White House vs. CIA: Death Photos Or Not?
Yesterday, CIA Director Leon Panetta said the US WILL release the death photos of Osama bin Laden. However, the latest report from Fox News says, hold on.
Panetta said yesterday “ultimately…no question a photo would be presented to the public”. He made these remarks to NBC. However, today, Fox News Digital News reporters are saying the White House will not release them. Again, the big issue they seem to be grappling with is while it would reinforce that bin Laden is gone, and perhaps send a stern warning to other terrorists that the US will pursue them regardless of the time it takes, the shock factor of the damage done to his body would no doubt offend many people. So, we wait while the “they will-they won’t” game continues.
