    Well, here's a clue for you:

    Not very many people in the US have any respect for a mass murderer.

    Putting his death mask on a t-shirt would supplant all those idiot Che t-shirts out there.

    Smacks a bit too much of putting his head on a pike in front of the WH.
    The Mayor was thinking that this process would enable Obama to give a more gift more suitable to the Queen of England than some stupid iPod loaded with Obama campaign speeches.

    There are conflicting issues in this case given the desire for proof, but I think publishing the photo would be in bad taste.
    Ultimately the courts will rule the public has the right to know and the photos will be released. Welcome to a land governed by the First Amendment.

    Leon Panetta's personal opinion being wrong is hardly Obama waffling.
    What it was is Panetta's opinion as an official in the Obama Administration and what it indicates is that the Incompetent President is incapable of keeping his staff on message even for something as simple as the release of a photograph.

    Of course, it's probably been faked, but then, there would be no way to know whether any image was faked or not. A photo in the digital era is proof of nothing.
    That has been confirmed to be a fake.

    What about the place he was killed? Maybe they will go there for that kind of connection? I mean that is where he died.

    So, you're saying the agressors in the conflict can be as insenstive as they please, and the defenders, the Americans, have to bend over and spread their cheeks, and buy the KY, too.

    Well, we have men in the ME that will be targeted by those who followed BinLaden,
    You are referring to, of course, the men in the Middle East who are already targetted by the terrorists, and that the death of bin Laden doesn't change that in the least.

    [quote]and we need to be sensitive to their safety. Why pour gasoline into the fire. We've killed BinLaden, we don't need to make T-shirts and the like out of his remains - what idiocy is that?[quote]

    It's called "freedom".

    Democracies don't do well when their governments can hide facts.

    The people have the right to see all the facts and to make up their own minds. That a few won't reach the correct conclusion isn't any concern of yours.

    Especially since the government never hesitated in releasing photos of prisoners at Abu Graib, for example.

    Given the fact that this mission was in planning for months, its inconceivable that a political hack like Obama didn't consider what to do with photographs of the corpse. This charade about "releasing, sure...oh! no no no, they're too gory, but he's dead, yes he is..." is just a teaser game serving some purpose.

    One of the purposes it's revealing is that the Administration is willing to sacrifice America's right to supervise it's government, which requires knowledge, to the tender feelings of people who are going to hate us and retaliate anyway. It doesn't matter that bin Laden's body was patted all over with baby powder, and kissed, or whatever silliness the muslim burial rites are. Those people don't actually need an excuse to kill innocents, it's what they like to do.

    So Obama's fake indecision isn't serving any useful purpose.

    One of the possible reasons is that Obama was forced to surrender a documet resembling a birth certificate, and he needs to create a new furor to load his "these people are crazy" paintball gun.
    Did Obama use those exact words as why he will not release the photos? Because they are too gory? I do not think that was his reason. Maybe I am mistaken?

    They have video so they could at least release the video of them going up and of him right before he was shot. I wish they would release these pics. But support Obama 100%. He knows what is best for our country and there could be reasons we are not even privy to.

    But, parading the picture of the dead OBL is just adding fuel to the fire and it serves no purpose. Those that take satisfaction in having the picture published have no sensitivity toward our troops.
    Purposes served:

    It informs the enemy we do not respect them. Absolutely Osama should not have been given any form of muslim burial rites. While the muslims say that dumping the body to the fishes is an insult, putting him in a shallow unmarked grave in any one of six continents without ceremony, or cremated, or indeed, dropped naked with a cannonball tied to his ankle to feed the lobsters would all have been more fitting. The man did not reserve any shred of respect from his victims.

    Disrespecting the American people by hiding the evidence is also wrong. So what if people will play with the photo, putting it on t-shirts, beer mugs, and right-handed toilet paper? Is there any particular reason Osama should be treated with greater respect by the Left than Ronald Reagan?

    Don't give us any of that "safety of the troops" guff, you people were ecstatic when the body count hit four digits, and doubly so when it hit 4,000 before the 2008 election. You people were all behind the truly stupid notion that the US should post a specific date for withdrawal from our fields of combat, and you had no regard for the safety of the men in the field then.

    Killing Osama raised the tempory risk factor. Publishing photos of the corpse, at this time, will not add to the outrage felt by the terrorists. Delay of the inevitable, though, will cause a secondary spike as the animals are reminded of their failures.

    No.

    Obama doesn't want to hurt the feelings of his co-religionists.

    If you want to cut straight to the heart of the matter.

    They have video so they could at least release the video of them going up and of him right before he was shot. I wish they would release these pics. But support Obama 100%. He knows what is best for our country and there could be reasons we are not even privy to.
    Obama has, only one time in his entire life, done what was best for the nation. That was when he ordered the strike team to enter and do their job. Yes, Obama clearly knows what is best for the nation, it's the only way he could be so consistent in his avoidance of the beneficial path.
