They’re going to save them until they need a distraction in the news.

WHITE HOUSE: WE AREN'T RELEASING A BIN LADEN PHOTO

Though, like the second birth certificate, we will later release a fake Osama photo.

Panetta seems to be running this show

I'm beginning to think the feather really belongs in his cap and he's got 2012 aspirations.

There is nothing so gruesome that narcissist kid in the WH could post that I couldn’t take.

So we can use this as our tag line ?

“Obama Lied, No one died.”

Seems fair to me after the way Bush was treated.

Remember: This is the guy who still hasn't shown his real long form birth certificate. Why are you surprised? I wonder if that was even OBL? I would put nothing past the Democrats at this point. I'm not saying the SEALS or whomever did the job were mistaken, I just know what this crew is capable of. This is the Chicago crowd and they are world-famous for their corruption and shenanigans.

“Like everything else this administration is involved in, this whole thing smells fishy.”

Osama smells fishy right about now.

Dump the body in the ocean, no photos ... it’s like they WANT there to be some conspiracy theory over this. Why the secrecy?
I’m not doubting it myself, see tagline - doubting OBL’s death is not ‘healthy skepticism’ it’s nutty.

I agree it’s a stupid reason...

It’s the viability of the source that reiterates my point.

According to Greta they are passing the picture around the Senate

We are now learning that various Senators have seen the dead Bin Laden picture while the President debates whether to release it to the public or not. It almost sounds like they are passing it around in the Senate lunchroom!

Someone will leak them

Muslim respect for the sensitivities of Western culture:

American bodies burned and hung from Fallujah bridge.

No washing, no Christian burial, no angry liberal Democrats.

I don’t need to see them, I have imagined him with his brains splattered about for years.

But yes, I’m sure the pics will mysteriously surface closer to the election when this is long forgotten.

This regime could mess up a wet dream.

They keep changing their story, no photographs, video, something stinks.

And no, I'm not a "deather." I believe Osama has reached room temperature. The only questions now are when, and where.

So, we have MUCH MORE proof that we landed on the moon, than there is that they actually KILLED Osama.........by far!

It won't prove a thing to release to the public the graphic details which could of course be faked just like the moon landings ;)

Several choices:

1. Release the photo with the statement that this is what happens to enemies of the US of A - leading with strength.

2. Announce from the beginning that no photos would be released because they are gruesome and/or out of respect for the deceased, his family, and his religion - a cop out, but still leading.

3. Announce that a photo would be released to prove that OBL is dead, then announce that no photo would be released (with no explanation) - weak-kneed capitulation (what you would expect from a community organizer).

indeed and you are correct but there was one guy Billy the Kid where never saw the body and some people think he was alive.

If we want closure then show the damn photo instead of pussy footing around by these fairies and that idiotic respectful funeral service ordered by fairy in chief was one of the most disgusting things I have heard from modern Presidents

Shows how much power Panetta has in this Keystone Cops Administration.

Hillary tells Zero “no pictures” and Zero follows her orders, lest she run against him next year.

“Panetta seems to be running this show

Possible, or perhaps since he is a card-carrying member of Team Clinton, he could be making moves to prepare the way for her to take Obama out come election time. You can never count the Clintons out.

Or maybe he is one of the few that actually has common sense and fully understands the larger picture here. The only grownup, so to speak.

Not hard to predict, given the regime`s repeated comments about how “inflammatory” the pics (assuming they exist) are. The were preparing us children for the eventual “no.”

The only thing Obama has control over is his dink in his hand.

Assuming there were a dozen or so individual contributors involved in this operation, it is likely photographs of more than anyone needs to see and such consequences will be available to the highest bidder about 5 minutes after an honorable discharge.

Yes, we can’t release this because America has never seen anything this gory before (except for all the violent video games, youtube sniper killshots and realistic horror movies) and because we might upset the Arab street (that is currently going up in flames)...

pRes_ _ent Obama ordered that OBL's body must be "washed", "wrapped in linen", and shown respect? Heck, some type of "40 minute" Navy ceremony was reportedly given. Why? For what reason?

0bama wanted to give Osama as much respect as JFK Jr. got. It's to show how color-blind and democratic he is. Or sumptin.

Obama, you piece of garbage.

But you and your ilk thought it was perfectly OK to release photos from Abu Ghraib.

I wish I could spit in your face.

The White House had been weighing the release of a photo, in part to offer proof that bin Laden was killed during a raid on his compound early Monday. However, officials had cautioned that the photo was gruesome and could be inflammatory.

We can watch the gruesome videos of 9/11 every year, but we can't see a gruesome picture of the man that committed these acts?
