    Gawker — Today's gossip is tomorrow's news
    Up until a few moments ago, when CBS News reported Obama's decision, the Administration had issued mixed signals on whether it intended to release graphic evidence of Osama's demise. CIA director Leon Panetta stated that he expected a photo would eventually be released, while Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Secretary of State Hilary Clinton were reportedly opposed. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said yesterday that "there are sensitivities here in terms of the appropriateness of releasing photographs of Osama bin Laden in the aftermath of this firefight."

    But all the agonizing may have been for naught. According to Daniel Metcalfe, the former chief of the Department of Justice's Office of Information and Privacy—a post that effectively made him the government's top expert in the Freedom of Information Act—the odds are better than even that a FOIA lawsuit seeking the photo's release would succeed.
    sure do, you should try again.

    the original story told us that Obama was watching it unfold in real time. apparently Osama was using his fourth wife as a human shield and hiding behind her. she, naturally, got killed. Osama got killed while he fired his gun while hiding behind his wife. apparently in the process one of Osama's sons was also killed, hell we even got told the name of his dead son. i mean ****, if Obama watched it in real time it happened yeah? someone saw Osama firing a gun and hiding behind his wife right? they watched it in real time!

    since the original report, there are far too many different accounts to resolve this dilemma of reported 'facts' not matching up, so in their wisdom the Obama Administration simply decided that they would show us the pictures of them watching everything unfold in real time with horrified expressions on their faces. we can assume that the pictures shown didn't include them sitting around for the 20-25 minutes during the 'dead spot'. oops, that came out later.

    now it appears Osama was not armed and was not hiding behind his wife... his wife was actually not killed... the son that they said was killed was not killed and apparently it was another son that was killed? maybe. even the "mansion" that he lived in, was nothing more than a dump.

    i don't need to see the pictures but it would be nice if there was some constancy and accuracy in relation to what actually happened.

    Nope. Just used Drudge, as the poster above me asked, and foudn a nice little article backing up what I've been saying, there were mixed signals from the WH about releasing the photos. Do you disagree there were mixed signals?

    FOIA cannot violate national security.

    People. Please, don't birther this. I'm gonna just check other threads and pretend there's not a new birthist movement.

    From what it says there (not that I'm going to go with an article that says: Today's gossip is tomorrow's news).

    There were no mixed signals, from what it says the CIA guy "expected" them to be released, he didn't say that they would be released.

    I really think this whole thing is a non issue.

    What is necessary is the release of the videos recorded from helmet cams (assuming they used them) and all photographs, simply because the Administration and the news media, yet once again, as they ALWAYS do, can't get the story straight.

    Will releasing the information make the story straight? Nope. There're idiots out there who still feel Gore won the 2000 election. There will always be those kind of idiots.

    But, by putting the information out there, it becomes possible for real historians and other forensic specialists to begin piecing the true sequence of events together and eventually a consensus is arrived at what the salient points are and what their relationship to each other are.

    Refusal to release the data prompts the necessary question:

    Why the coverup?

    Releasing the photo of a corpse does not release security senstive information, and is thus subject to FOIA.
