    ... I`ll give you a clue, it rhymes with `fonspiracy`

    I honestly couldn`t care less. It`s more respectful, and the only people who do give a $h!t are the people who want him out, with the whole "conspiracy" thing. I`m with paddy here. If you`re so desperate to see the picture of the guy, dead, there might be something more to it than "proof that he`s dead". Get over it, people.

    he is dead people, get over it. how easy do you think it would be to make obama and the entire ud gov looks like the biggest idiots on the planet if they said he was dead and he wasnt?

    all osama would have to do if appear in a vid with a current paper or release an audio tape taking about a reccent event.

    stop being complete morons for a minute and try to use the brain in your head...you will know when you are because it will hurt...alot.

    It`s what I would do. Wait for the inevitable asshats to come back out of the woodwork and make fools of themselves again (I`m looking at you Trump). And then release the photos and absolutely destroy them. It`s fighting dirty, but it`s no less than they deserve after birthirism. And Jaime76 is right. Osama is dead and I don`t care how, special forces or he just had a heart attack it doesn`t matter. He`s gone. They wouldn`t have gone through this horse and pony show if they weren`t sure he wouldn`t be able to release another video ever again.

    I do not care about evidence, I belive he is dead. I also think Obama should release the pics, remember all that talk about an open governement? How about FOIA? We have seen pics of our service men hung from bridges, or Daniel Pearl being beheaded live on video, but now a dead terrorist is too much to show?

    But we should be used to a President who waffles on his decisions constantly. At one time he was for releasing Abu Ghraib photos, then against. He was against war unless it was an immediate threat to America, then attacked libya. Closing Gitmo? First he was for it, then he is against it. Osama used a human shield and fought back, oh wait, no he didn`t.

    From the actual executive order, "will create a formal system of indefinite detention for those held at the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, who continue to pose a significant threat to national security"

    The afghani`s with the mortar`s already don`t want american`s in afghan. None were to appreciative of the fact Osama IS dead. You guys are all right, lets give them more reasons to set up IED`s and randomly take out coalition troops. I mean, as long as it serves your petty little wangs and allows you to say "America DOES piss on so and so group/religion/culture/ideology and I`m proud to be apart of it!" what`s another, say ten, US lives?

    No really, I love the idea of all these armchair generals explaining how to effectively run a military action. Tools.

    That would`ve required not killing him, and if there is one thing he would`ve been certain of, it was his life in american custody would`ve been immensely more painful than a quick death. I`m certain he had his finger on a trigger hoping to take a few americans with him the second before the seals realized this wasn`t going to be an extraction.

    Too funny, so blinded by partisan rhetoric that people just lap up whatever their leaders tell them.

    Terrorists will use THIS as fuel to attack America. Not the fact that we killed him, but a PICTURE of Osama dead will enrage them and get them to join terrorist organizations? Are you all really that dumb to believe that? THIS will be the thing that gets them all riled up?
    Do a photo search for dead war babies.
    Do a search for American support of Israel.
    Do a search for burned Koran.
    Do a search for civilian war dead Iraq or Afganistan.
    Amerian influence in Muslim countries.
    American bases in Muslim countires.
    America rich while others starve...
    Jihad decrees.
    American morals.
    America....yadda, yadda, yadda.

    But no. I am sure that THIS picture will be the thing that really gives them something to unite behind.

    phoneybone is correct, Eventually the real pictures will get leaked, likely the video as well.

    There are already statements being made that Obama was `overruled` by Panetta, The military chiefs, CIA and Hillary to enact the operation. Link

    If this is true it may explain why Obama wasn`t dressed well in the situation room, why he`s not actually seated at the table, and why he looks angry in that photo.

    I`m not saying that rumor is true, but it seems to have the `ring of truth`.

    I mean, think about it. What does that say about us? That we`re this mindless gore-culture, that we need to see the bloody remains for ourself...it`s disgusting and pretty much the epitome of what`s wrong with our news media feeding us tales of death, blood, and sorrow.

    If terrorists are going to attack, they`re going to attack. There`s not much we can do about it. We have no shortage of enemies.

    ...but why do we need to see it so badly? So that we can prove he`s dead? Photos don`t have that power anymore. Photoshop destroyed their legitimacy. At some point, we`re just going to have to accept what we`ve been told. If he pops up and says "LOL NO I`M NOT!" Then we`ll know better. And if he doesn`t, problem solved one way or another.

    I agree, why does everyone want to see a picture of someone shot in the head? That is not who we are and it will just be a slap in the face for those who are already pissed off at us- spiking the football as he put it. I`m glad he stuck to the moral and safe thing.

    BS. America is the land of porn and violence on TV and in movies. We glorify violence and death, fictional and real.

    This is just a hypocritical line that was drawn. Fake bodies...ok. Dead terrorists who are not Osama....ok. Daniel Pearl...ok. Osama....nah, we are above all that.

    Seriously. What kind of tasteless individuals are we that made Passion of Christ gross $370 Million domestic and Exorcist $232 Million? Do you really think that a real picture of a dead terrorist is any worse than shelling out hard cash to watch fake death on the big screen? Here is a hint, one is real and relevent, the other is only to amuse and excite us.

    I don`t think they were officially released by the White House, do you?

    Now getting leaked from someone who "shouldn`t have" posted them- thats a different story. And It will probably happen sooner or later.

    Obama will not release the photos out of "good taste".

    Untill it`s closer to the election and if his numbers need a booste the pics will be leaked just to remind us the he got him.

    I was just pointing out that we as Americans are not "above all this", but instead wallowing deep in the muck that a lot of hypocrites on here are decrying. People don`t say a thing about gore movies or news programs, but suddenly think that, "That is not who we are" when it comes to this picture. Just stop with your moralizing, it smacks of emotional dishonesty in this country.

    @Gerry That is exactly what I thought when I heard about this. It`s not like they alrwady don`t have an excuse.

    It`s not like a picture will delay or prevent will prevent a terrorist attack or an increase in terrorist aggression. T^hey already have their excuuses, their hate, their motivation.

    @david- exactly

    With that said, we`re talking about a terrorist organization. IT doesn`t matter whaat we do. They already have all tghe evidence they assume they need to justify their cause. Whetgher or notv thjey need more evidence against USA does not matter, due to their given attitude.

    just because america love blood and guts so much doesnt mean we cant see the pictures....its evidence. i think anyone deserves to see the truth. im not just going to sit around to believe what ever the government tell me. has nothing to do with being a sick individual and wanting to see the picture cause i enjoy them, no. more like if this was a court, they demand the proof just as much as in this situation. america is not a court room but we would be fools to let just the GOVERNMENT see those pictures. does anyone get that? people who say we are a "mindless gore culture" well, speak for your self.

    Anyone saying "we need proof" is wrong a million times over. Seeing the pictures won`t prove anything.

    I could photoshop you a picture of a dead Osama right now, if I wanted to. It would be easy. Or it could be a lookalike. It doesn`t matter--there is no proof in the picture.

    Anyone who claims there is just wants to see the picture for the sake of seeing it. Which is dumb.

    Do you think for even a moment that if Osama`s still alive he would sit there quietly while America gloats?

    "Oh, but now he got away with it! He can live quietly and escape!"

    No. This man has devoted his life to his acts of terror, and wants nothing more than to destroy Western influence. You think he can take a day job after that?

    If he`s alive, he`ll pop up just to say "F*ck you America, You STILL didn`t get me. I am untouchable."

    Yet he hasn`t, and he won`t. He`s gone.

    Maybe he is alive.
    Maybe they captured him.
    Maybe they said he`s dead so al quida doesn`t take US hostages to exchange for him.

    maybe he`s alive, in a hole where he will never see the light of day and is as-good-as-dead.

    Does it matter? He`s out of the "picture" .... swidt?

    There`s a new drink that you can order at a bar. It`s called the Osama Bin Laden. 2 Shots and a splash of sea water.
