    He also promised to kill Osama Bin Laden, which he delivered on. People keep conveniently forgetting that.

    Certainly you'd like everyone to move on and forget abut the photos, as would Obama, just as he'd prefer everyone to forget about his many unrealized campaign promises. But that is not the way the real world works.
    No, I think people should move on because it's a minor issue. They've denied release of the photos, get over it. If you are really that desperate to wank off to some gory photos, just wait until WikiLeaks releases them, which I'm sure they will.

    Strong? Asking people to move on and fuggedaboudit is not a demonstration of strength. It is a plea to stop bullies from picking on you.
    I guess ones definition of strength also depends on what level of partisan hackery they are working under.

    No, it's been mentioned many times. I'm pleased that this promise was kept.

    It should have been a minor issue but its been bungled into a major issue. And while you can ask people to move on they won't, just as they wouldn't move on until his birth certificate was finally released. Didn't he learn anything from that?

    If you seriously believe that strength, perception, and the war on terror is just a partisan issue then you are half way down the tube already.

    Seems rather counterintuitive. Kinda of stupid really

    A White House official says President Barack Obama will meet with some of those involved in the military assault that killed Osama bin Laden when he visits Fort Campbell, Ky., on Friday.
    Why bring up, the unit of *said* assaulters??

    I am glad you are able to joke about this serious matter but it will not be happening as sounds like they will be destroying the mansion/compound. This will not stop people from flocking there as everyone knows where it is now.

    That is very true. I think some may still build some sort of shrine or something to honor him. Guess we will see.

    BTW, I think others are correct in that they (gov) are saying they will not release the pics due to various issues but that they will make sure that something is leaked to appease everyone. The gov does not wish to be the ones to say ok here are the pics. So they will leak em and blame it on something.

    I don't think that the pictures should be released. At least not the way they have been described. They are absolutely gruesome and all we need is a US sanctioned released photo to become the new propaganda piece for Al-Qaeda. Not only that, but it could cause increased violence against troops if it's that violent.

    You may very well be right about that. That's one very legitimate reason.

    I disagree and believe they should be released, but you bring up a good point why they shouldn't.
    The national security of the United States can never be left in the hands of liberals.

    The troops are armed and trained and we should not worry about them getting hurt. They can handle themselves, and we should not bow to the idea that the terrorists might get upset by our being honest. Once appeasing terrorists, or potential terrorists, starts the slippery slope has been reached.
