I think the photo of a slain Osama bin Laden needs to be presented to the world. For me, I trust the words of President Obama, and need not see it to know what happened. I also think there is some justification not to post the photo so as not to roil fanatics around the world. But given the sceptical nature of so many people there would be no end to the conspiracy theories that would hound us for years absent a photo. In addition regardless of the photo being presented to the media the fanatics will still try and seek revenge.
U.S. Sens. Joe Lieberman and Susan Collins said Monday photos of Osama bin Laden’s body should be released to resolve any doubts about his death.
Lieberman, Ind-Conn., and Collins, R-Maine, said they would defer to President Barack Obama’s judgment on whether to release the photos, but said they would prefer the photos or some other evidence be released, Politico reported.
Both are senior members of the Senate Homeland Security Committee.
