    That said, they will probably be "leaked" eventually.
    Given the whole "Osama had porn thing" I suspect they are actively making sure they leak the right bits of information to discredit him. Its a smart move.

    Washington (CNN) -- A conservative legal watchdog group has filed the first lawsuit seeking public release of video and photographs of the U.S. military raid and aftermath that left al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden dead.

    Judicial Watch is asking the Department of Defense to comply with a Freedom of Information request for the material, especially photos of the September 11 mastermind lying dead on the third floor of his Pakistan hideout. The legal complaint to force compliance was made in federal court in Washington on Friday.

    The group says it is being "irreparably harmed" by the Obama administration's "unlawful withholding of requested records."


    snip

    Obama had barred any public release of photos or video, telling CBS News, "It is important to make sure that very graphic photos of somebody who was shot in the head are not floating around as an incitement to additional violence or as a propaganda tool." He added, "We don't trot this stuff out as trophies. We don't need to spike the football."

    Judicial Watch calls itself a "a conservative, nonpartisan educational foundation (promoting) transparency, accountability and integrity in government, politics and the law."
    Hopefully they are successful in getting the photos released. Everybody should have the opportunity to see the photos of him dead,especially his victims and victims families.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I for 1 don't need tosee Osama dead. I believe he is dead and to release the photos would do nothing but create more trouble foe us here at home and for our troops.

    This would be worse than when the picutures of Abograde prison were released.

    This is a dumb-assed idea and any harm some idiots are seeking to do to Obama will hurt more than it cold ever help anyone.

    As far as I know there aren't sources for hypothetical situations such as this.

    In complete agreement with you -- mark the day and time!
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Right. I just wanted to you to clarify that you were making empty claims and generalizations purely for emotional pull.

    Surely this is the first time anyone has expressed their opinion rather than fact on this message board.

    Correct. This also isn't the first time baseless generalizations have been called out either.
