White House opts against releasing bin Laden death photo, Obama preps for Ground Zero

WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama says releasing photos of Osama bin Laden's body could pose a national security risk to the United States.
White House spokesman Jay Carney says Obama has seen the photographs U.S. forces took of bin Laden after they shot and killed the al-Qaida leader. Administration officials discussed whether to release the images, but the president ultimately decided he did not want to make available graphic photos that could become a propaganda tool.
Carney says the president believes the DNA and facial analysis proves the man U.S. forces shot was bin Laden, and the photos are not needed as further proof. Obama made his comments in a CBS News interview.

I'm starting to feel they should have taken him alive.

Looks like most everybody got a couple to the head. It pays to be sure.

Burned helicopter separated from the tail rotor might indicate that pilot hit the wall hard on the way in. Dark, NVGs, not good but not unexpected.

Fake out: Senators confused over bin Laden photos link

I wonder if the photo that was shown around was the one on the right seen here:



Maybe it's the same one the Whitehouse was going to release.
