White House Describes Osama Death Photos

UPDATE: Obama decided not to release Osama’s death photos, citing his reason as not wanting to “inflame” Muslims’ ire. But a White House insider went behind his back and snuck the photos to Reuters.
From CNN article by its “White House Senior Supervising Producer” Stacia Deshishku this morning, May 3, 2011:

A Senior US Official tells CNN 10 hard drives, 5 computers and more than 100 storage devices which includes discs, DVDs and thumb drives were taken from the compound.

The senior us official also says the White House received 3 sets of photos yesterday. The photos included:

1. Photos of OBLs body at a hangar after he was brought back to Afghanistan. This is the most recognizable with a clear picture of his face. The picture is gruesome because he has a massive open head wound across both eyes. It’s very bloody and gory.

2. Photos from the burial at sea on the USS Carl Vinson. Photos of OBL before the shroud was put on and then wrapped in the shroud.

3. There are photos of the raid itself that include photos of the two dead brothers, one of OBLs dead son (adult adolescent, maybe approx 18 yrs old) and some of the inside scene of the compound.

The official says the challenge is that the picture that includes the most recognizable image of OBLs face – from the hangar in Afghanistan – is so gruesome and mangled it’s not appropriate for say the front page of the newspaper. On the other hand, this is the one that is most identifiable as him.

Meanwhile, we wait and wait and wait, while the Political Ruling Class debate the pros and cons of releasing the photos:

PANETTA: PHOTO COMING...
GATES, CLINTON: 'NO'...
CARNEY: Release 'could be inflammatory'...
Muslim 'sensitivities' trump transparency?
Should news organizations publish?

Boehner: I Don't Need to See It...

Sen. Brown: 'I've seen the picture'...
Sen. Ayotte: Me too....

UPDATE (5/5/11): Judicial Watch has filed a FOIA request for the Osama raid photos and video. The Defense Department has 20 days to legally respond.

for some reason i’m having a difficult time believing a. bin laden wasn’t already dead. b. this is a great big bit of deception created by obama. c. the way obama has been acting you would think he jumped out of the plane with the seal team and led them into the compound. have we ever had a man in the white house that is so absolutely so full of himself? i just recently so the movie “dinner for schmucks” and i am totally surprised that obama did not make a cameo appearance as one of the schmucks…

Sure is an awful lot happening very fast with this whole thing. The info I heard on the radio this morning,normally would not have came out for many years, in a case like this.

Logic tells me that if this were really true, any administration would want to display the pictures to the world, instead of getting rid of the body at sea at once!

And since when have they been ably to get accurate DNA results in less than 24 hours?
This whole thing is beginning to reek of shiny green fly orbited steaming BS.
And the sad thing is, very few are questioning any of it.
But what can you expect from the American sheeple, as they sat on their asses and watched as Obama stole $1 Trillion from them, gave it to his cronies, and they raised nary a whimper.

This admin can’t keep their stories straight about OBL’s death. Don’t know if I’d even be satisified with a picture from them. Don’t trust em.
