In a 60 Minutes interview that will air this weekend, Obama had this to say about the release of the Osama bin Laden photos:
“The risks of release outweigh the benefits,” he said. “Conspiracy theorists around the world will just claim the photos are doctored anyway, and there is a real risk that releasing the photos will only serve to inflame public opinion in the Middle East.”
“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,” he 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.”
Oh REALLY!!! Like THESE?
What a joke. Just publish the damn photos! You owe at least that.
