Conspiracy theorists are impervious to fact and logic anyway. Birth certificate, where is the birth certificate? No, no, we meant the long form. No, no, that one has to be faked. You killed Bin Laden? So you say. Show us the proof. No, no, not that proof, the other proof. The moon landing was faked, you know, and the attack of 9/11 was an inside job for sure, and space aliens killed Kennedy, and every scientific organization in the world is behind the global warming hoax, and well, anything we choose to believe is ipso facto real and indisputable and anyone who says differently is just deluded. Bin Laden? Why, that doesn't look anything like him. For one thing, he doesn't have that hole in his head. That is obviously photoshopped.
You can't counter irrationality with empirical fact.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
It wouldnt really matter if they did release the picture. If anything it serves to not inflame even more hatred and rhetoric in the ME. Let it be. Some will always deny it. Hell we have pics of JFK on the slab and people still call the photos a fake.
It matters not...there are already tons of doctored 'dead' Osama photos out there.
This decision is like scoring a touchdown and running back to the sidelines as opposed to scoring a touchdown and showing your ass in front of the cameras. Full on approve.
We are a government of/by/and for the people. This is not "transparency". hopefully a FOIA lawsuit is filed.
Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
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.
From what I remember, and I maybe incorrect with finals, papers, and other things, but I believe it was Panetta, not Obama that said the photos should be released.
