President Barack Obama decided on Wednesday not to publish pictures of the killed Osama bin Laden.
Obama released the news about the pictures in an interview on CBS 60 Minutes to be broadcast on Sunday evening. Today, White House press secretary Jay Carney explained the decision at length.
It is a completely correct decision, I believe. Bin Laden is dead. There is no doubt about that. The photos are not needed to prove this. And for those who do not believe that bin Laden is dead, photos of his dead body would not change their minds. They will continue to believe that he is alive and that the United States is lying, which is what has happened after Obama released his birth certificate recently. The members of “birther” movement still do not believe in him or that the certificate is genuine. No evidence is enough, for some.
