U.S. Reacts To Death Of Osama Bin Laden

As more information comes out about the incredible operation that took out Osama Bin Laden this weekend, the debate tugs back and forth in the White House–should his death photo be released?

Some of the pros:  to reassure the public he is really dead.  Despite the DNA testing, and assurances from the military and multiple cross confirmations including Pakistani officials, some still doubt it’s really him.  It would also deal a significant blow to terrorists who “may be on the fence” about taking up arms against the US and other world nations.  The cons?  the gore factor. According to ABC  Senior correspondent/blogger Jake Tapper,  the photo(s) are gruesome as Bin Laden had a massive head wound above his left eye, with brains and blood visible.   No official word yet on which way the White House is leaning.
