Personally, I think they're hiding the photos because they would prove that Bin Laden was killed in cold blood with no regard for rules of war. What
if he was completely un-armed, and the soldiers shot him multiple times anyway, once through the face? That would not be a picture that would boost
Obama's numbers. It would severely degrade his public image, as someone who supports crimes against our enemies. Then, the enemies would take the
image as proof that the US is absolute evil, willing to brutally mutilate their foes by sneaking into their house and blowing them away.
There is no way that releasing the photos would end well, politically. Not until Obama is out of office or well into his second term (if it happens).
Then, he may get tried for war crimes.
