Obama Decides Not To Release Bin Laden Photos

President Obama has decided not to release pictures depicting the body of Osama bin Laden.

The decision comes a day after CIA director Leon Panetta said that a photo proving the death of Osama bin Laden “would be presented to the public,” but the comment quickly drew a response from the White House saying no decision has yet been made.

“The bottom line is that, you know, we got bin Laden and I think we have to reveal to the rest of the world the fact that we were able to get him and kill him,” Panetta said in an interview with Nightly News…

U.S. officials say the still-secret photographic evidence shows a precision kill shot above his left eye, which blew away part of his skull. He was also shot in the chest, they said.

The White House said the photograph of a dead Osama bin Laden is “gruesome” and that “it could be inflammatory” if released.
