    Obama Says He Will Not Release Bin Laden Photo

    President Obama has decided not to release any photos of Usama bin Laden's dead body, Fox News confirms, amid concern that doing so could inflame sentiment against U.S. troops.
    The president revealed his decision during an interview with CBS News' "60 Minutes." A U.S. official confirmed to Fox News that Obama had decided against the release. The announcement follows a charged debate on whether the risk might outweigh the benefit if any images or video are released showing bin Laden after he was fatally shot by U.S. forces.

    Dumbest thing I've ever heard. "We'll definitely release it" "No, it might make people mad we can't release it."

    Dumb.. .all around dumb.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I don't think the government should release a gory photo of a guy we assassinated, no matter how much he deserved it. If it were to be mysteriously leaked however...

    When did Obama say they were definitely releasing it? This is the first I've heard from the whitehouse on whether they would release.

    Kernel Sanders, why shouldn't the phote be available via internet as proof of Ladin's death? Obviously we have worse photos on the internet.

    The indecision, the idiocy of it all. You don't say you're going to release a photo like this, then decide not too. You say "We're discussing the situation a decision as not been made".

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

    BRIAN WILLIAMS:
    There is a report as we have this conversation, for the record, 10:36 a.m., that the President, the White House, has decided and, it may already be out, to release a proof of death photo. What light can you shed on this?
    LEON PANETTA:
    The government obviously has been talking about how best to do this, but I don't think there's-- there was any question that ultimately a photograph would be presented to the public. Obviously I've seen those photographs. We've analyzed them and there's no question that it's Bin Laden.
    BRIAN WILLIAMS:
    Were you debating how the release of a photo would go over, given its gruesomeness, versus the need on behalf of people all over the world to demand proof of death?
    LEON PANETTA:
    I think there's no question that there were concerns and there were questions that had to be debated about just exactly question kind of impact-- would these photos have. But the bottom line is that, you know, we got Bin Laden and I think we have to reveal to the rest of the world the fact that we were able to get him and kill him.

    Doesn't bother me either way. I'd prefer it to be released, it's nothing we haven't seen in a slasher movie and the like.

    Would make a nice T-shirt with Property of The Government of the United States of America on the front, and Since May 1, 2011... Property of Arabian Sea Frozen Foods Company with a box of fish sticks with said logo on the back.

    Have you ever been president, Vicchio?

    What is madness?

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

    I don't care one way or the other, but the picture wouldn't satify those who doubt. Some folks will never accept anything.

    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.
