they are just a personal preferance. After watching each, fighting for us, for this country, my trust has grown. That’s not to diminish Inhofe but personally, I would feel more confident if Demint or Bachmann viewed these photos and then communicate with ‘us’.
Perhaps. But what if the fakes that they passed around weren't "obvious". Some Photoshop fakes are pretty good.
I will not be satisfied untill I see ALL the photos myself.
Brain matter was hanging out of the eye socket, Inhofe said. "It wasn't a very pretty picture," he said.
OK, he saw pictures of an ugly dead bloody Mohammedan. His impressions might have been more valuable if he knew what he was looking at. Is there not one single member of Congress who is a pathologist?
A guest on “Coast to Coast” hosted by George Nory, told George last night that Osama Bin Laden was dead 10 years ago.
He further charged that this is nothing but a set up . . .
One of the photos was of bin Laden’s head and showed what appeared to be the fatal wound, according to Inhofe, “Either a bullet, the significant bullet, went through the ear and out the eye socket, or vice versa,” Inhofe said in an interview.

Yeah. Hiding the death photos in a vault for decades really nipped those JFK assassination theorists in the bud, didn’t it?
Even if they stuff them in their socks?
If Al-Qaeda declares him dead - that is good enough for me.
I call BS on the whole episode. bin laden has been dead since 2002 and this whole stunt is a political campaign maneuver for the imposter. Shame on the supposed right wing media for campaigning for an illegal alien by praising this stunt without any verifiable evidence.
I’m with you. I want to see at least one identifiable photo of the guy. A little brain matter is not going to rock my world.
