Why won't Obama let me see pictures of Bin Laden's dead corpse?

This is BS, okay, now, how do we know it really happened, I know it probably did, but there is no proof given to us, and after everything we've been through, we should be allowed to see it. If some people disagree, well then they don't have to look, but I want to.

Getting Bin Laden was the only thing Obama did that I liked, but now he is just frusterating me again.

Update:

"Insensitive to to Muslim World"

\

uh, not really, only to the Muslim extremest that want us dead, anyone that likes him- Should be thrown into the ocean with him.

Update 2:

Al Quida is going to attack us whether or not we show the pictures, we didn't disgrace the body, and we gave him a proper burial, and to me that is much MORE than enough.

Update 3:

@ Scooter- Oh, I'm not taking anything away from Obama, what he did was great, I just disagree with the decision not to release the photos. It's a whole different topic.

    Apparently it will cause violent attacks. Oh and I suppose they already aren't planning a violent attack. Come on. At school today my friend showed me a picture of him dead that was taken through the helmet.

    Found the picture:http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://photo-j...

    I'm think of changing my avatar and name back. Should I?

    @Scooter- The pictures of Hussein were released.

    Look, this is Obama at his finest hour of slight of hand. The unemployment figures are coming out this week. It's not going to be good and there won't be any sign of any recovery. The bin Laden pictures along with all the different stories about what happened is nothing but a smoke screen to keep every body's mind off of what is actually going on with the unemployment figures, the economy, and the rising gas and food prices. Obama isn't so stupid as to keep the photos hidden for no reason and it damn sure isn't because of fear of retaliation. Al Qaeda is attacking anywhere and everywhere it can and they're not going to be any more pissed than they already are over some pictures of bin Laden dead. You can't look or read anywhere that the bin Laden story isn't the top coverage with the media. All these other things have taken a back seat to this one story that won't affect anyone's lives personally. Obama is playing everyone, including the media.

    I Want To See Pictures Of Bin Laden Dead

  • 9 years ago

    What reason do you have to think it didn't?

    If he WERE still alive, wouldn't he put out a brand new film, to show the US up?

    As everyone who is a civilized human being knows, any form of "parading" of a dead enemy's remains is disgusting and uncivilized (and possibly prohibited under international law, but I'm not sure of that). That is would ALSO be inflammatory is a good enough reason for all who love the US.

    Why do you want to see MORE Americans and allies murdered by bin Laden's supporters? Just because you want to see gruesome pictures?

    The administration is weighing the consequences, last I heard. Given the fact that most wing-nuts have no respect for actual EVIDENCE anyway (a reference to those who STILL say Obama isn't from the US), there's no point trying to satisfy THEM, especially at the risk of alienating all HUMANS all over the world.

    The ONLY thing he's done you've liked. I see. You would have preferred we'd have had a 25% unemployment rate for the last two years? Disgusting!

  • We need to stop with this division & for once lets agree that our President whether we like him or not did the right decision here getting Bin Laden. If Bush & Clinton & had a set they would have finished Bin Laden off in 1998 & 2001- 2002 respectively when they had the chance to do it.

    Edit. I could be wrong but where was the complaints about seeing pictures when Hussein was killed under the Bush Administration?

    It's funny how so many people are concerned with upsetting the muslim world. Did they give a sh!t when Al Qaeda was kidnapping Americans ans showing videos of their heads being cut off with tree saws? Why should we be better than everyone else? All I hear is how we shouldn't be doing this or that because we aren't the rulers of the world and we are not better than everyone else, that is until something like this comes up. Then all you hear is how we are better than that.

    according to fox news, bin laden BEEN dead since 2001.

    www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,41576,00.html

    "yeah, lets not give any more reasons for Muslims to hate us" when invading, occupying, and staging political coups in their countries for oil for an half century isn't enough.

    don't drink the kool-aid "we have to better than the terrorists" or "the terrorists might be mad at us" bullcrap, Saddam Husein's hanging was on cnn, they can show bin laden's body...if their story actually happened.

    don't ever be gullible when it comes to an entity that is a known liar.

    Your right, this is BS. This is the shadiest presidency in my lifetime. Anyone who believes anything Obama and his regime say are morons.

    Edit: Look at all these answers parroting what the news and Obama's people are saying. There hasn't been one shred of proof that Obama is even dead. Show the picture already.

    Why would they want the Muslims to see a picture of Bin Laden with half his head blown off and his brains exposed? Don't they have any idea that the Muslim reaction all over the world would be massive riots, killings and terrorist attacks, for starters? Of course it would endanger our troops in the MIddle East. You would have to be ignorant not to understand that. I'm sure there will be plenty of other evidence released as proof of death.

    ""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," said the president.

    "We don't trot out this stuff as trophies," Mr. Obama added. "The fact of the matter is, this is somebody who was deserving of the justice that he received."

    "Imagine how the American people would react if Al Qaeda killed one of our troops or military leaders, and put photos of the body on the internet," Rogers continued. "Osama bin Laden is not a trophy - he is dead and let's now focus on continuing the fight until Al Qaida has been eliminated."

    "I've had it described to me and it does sound very gruesome," he said. "Remember, bin Laden was shot twice at close range, once in the chest and once in the head, right above his left eye, and that bullet opened his skull, exposing the brain, and it also blew out his eye. So these are not going to be pictures for the squeamish."
