    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".

    :mad:

    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?
