President Obama has decided not to release any photos of Usama bin Laden's dead body, Fox News confirms, amid concern that doing so could inflame sentiment against U.S. troops.

The president revealed his decision during an interview with CBS News' "60 Minutes." A U.S. official confirmed to Fox News that Obama had decided against the release. The announcement follows a charged debate on whether the risk might outweigh the benefit if any images or video are released showing bin Laden after he was fatally shot by U.S. forces.

Details emerging about the image suggest that it is, as the White House claimed, "gruesome." Fox News has learned that the image shows a large, open gunshot wound on bin Laden's forehead, revealing brain matter. A senior U.S. official who has had access to the images said one of bin Laden's eyes is open while the other is "completely gone."

No photo = just another story.

Just another lie in the Obama saga. I can't wait until the election and we get this clown out of office.

Most "transparent" administration ever.

I believe OBL is dead, but really wanted to see the pics.
