Have you noticed they’ve let out tidbits of info nearly everyday since the operation?
The only fly in the ointment would be a revenge attack by AQ against the US that would point to security weaknesses in defending the Homeland. That is something I don't want regardless what the political fallout might be.
Goes hand-in-hand with not releasing photos. They want to craft the news over time, and releasing the photos a few days ago would be blowing their wad too much at once. When they said they would not release photos - too gruesome - they had and have all the while full intention of releasing them. All in due time. They may be "released" or they may be leaked, they will decide what's best [for the campaign]. Choreography at its worst.
