Perhaps they have an instinctive sense of self preservation. Afterall there have already been many threats against Obama and vows of retaliation. I don't think I would want to be anywhere in public with him for quite a while.

Can someone tell me where this "too graphic" stuff is originating from? Literally every comment I've seen from Obama on the matter has been "we don't want to release pictures, because we'll run the risk of provoking attacks."

This has nothing to do with sensitivity, at least not from the standpoint of whether or not Americans are capable of handling graphic images. It has everything to do with not wanting to provoke attacks (hence the "we don't want to flaunt him like a trophy" comments).


They released the photos of the other muslims (look like head shot kills to me)

Quite graphic (for the general public)

Sorry dude, but I have to disagree with your comment on putting a warning on the video and making it black and white.

I think it would infuse a little bit of compassion for our fellow man if we were not shielded from the horrors of war.
In fact, the whole war should have been filmed in Hi-Def.

Maybe if ppl could see what a man looks like when he wonders around in shock carrying his arm in his hand. Or someones head suddenly burst into a red gray mist from a long range gun shot, or an innocent mother and father try to flee the battle field while carrying their mangled corpse that was their child.

Maybe then ppl would see what the carnage of war is really like and be more eager and willing to help than to kill indiscriminately.

You have to admit what we see on TV is a god dam theatrical joke!
Society has turned into a bunch of pussies! We need a warning on everything or god forbid we will get offended.

Ok, so maybe I have more to say about war in general than I do about the Osama video. For that I am sorry.
But the same applies to the video, show it in all it's color. Let us see it and decide for ourselves if it's real or not.

"But if perchance he were to be captured, I think the approach was to take him quickly to Bagram [Airfield, in Afghanistan], transfer him to a ship offshore, and then have the principals at the White House decide what next steps would be taken."-Leon Panetta An interesting quote to me,I have heard about a Principals Committee over these past few years that really runs the White House and was actually in charge on 9/11.As for the photos Obama's handlers will use them during the election if things don't go their way and TPTB appoints someone else as President.

no one would believe evidence even if it WAS presented, so the administration is currently wielding a double-edged sword with this one.


i would agree there would always be people who are never satisfied, however i believe alot more people will now question this compared to before because of the simple fact they will not show evidence when they simply could.
we have all seen the footage of them watching the footage, so yes there were camera's there. they acknowledge they have photo's otherwise there would be nothing not to release.

it cannot show anything that i have not already seen when looking at the history of world war two, there are plenty of pictures of dead bodies that also died in a firefight funnily enough already plastered all over the web.

if osama's death means that terrorists are angered then why even mention the storey? why not just kill him and then not report it? why put people at risk? there must be a reason they wanted to tell us, don't expect everyone to just believe it without proof. if your going to tell somebody something without proof expect them to be sceptical, especially if you have gone out of your way to get rid of the evidence.

Anyone who wants to see them will see them in all good time. Surely a freedom of information act will be filed if it hasn't been done already. Obama made the right call. It would cause quite a stir in the extremist world if we had paraded them out like Barnum and Bailey. Besides, I'm enjoying the conspiratorial rantings.

Since the photos won't be release, and since Assange happens to be tied up, maybe this will do for now.

i am not saying it should be black and white, i am saying if it bothers THEM at least show it in black and white, some kind of proof is better than none.

they kinda put them selves in a whole by releasing those "kill team" pictures a while back. I saw a photo of a man's face, no scull, lying on the ground being poked by a stick...
I don't think any "kill" photos could be more gruesome than that...

... so yeah, they're fake.

Imagine how the American people would react if Al Qaida killed one of our troops or military leaders, and put photos of the body on the internet. 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."

He specifically mentioned that conspiracy theorists will claim they are doctored anyway. That tells me he is scared and they couldn't photoshop a believable picture..haha epic fail WH

Nice beliefs you have about the OBL death BUT you need to look at every other aspect of this staged event. Learn what the date he was killed means to the Elite. Learn what the dates April 26 until May 1 means.

The rabbithole is so much deeper than most of us can imagine. I would love to belief the lies from the government but once you catch them in one lie how in the Heck can you ever believe anything they say. They have lied about every False Flag event in history. Please think about all events that have been confirmed False Flags.

Gulf of Tonkin, MLK, JFK, JFK jr. 911, Londen subway bombing,

The Elite use certain dates to do their dirty work. Please research.

Nope, the only epic fail going on is right here on ATS. As usual.

If they released the pictures, everyone would be up in arms about how callous Obama is, how horrible it was for them to shoot this poor, unarmed man. How the pictures are doctored, fake, false, and it's all some sort of cruel trick the US is playing on the "dumb" people in this world. Except for all the smart ones on ATS.

If they don't release them, Obama is covering something up. OBL is still alive!

Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

I for one don't care. Unlike 99% of the people on ATS, I've seen the hard side of live and combat casualities. I really don't need or want to see any more.

I think most here want to see them because it gives them a little chubby. Pathetic.

Those photos of the 3 dead men show lots of blood and the articles describing the photos say that the men were shot in the head.

The strange thing is that these 3 men's faces are NOT disfigured in any way. Any relative or friend looking at the photos could easily indentify them. But yet, our government leaders say that the photo of Bin Laden show a very disfigured face from the same type of bullets that killed the men shown in the three photos?

This entire story/saga is sounding more fishy every day. I'm starting to believe that Osama Bin Laden WAS captured alive and is being interrogated in an undisclosed location. He will be killed and buried at sea eventually, but right now, he has a lot of forced confessions to make as the CIA and NSA pours over the computer files.

By the way, the media is reporting that Bin Laden had $800 and 2 telephone numbers "sewn into" the garment he was wearing. Is it possible that the guy wore the same attire every day...for years? Well..maybe with so much time on his hands, he could have sewn these items into whatever he planned on wearing the next day? Another strange twist to this Bin Laden story..

-cwm

BTW.. I'm DELIGHTED that media didn't get what they wanted. (the alleged photos). They're like spoiled brats with over-inflated egos who deserve to be told "No!" for once.

I know what you mean. In the end I think we agree we want to see the photo. We can see gruesome photo's of other men that died in the raid, but not Osama. I really feel that we got him, but I honestly see where the president is coming from when he says why it isn't released. At the same time, I know terrorist's and islamic groups will protest anyways if they believe he is dead, and will probably try to carry out attacks either way. All I know for sure is the raid went down. Whether or not we got Osama, there is no proof yet so I know where your coming from because like I said, a little bit of me is still skeptical.

no it would prove they are telling the truth, it would lessen the amount of people questioning it.
it would prove the claim wrong about osama dieing in 2002 or whenever and being put on ice.
it would prove alex jones is wrong about what he is claiming.
i think showing it would be more devastating to conspiracy theories than not showing it.
by not showing it, it just adds more fuel to conspiracy theories and more weight to peoples claims like alex jones etc.

That's because we didn't kill the right guy and good ol' Bama doesn't want to admit it. That bastard is no hero.

They should hand the photos and videos over to Assange, I'm sure wikileaks wouldn't have a problem releasing them... plus wikileaks can take all of the heat too. At least the public will get the evidence they're clamoring for.
