Is Suing obama administration to release OBL photos. What's your thoughts?? IMO, are people who don't believe really going to believe? There's photos, and video of the moon landing and people still say it was faked. Also, by releasing these photos, do you feel we are no better then the terrorists who release videos of beheading Americans, and then we scream, no morals, low values... Are we no better if we release these photos? The group is using the freedom of information act saying that Obama is not above the law.

  • Playing politics again, no better than the birthers. These are probably the same people who cried ' treason ' about Julian Assange and Wikileaks . So much for freedom of information .

    Lori , you are out of your mind to accuse liberals of not believing the holocaust, the moon landing and that Al Quiada caused 9/11 . Where did you get such ridiculous ideas from ? The boot is on the other foot . Conspiracy theorists are more a feature of the right=-wing than the left , well featured on Fox news and at times propagated by that well-known liberal , Glen Beck .

  • I think at the least that any of the 911 family suvivors that wish to see the photos should be able to.

  • Oh and my opinion on the other is that Nick Berg was an innocent victim..Osama was not..which imo is a huge difference not to mention these are just photos not a video of him being shot..which would also be alot less gruesome then slicing off a head.

  • Looking at it academically, it's justifiable to say they should release them in the name of transparency. Looking at it in terms of reality, it's horribly voyeuristic and unnecessary. There's a reason we no longer allow death shots in crime scene imagery for photojournalism. This is no different. Comparing it to the release of the beheading video is a stretch. They wouldn't be released to brag, mailed to the media with threats against other nations. If the videos had been siezed in a raid and released, the entire tone surrounding the event would've been different.

  • I don't know what is right or wrong in this case.

    Historically, the heads of enemies such as BL were put on a pike and paraded for people to SEE, so they knew that the person that caused so much harm was truly dead and wouldn't cause further harm to anyone. I'm not sure that was such a bad thing.

  • The only people that DON'T believe 9/11 was an act of terrorism by Al-Quaida, the moon landings were real, the Holocaust actually happened, etc., are wacky LIBERALS!!

    Why is it when a conservative group asks to see documents/evidence/photographs as per FOIA, LIBERALS find it crazy, offensive, or ridiculous to the point of branding conservatives in a negative light?! What's wrong with the concept of "seeing is believing?" My observation applies to MANY different topics, that conservatives have consistently and intelligently questioned, but liberals accept at face value!

  • There is nothing immoral or wrong about showing a picture of a dead guy. It's not going to cause anything the killing itself might cause first. If you don't want to see it then don't look if they end up showing it.

  • I don't need to see them. I think that the seals and their methods need to be protected. I would like to see the picture just before he was shot. Do you think he realized it was over and went with the conviction of principles he wanted us to believe he had?

  • The pics shoild've been shown a long time ago. And yes his head should've been on a pike. Old school style. Our politicians are becoming spineless wimps.
