In an interview with Steve Kroft for this Sunday's 60 Minutes, President Obama says he won't release post-mortem images of Osama Bin Laden taken to prove his death.

Video of the comments will appear on the CBS "Evening News" on Wednesday.

Republican House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers said Wednesday that the Obama administration should not release the gruesome postmortem images, saying it could complicate the job for American troops overseas.

"The risks of release outweigh the benefits," he said. "Conspiracy theorists around the world will just claim the photos are doctored anyway, and there is a real risk that releasing the photos will only serve to inflame public opinion in the Middle East."

"Imagine how the American people would react if Al Qaida killed one of our troops or military leaders, and put photos of the body on the internet," he continued. "Osama bin Laden is not a trophy - he is dead and let's now focus on continuing the fight until Al Qaida has been eliminated."

Skeptics have called on the United States to release photos of bin Laden, who officials say was shot in the face during a raid on his compound, in order to prove that the al Qaeda leader is really dead.

The White House has said it was debating whether to release the photographs, which are believed to be extremely graphic. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Tuesday that the photos could inflame anti-American sentiment.

So let me get this straight...the photos of two dead American contractors...burned and hanging from a bridge in Fallujah can be published world wide without worrying about "sensitivities"and someone gets a Pulitzer prize for it but the photos of a dead terrorist can't be shown? What the fuck is wrong here?

They are already having a grand old time. Talk a look at the headlines on Drudge.


I just don't get it.

Photos can be shown of a dead soldier being dragged by the foot through the streets of Mogadishu with people CHEERING...but dead Osama is off limits?

A fucking American soldier...one dirtbag out of 500K soldiers holding up a dead Afghan kid like a war trophiy...hell those photos can get printed even though they are supposed to be secured as evidence in a Courts Martial the Federal Government doesn't even ACT like they are upset they got out!

But God forbid anything even dare threaten to enflame those precious "Muslim sensitivities".

So, we'd go crazy if a member of the military was photographed after death but the video of the actual beheading of an American contractor just wasn't important enough to make us burn down American mosques, is that it? :confused:

It's already happened. The infamous photo of Medal of Honor recipient Randy Shugart being dragged through the streets of Mogadishu!!! Hell it was on tv too!

I didn't see mass killings of Somali's in America when THAT happened.

You know, if we are going to be so damned scared of them that we can't even show a photograph, what's the point of even fighting terrorists? After all, that might piss them off too. :rolleyes:

Seems like a pretty dumb move on his part. The "deathers" now have ammo and the glory he was basking in is now overshadowed by his wussiness once again.

What can be shown and not worry about American sensitivities...
Muslims beheading Americans.
Muslims burning American flags or effigies of Americans.
Muslims burning actual Americans.
Muslims dragging dead soldiers through their shit hole country's streets.
Muslims cheering 3,000 people dying and the collapse of the Towers.

No kidding. That the WH would even make a statement like that is simply infuriating. It makes it seem as though we think like Muslims think. When was the last time you poured into the streets with all your co-religionists and overturned cars, burned buildings, killed Muslims, and attacked cartoonists (in between honor killings and acid attacks on unmarried women, I mean)?

Why is it ok for a President to lift the ban on photos being taken of dead soldiers returning to the U.S. via Dover AFB but a pic of a dead terrorist can't be released?

Exactly my sentiment....I suppose that little bump just became a pot hole. Good going Obama!!


The photos will leak out anyway, and Obama will receive no credit for it.

Releasing prisoner abuse photos a-ok with Obama.
Allowing the showing of the American flag being burned a-ok with Obama.
Showing flag draped coffins returning from the wars is a-ok with Obama
Showing photos of the most wanted terrorist in history is not a-ok with Obama.

The disdain this man has for this country couldn't be more obvious if he put it on a flag and hung it over the White House.

I don't generally approve of graffiti, vandalism, murals, and that sort of thing- but I would be amused if some civic minded group were to plaster Dearborn and Manhattan mosques with pictures of deadLaden.

You ever see the movie Gran Torino? In it, there is a scene where the lead female character and her date, a white douchebag, are hassled by some black thugs. The white kid tries to ameliorate the confrontation by imitating the cultural patois of those thugs. When the Eastwood character confronts the thugs, he admonishes the white kid by telling him the thugs aren't his friend or his brother (something to that effect) and do not like him.

You remind of that white kid when you are here.

I love parables. However, I have no illusions about the folks to whom you refer, it's simply that if I wanted to hang out in a chat room of nice people schmoozing each other, I would go to Livejournal.
