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

"The risks of release outweigh the benefits. 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 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."
