Obama will not release bin Laden photos

Wednesday, May 4, 2011

President Barack Obama said in a taped interview with “60 Minutes” correspondent Steve Kroft that he has decided not to release photos of Osama bin Laden taken after he was killed, CBS News reports.

Of course he won't do that. He WANTS the speculation to continue regarding whether bin Laden was "really" killed or not. He does NOT WANT to give Americans any closure, to know that the perpetrator of 9/11 is truly dead.

Though unconfirmed, Special Operations insiders believe that the mission was already under way before Obama was informed of it in order to ensure that this "high value target" was not permitted to get away. True or not, why would Obama, as asserted, have to "sleep on it" to make the decision to proceed? The truth of what occurred will not be known until Obama is long gone out of office and surely not while he is campaigning to be reelected.

Obama may have just played to only possible re-election card he had. It’s going to be very hard for him to pull another monkey out of his ass in the future. By election time all of this will have played out and be a footnote in American history.

Hopefully, Obama will be nothing more than a footnote as well.

Call me cynical, but the contrived ambiguity and odd dearth of photo documentation makes one wonder if the man was killed, or if he really even existed in the first place.

Oh well, if it does turn out that Osama Bin Ladin needs to have existed, and to have died as well, I'm sure the United States Ministry of Truth can create and provide the proper documentation.

The claim that showing the photos will"enflame" the terrorists is just so much bullshit.

These are people who have been releasing videos of infidels like Daniel Pearl being killed as his head is cut off!

Osame "inspired" a lot of Muslim martyrs. Now let us see his "martyrdom."

You're absolutely right Alan's B.S.

If Obama was supposedly so radical, and such a large percentage of Muslims didn't condone his actions or support his jihad, then why would they be so upset? They, along with the rest of us, should WANT to know that he's dead, and that his body was properly handled and disposed of according to Muslim customs and traditions.

We all know what this is about. Obama doesn't want that image being associated with him in Muslim communities around the world. Period.

"if my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land". 2 Chronicles 7:14

Alan, the world has seen a lot of death and destruction lately from natural events: tornados, hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, fires, and floods. It is not inconceiveable that we will see food shortages right here in the bread basket of the world this year. Hundreds of thousands of acres of farmland now lay flooded, too late for the spring planting. None of us know if these are 'Warning Signs" from the Divine, but one really has to wonder. Some of our laws, abortion rights, particularly, and the people who support them are totally off base and out of sync with the teachings of ANY religion that practices in this country, save the non-religious atheists and agnostics. It might just be a good thing for the 82% of us Americans who call ourselves Christians to join with our Jewish brethern who worship the same God, "he who has no name" to fall on our knees and pray for forgiveness, right thinking, and healing in our land.

A total fabrication is still a fabrication. If anything, this "announced" killing of bin Laden will only serve to stir up Islamic would-be terrorists (which it is already doing), but inflame those socialist governments of all the world. It was a clear violation of international law, and the worst sort of "cowboying" due entirely to Obama's plunging poll ratings.

Monty Python himself could not have conjured up such a parody.

I guess that this just ONCE again proves that Obama cares more about the muslims than he does his own people and all of the families of 911. I suppose that all the victim's families dont have the RIGHT to see the "evidence". But this is just what I expected would happen because there was no OSAMA BIN LADEN. Just a Man or (maybe a few men) who PLAYED osama bin laden. Osama is the modern day Oswald.

@Soreguy: You need a new pair of glasses. Who do you think we've all be looking at since 9/11? It was Osama bin Laden. Very real and now very dead.
