    Default Should the Pics Of bin Laden be released?

    This question has been asked on FB pretty much all day in one form or another. I am actually shocked no one has started a thread about it here. Do you think that the postmortem pics of Osama should be released?

    No. Why? I just think it's gruesome, and wouldn't "prove" anything to the conspiracy theorists who are questioning whether it is true. Easy enough to alter a picture, kwim?

    I have no interest in seeing it.

    Not sure that those it matters to should control the decision.. And the majority of us that are sane don't care much either way.

    I think they should release it just so the remaining Al Queada can't claim that he is not dead and is still hiding out somewhere. There are ways to prove a picture is authentic.

    Nope. I respect my country enough to believe something of this nature. Any "deather" won't be satisfied anyway, they will think it was photoshopped or fake.

    No, no, no.

    I was absolutely appalled that the execution video of Hussein was in circulation. Disgusting. We should trust in our officials enough to let it be.

    As long as they release the long form, I have no issue.

    I kid.

    I trust that he's dead. I highly doubt they'd make a big 'ol huge deal out of it if we didn't actually kill him. Anyone who really needs that proof is in need of help, IMO.

    Dontcha think that if BL was still alive, he may have heard news that we "killed him"? Seeing as how he has had no problem getting his special little "death to all infidel" videos out and distributed in the past, I'm trusting that goal #1 were he alive would be to prove it and make the US look like idiots.

    The picture should not be released to the public. Ick.

    I have this issue of not sharing information that is possessed and people are aware of, without extremely sound reason to hide it. While i don't think people *need* to see this.....i don't think there is a sound *need* to hide it, therefore i think it should be available.

    I know it happens, and we a prevented from seeing or knowing things that probably don't have sound reasoning in hiding on a regular basis, but I think that scenario should be avoided as much as possible. No need to hide it? Then make it available...we can be capable of deciding individually if it something we want to partake in seeing or not.

    Its the principle of the matter to me.
