Obama will say those were American contractors and pull a Clintonspeak.

I do not want to hear this headline now for days and days and his fricking ground zero photo op is ONLY for his poll numbers to spike up a few points. Obama is such a radical SOB partisan hack that appeases muslims and gives OBL a funeral.

As I type this the press is asking Carney DUMB questions.
I wish one of them would ask how the President could order our military to honor a terrorist with a religious funeral?

Obama needs impeached he is an idiot usurper.

Yes my stinkometer is registering fresh BS. This thing has gone from strange to downright bizarre. They keep changing the story every 15 minutes. Its surreal! I’m starting to think maybe Alex Jones is right that they had OBL in a freezer for 9 years and they thawed him out now and staged the whole thing. Even Rush just said he believes OBL is dead he just isn’t sure he died Sunday night. I’m with Rush. They had no problem releasing photos of So Damn Insane and his 2 psycho sons. I’m calling The Donald. LOL!

No..I said I don’t need a picture..I think others do..and they could surely present ONE!

I listened to the talking heads on all channels..some libs think he should release...some more conservative speakers said no..and vice versa..I think it should be released to Al Jazeera to show what can happen to you if you do evil to America..

I just don’t need to see a picture...I am just happy the monster is DEAD.

Thank you to our intelligence community, our brave Navy Seals and other military
and those who urged Zero to finally act on this!

It was apprx 40 min Op once on the ground, in its entirety. The firefights themselves were within that 40 minutes, and were likely very short moments of that... Still this is an odd decision by the WH. Bad decision that will likely be reversed within a week.

It's into Nixonian Watergate type cover up lying now. They are clearly hiding some critical matters from the American people and telling us, in so many words, to just take a chill pill and zip it. Well, NO, I'm sorry.

Somebody should be impeached. There should be Congressional hearings on the whole operation, by the MAJORITY REPUBLICAN CONGRESS Oversight Mechanisms. HELLOOOO???

Great example!

Go back 20+ years from that: What about the pictures (and news reels) of the decomposing corpses of Mussolini and his mistress Clara Petacci strung up from a gas station in Milan? Those are damn gruesome.

Hell, they scared Hitler into committing suicide, so they had an effect as well.

How true! Fortunately it was not up to him, Navy SEALs took care of that.

In 2003, al Jazeera published footage and photographs of American servicemen captured and killed in Iraq. Those images are still in the internet. I’m not going to post them. Their faces are identifiable.

It's the same thing that was released way back when...it's the COLB. It's not the Long Form.

That all said....I personally think it's a moot point now. The water is so muddy now...it won't ever clear.

I suggest a massive chain letter writing campaign by the mothers, fathers, sons, husbands, wives of servicepeople killed in Afghanistan GOING AFTER OSAMA, directly to the President, and copied to the local media, stating that in remembrance of "my son' (or daughter's) sacrifice, I sir would in fact like to see those photos to bring this to closure for me." BHO wants to politicize this thing? It goes both ways, and many, many American families can be turned on him. I say, light a national prairie fire under his ass. From sea to shining sea.

It’s not because the pics won’t be released, and the Arab world will have no proof that he’s finally dead, it’s because you hate the President because he’s BLACK, right?

This is how he keeps the story alive until closer to the election, then he releases the photo to make naysayers look like fools.

When we got Queasy and Greasy, we were told that it is Muslim culture to show the bodies of dead potentates to prove that they are dead.

It's a common thing with them. No sensitivity issues.

This is further proof that Ubama can screw up a free lunch.

Let me be the first to say: The pictures WILL be seen by the world. They’ve been shown to members of Congress, and there isn’t a leakier cesspool in the world.

And if he was dumped from a ship, something will get out. There are no secrets on ships.

So we can see photos of Mussolini hanging upside down, and Saddam being hanged.

But this is just too much?!?

No, but the picture of Saddam in his underpants WAS too much.

Fox News just said Obama thought the pictures were too “gruesome.”

What is gruesome for American is that he is still in OUR Oval Office!

The pictures would only be gruesome to his muzzie brother and he doesn't want to offend them. He could give a flip about Americans - this is another middle(east) finger to us.

If he makes that statement on 60 minutes, they should show pictures of various atrocities committed by the Islamo-facist in the background as he’s making that statement.

Well, why didn’t you say so? I have it on good (snicker) authority that bin Laden is alive and well. You think he was hard to find in the middle of the Paki army? Just wait until they start looking for him in his new 5-story condo inside the DC beltway——just across the river from the Pentagon?-——I gotta quit-—I think I just hurt my funny bone.

This press conference has convinced me that Obama did not spearhead this takedown of OBL. Panetta went around him or dragged him along by threatening to leak that he missed the opportunity. Obama’s crew is mainly concerned with pandering to Islam & trying to illustrate to us what a leader Obama is. And politicizing this by going to Ground Zero to meet with a vetted pro-Obama audience.

These photos will leak.

Zero turned them down. It was Panetta who gave the go signal. 0bama had to be summoned from the golf course. Why do you think he was in the back of the room in a corner wearing golf attire and looking pissed?

Evidently the worst quote was improperly sourced to Obama, when it fact it came from GOP Rep Hal Rogers, who heads the House Intelligence Committee.

Rogers had best walk back that comment within 24 hours, or they’ll be finding a new committee chair, because his facts are horrible and the moral equivance is worse.

That said, Obama’s quotes about spiking the football and other asinine things Carney has said all day are going to ruin whatever minimal bounce this Empty Suit was ever going to get.

An earlier poster got it right: Obama could screw up a one-car funeral.

I was thinking there is NO WAY Obama would have gone to Ground Zero without making sure he’s going to get a huge welcome.

Lately even he and his handlers would know he’s likely to get boo’ed all the way.
