    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    These troops are well trained and possess the latest technological weaponry. If any scumbag terrorists threatens them in any way then they have the capacity to respond, and should.

    Perhaps some some photos of what happens to terrorists, and whether any celestial virgins might be interested in a bullet ridden corpse, might discourage further recruitment efforts.

    'Course it was fake.

    Why release something to prove he's dead? No photo is going to prove he's dead...because there will always be those who will say it's a fake. Which, frankly, it could be.

    To those who need proof? I'd say: "Prove he's alive."

    The president did the right thing.

    They were are enemies before, they are our enemies now, regardless if you release or not release the pics...

    We've seen civs before getting mutilated by these people, We have also seen Americans jumping from the towers to their deaths and saw Saddam's sons being drag about, etc, etc

    Appeasing our enemy is not a wise move.

    not the same as if he actually had a place on solid ground that held his remains.

It's not really that surprising in this age of reality TV and sensationalism that people would find him not showing the photo as being anti-climactic. Honestly, though, what purpose does would it serve? This is yet another case of 'damned if you do and damned if you don't'. I'm sure that if they had shown the photo, he would be attacked by people for being crass. Do people really need to see a picture of the guy to fulfill some kind of twisted blood lust fetish? Can't you look at the fake photo and wank off to that instead? Or is it that people don't believe the guy is dead and that this is some massive cover up? Honestly, what is the reason?
    What's the reason for not showing it? Aside from the lame ass excuse we've been given.

    If a fear of angering the bad guys even more is the only reason, then there is no reason not to show the photographic history of this event.

    If this fear of the enemy is the reason, then we have one weak ass president sitting in the most powerful office in the world.

    Perhaps he is considering those on the fence or indifferent.

    I'm not sure if it's a fear of anything. It would be kind of crass to release the photo just so some people with bloodlust can get their jollies out. Is it not enough that they killed him? It seems too absurd to be possible at first, but this issue is slowly turning into the Birther issue all over again. Can you honestly not wait until the photo is leaked via Wikileaks or wherever?
