President Obama is increasingly doubtful that there's a compelling reason to release a photograph of Osama bin Laden's corpse, ABC News has learned.Could prompt a backlash? Hello! These people already hate us, have hated us for as long as I can remember and nothing we ever do will satisfy and placate them. If anything, seeing their hero in pieces might serve as a reminder that they'll also wind up like bin Laden.
There don't seem to be many skeptics of bin Laden's death in the Muslim world, with bin Laden's wife having survived the attack to identify bin Laden's death both to the Navy SEALs and Pakistani authorities.
Meanwhile, sources say, Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are advising the president about concerns at the Pentagon and State Department that releasing a photograph could prompt a backlash against the US for killing bin Laden where one does not seem to currently exist.
It's bad enough we've gotten about five different accounts already about what went down the other night. Be done with it and show us the photo.
