In explaining his choice not to release the photo, Mr. Obama said that "we don't need to spike the football." He said that "given the graphic nature of these photos it would create a national security risk."
Maybe it would, maybe it wouldn't. Personally, I have no need to see the photos. I already have a pretty good idea what they look like -- given how bin Laden was shot, there are probably small entry holes and he probably didn't have much left of the back of his head. Gruesome and not especially interesting, I say.
Do you really want to see these photos? And if so, why?
