And yet the actual announcement of his death was down with Hollywood style fanfare and suspense..
If they didn't want to rile up the muslims then why did they even need to tell us they got OBL ??

If they won't release the pics...and knowing how the Gov lies on a daily basis.....Osama is alive.
No Proof = He is alive.
Then why do I keep seeing BC threads pop up everyday?

I don't agree with Obama's decision, but I totally and completely understand and accept it.
Let the "deather" conspiracy begin!

Besides, don't you think that releasing pictures would reduce the suspicion?
Based on the above FACT. I absolutely understand why Obama decided not to release the pictures. Along with the concern that some people in the world, who are already upset at this action, would see it as "bragging" and give them more ammunition to inflame their followers.
The pictures of the al Qaeda leader reportedly show an open gun shot wound to his head, part of the skull missing and visible brain matter.
One of bin Laden's eyes is reportedly open in the images, while the other is "completely gone".
