No Release of Bin Laden's Death Photos

Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy



Do you think Osama Bin Laden's death photos should be released? Why or why not? Some are now questioning the legality of Bin Laden's killing. One international lawyer stated "It may not have been possible to take him alive, but no one should be outside the protection of the law. Even after the end of the second world war, Nazi war criminals were given a fair trial." How would you respond to those questioning whether or not Bin Laden's killing was legal?

I agree with the President’s decision not to release the bin Laden photos. I believe that he was killed. Besides, any photo shown has the potential of upsetting others and may incite others to violence against Americans. Any photo shown will cause those who believe that bin Laden is still alive to claim that they were “photoshopped.”

Actions that probably originated with bin Laden are responsible for not only the deaths of 9/11 but also the attack on the USS Cole in 2000. Bin Laden certainly fits the profile of an enemy combatant. In my opinion killing him is perfectly legal! Why should he have the forum of a jail cell or court to spew his hatred of Americans?

I think that the photos should be released mainly to silence people that do not believe that he was shot and killed. Also, people are curious and want to see Bin Laden's death pictures. I do believe he is dead because faking or claiming his death would be too big of a lie to confront the world with.

Lauren...I think that the death photos not being released is sort of sketchy. Why would they not show them to the public? However, I do believe that bin Laden is dead. I am curious to see the pictures myself. They should be released in order to show the public that the incident is actually real. The government would not fake something this big.

LaKendra... I don't think that Bin Laden's pictures should be released. No one should ever have pictures of thier body exposed after their death. The release of those photos could trigger a reaction on some people. Those reactions could be very positive or very negative. I'm not sure how I feel about weather the killing of Bin Laden is leagal or not.

Ashley says... I agree with the president to not release the photos. I am sure the photos are not good for all people to see. I believe that he is killed but some people want proof. It migth hurt some people to see the photos and it will disturb many people. People need to trust the officals decision. We don't need to see what the americans had to do, to get the job done! I trust in our Navy and I know they got it done. I donn't get why they would lie in the first place. They can't cover up that lie with the whole world! He killed so may americans and other people I think we have the legal right to kill since he broke law and killed everyone else!

Robbie says... I am glad that he is dead. He did alot of bad things to inisent people. What he did on 9/11 was wrong, he had no reason to do that. So I think he deserved to die.

Personaly, as me not ever hearing of this guy. I don't really have an opinion on what should have happened to him.

Sheron says…I believe Osama bin laden passed his work to someone else to accomplish and just because he’s dead, if he’s dead I don’t think it’s over. Also the fact that we’ve been waiting to capture him for a decade and now that he’s dead we can’t see for ourselves, we’re just suppose to take their(Government)word for it.

Kristin says... Personally I wouldn't want to see his death photos. I wasn't there so I can't say if his killing was legal or not. If I was in that situation I wouldn't want to put myself in danger just to try to take him alive. Even given a fair trial the outcome would have been the same, he'd still end up dead.

Chris says… I think that they should not release the photos of Osama Bin Laden even thought I would like to see them I’m sure it would probably start an act of violence if they where released. I’m sure if someone overseas killed are president and was flashing pictures everywhere we probably would want to retaliate and start war. Although it would be good to show the pictures so that we can have proof that he is dead, but since they say he is dead I’m sure that there will be violence coming are way and we just have to watch out.

Destiny saids...NO because I think we have enough info that he is dea d. I think the people are asking for to much or they are just been nosey. Or maybe they just want more proof of his death.

I think they should be released. Actually, I think all of it was set up, whether it is released or not, I think Obama set it all up so he can be re-elected in 2012. I think it was pretty suspicious that they buried his body at sea right away. It's some bull.

I want to see the photos. I am glad Osama is dead, what he got was too good for him. It made me angry that he was given his rights as a Muslim during hid burial. His death was legal. He is a war criminal and that justifies his death.

Obama was not the one who made the decision so please do not put the blame on him. He has like 600 advisors that tell him what to do when no one's looking. As a matter of fact, at least 90% of the words that come out of his mouth were written by someone else. In other words, the president is just a face; he doesn't do anything other than read what people tell him to. THE GOVERNMENT IS A LYING DOUSCHE!!!! Though I can understand that releasing the picture could spark some serious aggression, not releasing the picture will have the same impact, just from a different direction. Either way we're screwed!

I think they should be released becaise some people feel like he is still alive and still are not convensed he is dead. I feel liek he shot was legal because the whole thing was open fire and i know if there is open fire we have the right to shoot back. However he did way more damage to us back then so i feel what happend to him was well deserved.

It really doesn't matter to me if they do or don't. I mean he do deserve what he got because of what he did to us. Why now everybody wanna question what happen when at first they wanted him dead.

I think that them not releasing the photos is good, but it seems sketchy. I wouldn't want to seem them but other people do just to see that he was killed. I can't say if the killing was legal or not becuae I wasn't there. If he was given a fair trial he would still end up dead, because he done so much horrible things in the country. I thik he deserved what he got.
