    It's... madness. Besides, the photo WILL leak out, eventually.

    The photo might be leaked, but we don't know.

    Good decision.

    A picture of a dead body would prove nothing. The conspiracy nuts would just say it was faked anyway. We don't need to see a gruesome picture to know that Bin Laden is dead.

    The photos can just be leaked to the press.

    Why don't you care? ... Why wouldn't a real picture work(?)... a picture with a person's face is far more concrete than a birth certificate. That's untrue; it's impossible to never accept anything as real.

    It's not the NOT releasing I am bothered by.

    It's the "Yes it will" then "No it won't" hem hawing. DUMB.

    Vic... I think they are protecting the shooter, as he failed to nail Osama between the eyes. The guy really has to practice a little more.

    I think that publishing photos of emenies you've killed is disrespectful. Smacks a bit too much of putting his head on a pike in front of the WH. There are conflicting issues in this case given the desire for proof, but I think publishing the photo would be in bad taste.

    Leon Panetta's personal opinion being wrong is hardly Obama waffling.

    One, he was shot in the head. Likely to cause some distortion. Two, I only have pictures I've seen as comparison, and those are not all that recent. And birthers have shown that no amount of evidence convinces the person who simply doesn't want to believe. Birthers, truthers, now proofers, will all find away to explain away all evidence. We've seen this constantly.

    Now, I suspect the photo will make it out one way or another, but it won't settle anything for those who don't want to believe.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    What position is on my mind? It would be better of you to elaborate on the problem you see.

    We may very well end up with a case of the Deathers.
