Obama Refuses to Release bin Laden Photo

By Bobby Eberle

The debate is on, and Barack Obama has jumped right into it. Although Americans have welcomed the news of Osama bin Laden's demise, there are still many who are looking for more closure. It's one thing to say, "We got him," and it's another to see the proof. Many Americans want to see the photo of bin Laden's body. However, the Obama administration has just announced that it will not release the photo. What do you think?

According to the Associated Press story on GOPUSA, because the "gruesome" image could be "inflammatory," Obama will not be releasing the photo. This will only add to the debate and certainly to the outrage that many Americans will feel since there has been no proof provided at all to confirm bin Laden's death.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the White House's grappling with whether to release a gruesome photograph of Osama bin Laden, weighing the benefit of proving his death with the possibility the image could kindle an anti-American backlash." Fox News has a story online which describes the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee as "expressing concern that there's too much risk and too little benefit attached to releasing a photo of Usama bin Laden's body."

Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., chairman of the intelligence committee, put out a statement opposing the release Wednesday morning. He told Fox News he's using a simple test -- if the release of the photo would make a village elder in Afghanistan less cooperative and less likely to snitch to U.S. troops about potential attacks, then he's against it.

Rogers argued that conspiracy theorists will never be satisfied anyway, telling Fox News that releasing the picture could make things more difficult for soldiers in the field without dispelling the bin Laden myths.

According to Fox News sources, the photo of bin Laden "shows a large, open gunshot wound on bin Laden's forehead, revealing brain matter." Fox News adds that "a senior U.S. official who has had access to the images said one of bin Laden's eyes is open while the other is 'completely gone.'"

Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., who has seen a photo and confirmed that it shows bin Laden, disputed the notion the image is too gruesome for the public to see.

"Nobody wants to see a disturbing photograph, but for closure purposes, it should be released," she told Fox News. "We don't want to see conspiracy theories develop, particularly among the terrorists."

Should the photograph have been released? Do you think there would be repercussions? Could they be any worse than what the terrorists are already planning? I personally feel that this national trauma deserves some sort of closure. Our fight against radical Islamic terrorism goes on, but our fight against bin Laden is done. Let's close that chapter once and for all.

--------

Let us know what you think. Do you agree with Obama's decision?

     The graphic images “would feed anti-U.S. sentiment”  ? ? ? Will terrorists be any less militant if we don’t release the pictures? I think not. 
     
    Releasing the photo is not to satisfy any conspiracy theorists . . . . Bin Laden was a mass-murderer . . . Releasing the photos will send the message that he has been brought to justice . . .Releasing the photos will send the message that the United States has commitment and patience but will not tolerate terrorists or terrorist organizations.

      Let me get this straight. They the Muslims can put a video out Daniel Pearl getting his head cut and we have to accept that. A picture of dead Obama is off limits. You already have members of the Taliban saying that this is just a fake story because of the upcoming election. Like others said before, they showed Saddam’s death picture. Why not Osama’s.
      We have already angered the Muslims by killing Osama. I can’t see this picture making things any worse. If the shoe were on the other foot not only would see the pictures of a dead American, we would see the body being dragged thru the streets by the Muslims. I agree with ddrinsp it would send a message.

      I agree with Wild Man. The photo should be released and as soon as possible. As wild man said, they released photos of Daniel Perle getting decapitated and also the picture of Hussein. I have to ask, What if some Muslim terrorist had shot Obama in the head and killed him. You can bet your bottom dollar that that photo would be on every Arab news station immediately.

      Is Obama trying to hide something? and using this retaliation thing a cover?

      Although I don’t typically agree with Obama or his administration, I do agree with his administrations decision on not revealing the photos.

      As an American, Christian, and a former soldier; I don’t want to see the US stoop to the low standards of the far right wing of a religious sect. As a soldier, I never took pleasure in pulling a trigger but I did take pride in the way we did our mission and how we conducted ourselves as representatives of what I consider the greatest country in the world. We are bigger than one person and I don’t believe that the 309 million US residents should define our success or victory by one enemy casualty/fatality. He is not a trophy and NOT WORTH further conversation. Osama Bin Laden was a thug that many Muslim believers thought was evil.

      Like it or not, understand it or not, Osama Bin Laden was a legend, in part to the publicity and press we constantly gave him, to many right-wing Muslim believers and he was a revered holy man. Although right winged radical extremists make a small part of the overall population of Muslims, we need to remember that they are against almost everything we stand for and they still pose a fierce armed and dangerous presence with the funding to continue practicing their trade of warfare against all that oppose them.

      Let’s reach out to most Muslim believers and extend the hand that Christ taught us. We won the battle against the extremists but let’s keep focus on the war.

      Obummer doesn’t want to offend his Muslim bretherin.  He barely got approval for the raid, from the Muslim Brotherhood, who probably set restrictive rules as to the display of Bin Laden’s corpse.

      The American public will never see his body, as it is now in Davey Jones’ locker. If the public  cannot even view the photo of Bin Laden’s body,  this will call into question, whether we even got Bin Laden, in the first place and whether this whole show, is just another diversion from Obummer’s plunging approval ratings and the fake birth certificate issue.

      Given Obummer’s penchant for lieing and faking things, his track record for being truthful is non existant.

      Given the now, lack of even a shread of tangable evidence, that Bin Laden was actually killed, are we to believe, verbatium, all the unsubstantiated political speak, that  is coming out of the White House.

      In light of the fact, that the only time Obummer isn’t lieing, is when his mouth is closed, and even then, his Chicago gangster handlers will lie for him, are we supposed to swallow all of this horse pucky as fact.

      I think not.

    Headline in my newspaper today: ‘Bin Laden unarmed when SEALs stormed room’ By Matt Apuzzo and Adam Goldman   ‘Osama bin Laden was unarmed when Navy SEALs burst into his room and shot him to death’.
    NOW, this release of information by Obama that Osama was unarmed and shot to death by Navy SEALs would feed anti-U.S. sentiment also wouldn’t it? Just as much or more than showing the photos? Why would Obama ok the release that Bin Laden was unarmed when shot and killed? That statement did not need to be released if he is unwilling to release the photos.

      I don’t think most of the victims in the twin towers were armed when Osama took them out, so what difference should it make if he was unarmed when they took him out.

      This is the only thing that Obama has done that I have agreed with and now he is building up suspecion by not releasing the pictures. Give us a break for crying out loud.

    Terrorists will be terrorists no matter what we do.  People who do not believe OBL is dead will continue to believe that no matter what we do.  So the real question is, what about the ordinary guy?  Remember the torture photos that were released to the public and caused a lot of anger against American forces in the lands they were operating in?  That is what we need to avoid, especially since we can only “win” when we have the trust of those people and not the anger.  There is very little benefit to releasing; there is a lot of risk.  Logic says that we need to let dead dogs die.

      Sorry, but I think that’s a really wimpy approach. We can’t defeat terrorism if we’re constantly going to be thinking about how our actions are going to be received by the enemy and possibly offending them. This is just another example of pulling our punches in the war on terrorism. I’ve got news for those who put a priority on avoiding a backlash: The terrorists are not going to hate us any less no matter how much we cater to their whims. The hell with them!

      He wasn’t happy about the event because he wasn’t aware of the operation until it was well underway. I stated 2 days ago that he likeky had nothing to do with this operation and was probably off golfing, and guess what, that’s exactly what occurred.  It’s unclear whether he was more upset about not being in the loop or about the interruption to his golf game.

    OK, I’m really perplexed over this.  The Muslims that are outraged over the killing of this monster is still going to be outraged if we released the photos or not.  It’s OK though that the beheadings of Daniel Pearl, Nick Berg are videod and sent out which is despicable.  We all know Obama is dead as proverbial door nail, but there are others who just want to make sure.  Maybe after 2 1/2 years Obama will release the photos just like his birth certificate.

    I want to see the pictures of Osama bin Laden’s death.
     
    Am I living in a closed society like Communist China or a free and open America?
     
    Every time I become disgusted with the way things are going in America, I have to stop, take a step back and take a look at the big picture.
     
    What about it, can God bless America?
     
    God is no longer blessing America as He once did. God is removing His hand of blessing from America because our leaders will not execute convicted murderers and sexual perverts. There should be no life sentences or “death row.” Justice delayed is justice denied. One of the ways that the Lord can punish a nation is to have that nation destroyed by another nation. Another way to punish a nation is to spiritually blind the people of that nation so that they elect bad leaders for themselves. This is the moral equivalent of you shooting yourself in your foot. This is a perfect example of Consequential Wrath … the wrath of sowing and reaping. That explains why we were saddled with a president such as Bill Clinton who is a serial adulterer, an impeached and disbarred perjurer, and a baby killer. In actuality, we didn’t deserve someone as good as Bill Clinton. We deserved someone much worse.
     
    Instead of glorifying God and turning away from sin, our society has persisted on the downward path by continuing to condone the killing of babies and acts of perversion. In addition to all the rest of the adulterers, perverts, liars, and thieves in congress, God has seen fit to punish America even further with the election of Barack Obama who is an inexperienced, unqualified, pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, anti-Christ, pro-Marxist, Black Liberation Theology believing disciple of the racist, Jew-hating, and bigoted Reverend Jeremiah Wright.
     
    Before he was elected president, Barack Obama voted to allow sodomites and sodomettes to marry and voted four times against the “Born Alive Infant Protection Act.” Babies who were to have been aborted, but were still alive when delivered, should have been protected. Instead, the doctors and nurses did not provide care for those newborn little people but took them into a dirty laundry room where they were left alone to die without any further medical help. Barack Obama is so radical that he believes in killing babies after they have been born … this is infanticide, pure and simple. Just like Bill Clinton, Barack Obama also voted numerous times to allow “Partial-Birth Abortion” killings to continue. Obama and his cronies may be the wicked people who will finally bring about the end of America, as we have always known it.

    Interesting – we really really care what the terrorists think, eh? We don’t think they are inflamed already? This whole administration is so whimpy and milquetoast that it makes me laugh. He doesn’t mind maligning and inflaming his own countrymen, but when it comes to the ringleader of the Islamofaschists, he wants to be sensitive? He’s so busy crowing about his accomplishment I can’t wait to see how he feels about bragging rights when some nutjob lobs a grenade at him like they did to Bush.  Then we’ll see how much his sensitivity to peaceful Muslims has made a difference.

    The refusal to release the pictures is the same as the refusal for years to release the birth certificate.  It is a rope-a-dope.  It is designed to get anti-Obama people upset, and to lessen the discussion of other, more important issues.
    It is also a wedge between the Republican leadership (who can probably see the pictures if they want) and the base.
    If the heat gets too much, he probably will release them, but it will be a big non-event.  More likely, there will be an “unauthorized” leak.

    Sadism is alive and well in the Middle East and, apparently, in the USA.  No one here is dissing Republican Mike Rogers of the Intelligence Committee for speaking against releasing the photos.  Is he also a soul mate to the mass murderer?  Evidently the safety of Americans and protecting their lives means little to some.  What if they had bombed the compound?  There would have been nothing left to show.

    To weigh benefits against disadvantages one would need to know what are the facts and how they are known.
     
    Was told Osama bin Laden was the culprit and now am told he is dead.
     
    The weight of evidence for one equals the other.
     
    I know exactly what I have been told and if told, tomorrow, he has been resurrected, or a better bogyman exist, I know I was told this too.
     
    If one wishes to convince, they need to make their case with evidence which can be examined, and maintain a reputation for truthfulness

      Amen to that, Jota.

      Can you imagine a person being convicted of murder, with no  evidence, changing storys by the hour, no body and only the testimony of a known liar and a few of his employees.

      This would never happen in a court of law.  Are we now expected to believe these same lies because the mendacious POTUS said so???

    If you post the photos they’re fakes, if you don’t, they don’t exist. How can you possibly satisfy the conspiracy nuts, on either side of the issue? 

    I believe, if you release the photos, they would be mass reproduced and you’d see a sea of them in the next raghead march. If that makes it harder to get cooperation from people in Iraq and Afghanistan, then I say, don’t post the photos.

    Besides, it doesn’t matter what anyone thinks about it at the moment. If he wasn’t killed, he’d be putting out a new video within days to prove it. And the longer we don’t hear from him again, the stronger the proof to everyone that he truly is dead.

    If there is a conspiracy on our side, the fact that there were many people involved – those on the SEAL team, their leaders and their support personnel – in Washington and on the aircraft carrier – possibly dozens or even hundreds – means that it couldn’t be kept secret for long.

    So don’t sweat it.

    Repercussions or not, what’s the point of releasing photos when the evidence is at the bottom of the sea? Now there is no proof that any DNA obtained as ‘evidence’ actually came from this corpse, much less that it was really Bin Laden. Very convenient wasn’t it?

    Here is an article that will shed even more light on this entire Bin Laden fiasco:

    I’ve seen photos of mobsters lying in a pool of blood making headlines. No one cared about their wives, mothers, fathers and children seeing those pictures. If Bo is truly afraid of retaliation, do it right and kill him publicly with a bullet dipped in pig blood and bury him with slaughtered pigs. General ‘Blackjack’ Pershing did similar to that with Muslim terrorists and there was no more terrorism for approximately the next 50 years. That is the kind of treatment these animals understand and fear. Heaven forbid we do what works! Maybe Bo is going to show pictures the day before elections. I still don’t know why they only wounded his gun toting wife and intentionally killed him. As usual, where Bo is involved there is secrecy and no concern for what the American people want! I hate to say this but he’ll more than likely win the election. Bo gives more meaning that anyone can become President.

      Tony, I agree that anyone can BECOME president, but not just anyone can be re-elected president.  That 9-point or so bump he got in the polls yesterday was just smoothed away and maybe there’s a little dip in the road for him.  Although I’m not in his district, I’m in MI and Rogers is going to hear from me.

      Rather than a shroud, OBL should have been wrapped in one of those diapers he wore on his head then dipped in bacon grease before being shoved into the water.  Where is the EPA or one of the other alphabet crazies?  Aren’t they the ones against pollution?  I thought they were all against dumping garbage into clean waters.

      Despite BHO saying ‘No’ to publication of the pix, they’ll find their way onto the Internet.  What will he do then?  He’ll try to find out who did it, attempt to prosecute them, but he probably feels Manning is entitled to a ‘fair trial.’

      I don’t remember the last time I’ve been so riled up about something this one-term guy has done.

    I think it is all put on by Obama so he can look the hero and get his re-election solidified.  This has to be the reason that the photo’s can’t be released, if they even exist, and the supposed burial at sea, how easy to cover up a non-existent killing of the ultimate enemy of the state.

    I am a retired LTC of the East German Army, living in the US for more than 12 years. As a member of Oath Keepers, I took the Oath to defend the American Constitution (best ever written in human history) and the American people.
    I am not a friend of Bin Laden or any terrorist and not a pacifist at all.
    But, there is the Declaration of Independence, The Constitution with the Bill of Rights and there is common international law.
    It is right to do everything to catch someone like Bin Laden to bring him to justice. But it is crime to order to kill him without any trial.
    We are NOT terrorist like them.
    By the Declaration of Independence, all men are born equal. There is no law that allows the president simply order to kill without any verdict. Just he decided to do so.
    That terrorist was not even armed and did not fight. So far we know. All we saw so was that the President was sitting in front of a TV and watched that operation. The picture of a hero?

    The Congress did not declare any war since the end of WWII.
    The SEALS should have gotten the order to try to catch that guy, but not a clear order to kill him, even unarmed and not fighting at all. We are NOT murderer like them. Are we? Who has to be killed next?

    We are loosing all our friends worldwide. Even Germany, France, GB and also Israel. Poland and Czech were new but great friends. Were. Good job by our federal government.

      Wrong on all acounts.

      First, the Constitution applies to Americans, not anyone an American happens to meet.

      Second, Congress approved both the Afghan and Iraqi wars.

      Third, armed or unarmed, bin Laden was an enemy warlord combatant and fair game.  Opposing sides in a war don’t ask to see their opponents’ weapons before opening fire.  That’s just plain silly.  The purpose of the military is to kill people and break things.  Guess you missed that course in E German War College.

      Fourth, the reason we’re losing firends among allies is because of the Kenyan’s disgraceful treatment of them.

    If the Terrorist aren’t smart enough to see their dead leader and relate what they see to their  Past, Present & Future Actions then they need to have some sense bombed into their Heads. Period.
    A Warning is a Warning about actions.&  PC is Not a Warning to back off. It’s a game of ” Let’s Play & Talk Nice” till both sides lose the fight.
    All this PC, goody 2 shoes BS is exactly why the U.S. in in three “known” wars right now & God only knows how many other covert wars the PC DaDa Babies of Obama  are supporting.
    Not to mention the wars the present admin is supporting “Against” the U.S. with “We the People’s”  Tax money.
    All these endless Wars could have been better dealt with by the Old Fashioned Tactic. .
    If one must fight, fight to win & Dam the Politically Correct rules that only serve the Wimps [Politico Elitist}  that haven’t the courage to fight the enemy toe to toe. Not to mention using soldiers lives for fodder in a self-defeating battle for What??
    My version of how to win a war ??:
    Kick the enemy’s *** so bad the First time that they “Will” Never dare come back for a Second Helping.  Ref; Japan, Germany, Italy, France etc.
    I.E. –  The last True Victorious Wars  before the Play Nice , Wimps / Pu–ies,  invaded/ infiltrated Every Office & Agency in Dot “O”‘s Gov.
    Some may not know that the U.S. has been fighting the Muslims since “Before” America declared her independence.
    The early Merchant Marines were created Solely to counter the Muslim  high seas Pirates from ,guess where ?? Somalia. Thus further  Proof of my op that the First fights against the Muslims  should have also been the last fight,  instead of the First time in thousands of times “We” have had to deal with “Stupid”.
    I think 235 years is Long enough to play Nice.
    I’ll go to my grave wondering what these Muslims have over “We The People’s” Leaders.
    The Past , Present & likely Future admins & Congress have, are, &  will, be Empowering the Enemy till even “our’   Muslim coddling Leaders will be Powerless against halting the Islamic  destruction of Mankind. At the least the destruction of a “Free” Mankind.  The only kind that is worth living & Fighting for.
    The Ignorant idiots will kill themselves/ each other  off when they run out of Infidels to Murder.
    Just Hide & Watch folks , Or Lock & Load for the battle of Armageddon.
    What else could be in store when “We The People” have Leaders who are funding the Enemy with “Our” tax dollars.  Nothing better than to be Murdered with a Weapon  I helped  paid for. HUH??

    Given that Osama was a terrorist, we actually washed his body, wrapped it in white cloth, and buried it at sea to be politically correct, or was it out of fear?
    Why did we do this for a mass murderer? Hopefully it was not out of respect? Whom were we trying to placate? Was Obama just being a good little muslim again?
    How many people be-headed by Osama were given proper burials? The answer is none. Then, why should we be concerned about Osama final pictures. Perhaps they would serve as a warning to other terrorists not to kill Americans, or pay the ultimate price. He got what he deserved and we have nothing to be ashamed of.

    What these politicians fail to realize is that most of this world respects strength.  If we display weakness, the terrorists will laugh at us as they initiate their next attack.  If we show strength, they will think twice about even trying another attack.  To not release the photos shows a definite weakness.  I suspect that we are going to experience more attacks than ever, simply because we have displayed our weak side.  We’re in for it now folks!

    If the BO administration was so worried about backlash, why announce the operation at all?  The operation was small, secret, and the results did not have to be made public.  OBL could have just “dissappeared” – no conspiracy theories, no rioting mobs.  At worst there would be some suggestive but easily denied leaks.
    But, now that we have a public announcement from the highest office in the US government we can expect retaliation from the rioting mobs.  All the more reason to submit the US public to full body pat downs and other intrusive searches and control measures. Thanks BO! Might as well release the photos now because they will probably get leaked eventually anyway (probably sometime when the angry mobs need a little energy boost).
    Topping it off, BO is taking credit for something he did his best to avoid – making a responsible decision to do something.  This link has appeared already on this forum, but here it is again:

    They can’t release the photo yet cause they need more time to photoshop it to pass the many people who will check it for authenticity.

    The whole world must be laughing at us and it is no wonder our influence is waning.  First of all, BHO does and says all of the outrageous things to keep his opponents shorts in a twist and their collective eyes off the ball.  It is called the politics of distraction or obfuscation.  Regardless if it is oil drilling policy, amnesty, Gitmo, birth cert, UBL’s dead head, you name it.  While we’re on the blogs ranting about how un-American BHO is, he and his cohorts are fleecing us and driving our economy onto the rocks.  For sure, BHO’s energy, monetary and domestic policies are ruinous and controversial and deserve debate, but we must also be mindfull that BHO’s so called “Outrageous and un-American/unpatriotic” deeds and actions are malevolently calculated, deliberate and purposeful. We must watch his every move. Whenever there is a media flap, look to see what else is going on. What Executive Orders, Bueaucratic Rules & Regulations, Policy Initiatives, Legislation, etc., is BHO signing? The man is a snake and so are his minions.

    “the photo of bin Laden “shows a large, open gunshot wound on bin Laden’s forehead, revealing brain matter.” Fox News adds that “a senior U.S. official who has had access to the images said one of bin Laden’s eyes is open while the other is ‘completely gone.’”
    This sounds like a .308 expanding bullet exit wound.  Which means Bin Ladin was shot in the back of the head, the bullet expanded and went out the front making the large front wound.  That’s why they won’t release the photo, sounds like he was shot from behind I suppose trying to get away.

    Maybe they shot him from behind and he was not even armed. I do not blame our soldiers for that. But I never would do that without I have to defend someone else.
    The whole operation was not as it should have to be. There was no right to send soldiers to kill. Try to capture him and when it happens, he will die. But this dirty show is not what American Soldiers are. The world means now that the Americans are going to kill everyone they do not like without considering any law. That is the worst.

      I will acknowledge your position about How OBL was off’d . “IF”
      You will accept the Fact that the event was an act of Retaliation for an Act of War.
      Once again, If one is Farced to fight, Fight to win, and defeat the enemy so severely that the one’s left are forever afraid to come back for seconds.
      Then and only then, As in after the battle against the Enemies of  a Free Nation is won , by any & all necessary means available should the Silly Rule book of War be interjected into the Battle.
      War is “Not” a Play Nice Game of Rules, especially after 9/11.
      Thus the Play Nice “Politically Correct” approach is the First step toward a Great & Permanent Loss of Freedom for “We The People’ of America as well as a Go ahead for Freedom’s Enemies thus  all Nations of the Globe will  fall  due to  the same misguided Pretense of Playing Nice.
      BTW: Does the last few month’s World  events that Obama & Hillary are ,were. & will be Directly involved in give one cause of Concern about what The “O” Admin is actually doing ??  Think about what the other hand is doing People. It’s the Other hand that is hell bent on destroying  so’s to rebuild { Transform}  all of the Nations of the World.
      The Hand “WE” are being shown,  is the Hand holding a Loaded Pair of Dice.

    That jerk who is trying to pass himself off as our president (and not doing even that very well) couldn’t find his rear end with both hands in broad daylight.  Don’t blame him for not releasing the photo; blame his handlers.  If Soros doesn’t want it released, it’s not going to be released.  After all, it’s for our own good, and Uncle George knows what’s best for us.

    TexasGuy, you are right.
    We all know that guy is a puppet on the string.
    They took over the whole education system. Lenin said: Let me teach your children for only three years and they are mine. Got it? That is exactly what they are doing since docent of years.
    I grew up behind the iron curtain in the former East Germany. I served the army on a very high level. I know very well how that works. Uncle George is just one of them.
    It is much worse than my American friends expect. It is almost over. Look at http://www.oathkeepers.org and go down the page. There are an interview with me captured on tape. LTC Spens about the fall of the Berlin Wall. I should have done better than that, but it was 3 am in the morning and I just came back from my service at Texas Border Volunteers 500 miles south of Dallas. Very less sleep, but we have to do something. Complaining everyone will not change anything.

      Excellent read ! . Thanks for a very enlightening & Factual testimony .@ http://www.oathkeepers.org/
      Note: Interview of  ”LTC Spens” about the fall of the Berlin Wall.
      This is, by far,  a entirely new & Very workable concept regarding  ”We The People’s” concerns about where America is likely headed & also a very effective Plan of Halting the oppressor’s of Dot Gov & their progressive Nudges thereof.
      You have also answered the Very important question I’ve had about ,When the time arrives for civil discourse as to how the oppressor’s Military might be dealt with.
      I have to have Faith that “We The People’s” Military “Will” hold to their Oath of service and do exactly what would be the Right thing to do.
      On a Side Note: It  Seems ironic that the Peaceful Protest in the Middle East seem to run along this very concept. With the exception of Who in the masses is actually Using the Peaceful Transformation concept “Within” the countries of  Egypt,  Yeman, Iran, Libya, Etc.
      IMO, The “Who”   I refer to above would be those affiliated / allied with the Concept of “One World Governance”  I.E.– Soros,  Obama,  H.Kissinger, Clintons, , basically , all  those in the U.S. Gov &  those Not Elected  within true circles of power ,  Referred to as Progressives, Socialist, etc.
      I will submit that the Protest in the Mid East have little to do with the Masses wishes within the general population and Much to do with a Rouge Regime & it’s covert plain clothed  Army  efforts to Fundamentally   Transform said nations in conflict.
      What would you suggest be done when the Protesters are actually covert enemies of the Nation they are Transforming into what will likely be a  short lived Transformation into  Freedom via planned False Promises. by  a Few who have promised without any intention of Delivering on a Promise & thus ,  perpetrated  for the sole purpose of future  Government Suppression of the masses’ Freedoms ??

    There are two sides of the coin to be considered.  One being that it would be in poor taste and might incite anger and more danger for our troops abroad; the other that there might not be any photos to release.

    Who the hell cares how/where the SOB was shot?  The SOB is dead.  Let all those slugs and all who support them know that is their fate.  We should print billions of leaflets w/Saddam & UBL death pictures and drop them all over the muslim world.  Eighty per cent of Muslims hate us.  We’re never going to change their minds, kill ‘em all and let God sort ‘em out!  We did that in WW-II and it brought the enemy to its knees.

    There are the pictures when Obama watched the action in the situation room as a hero.
    So there are videos and pictures, or all is a fake. Got it?
    I do not think to release that would harm our troops at all. Because the whole Muslim world hates the Americans already. Most Americans would see that. So why does that guy hide it like his birth certificate?
    We can only continue to show the truth and bring our troops home.
    Wed cannot fight worthless wars around the globe, because the Chinese will not pay for that anymore.
    Trying capture Bin Laden would be fine and everyone of the western world would agree. Just killing him is a crime. He was a criminal. Are we the same by just killing anyone we mean he may be guilty? America should do better.

    America was the best country of the world. That seems to be gone. After the most wanted terrorist Bin Laden was killed, Americans cheered on the streets like the Moslem are doing. Is that America? Is that justice?
    Bin Laden deserved to die and he should. But not by an execution that way. We had to have to try to capture him follow our law and sent him to death.
    When he had fight and was killed, it would be fine. But it seems he was not even armed. So, bring him to justice and sent him to death instead just murder him.

      Oh yes–’bring him to justice…’  He HAS been brought to justice and without a long, drawn out trial where we’d probably have to pay for an attorney to defend him, feed him, clothe him, etc., where it would cost us countless thousands if not millions of dollars.  Why didn’t he do that on 9/11?  Instead he took the murderous route, killing almost 3,000 innocents simply because he hated us.  He certainly didn’t try to ‘follow our law.’  Come on, spensg, you should know better than that.  BTW, America was not only the best country in the world, it still IS the best country in the world.  However, with that wimp in the WH who bows to those who wish us harm, I fear for my country.

    And another thing; yes we should be vigilant, but all this hand wringing about retaliation is idiotic PC malarky.  We must meet violence with ten fold more violence.  Give them the unrelenting wrath of God.  That is all those primitive people understand.  I know them!  They are obsequious, deceitful, murderous and barbaric animals.  We have to pound them into submission, destroy their culture and bring them into the 21st Century.  T.J.

    How come the same socilaist crowds didn’t hesitate releasing the Abu Gharib photos to incite violence against our troops in Iraq?  Mughabie Obama is running a dictatorship.  He is deciding what is good for us.  American taxpayers paid for the photos.  Release them.  Besides, how do I know that it was Osama?  Churchill used to have a double during WWII.  Show us the evidence.  Remember, Iraq did not have weapons of mass destruction and the socialists and communists in the democratic party pounded George Bush with that.  Without proof. I don’t believe this government.

    If most of these comments are representative of Republicans, the party is in trouble.  I’m glad I left to become an Independent.  It appears sound reason, civility, decency have left the party.

      and I see you are still shouting – not necessary, you know.  Republicans aren’t deaf (or blind).
       
      I guess you consider the recent actions of Independents and Democrats in Wisconsin a fine example of ‘sound reason, civility and decency’ – I don’t!

      helenlouise, you were a Republican?  I think you may mean a RINO if you associated yourself with that party at all.  Yeah, we’re getting a lot of that ‘sound reason, civility, decency’ in MI same as was displayed in WI.  I’ll try speaking louder next time.

    Pictures of Bin Ladin or not, we are on the way of destroying America. One out of six Americans are now dependent on food stamps. That are about 17%. They will vote to continuing getting your and my money.
    The Romans said: Bread and Games. That is what is going on here by now. Every one with a brain has to stand up and fight for America, or we will loose it.
