The Republican chairman of the House Intelligence panel opposes releasing photos of Osama bin Laden's body.
In a statement, Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) said releasing the photos would endanger American troops in Afghanistan and Iraq.
“I don’t want to make the job of our troops serving in places like Iraq and Afghanistan any harder than it already is. The risks of release outweigh the benefits," Rogers said in a statement. "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."
"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," Rogers continued.

Osama needed to be killed. Americans are in no more danger now than they were before this past Sunday.
