Yes, I think that Obama should release the death photos of Osama Bin Laden to prove that he is dead. It's hard to believe anything that he says, because he never really tries to back it up. If he released the death photos of Osama Bin Laden, I think it would change a lot of people's views about him.
Prove to us that he is dead, and it is not just another hoax by the government. I think releasing photos of him dead would make us trust our government and our president a tad more.
So much hype has been given over the case of killing Osama Bin Laden. It is in bad taste to release photos, and it could insight additional and more extreme terrorist activities. Just because a key player is gone, it doesn't mean that the whole organization is gone. It is time to let it go. There is no need to see Bin Laden's dead body, especially if it goes against Muslim faith.
There is no good reason to release these photos. They are likely to be gory and will further inflame extremists. Those who do not believe that he is dead will only think that they are fakes. Nothing is to be gained by showing them. It would only serve to create problems, while solving none.
I do not think the photos of a dead Osama Bin Laden should be released since we don't need more grisly photos of dead people. Although such a photo could show he was dead, with current software technologies people would always suggest it was a doctored photo. A widely published picture of a dead person (whoever it is) is not necessary for children to see.
If the public views photos of Bin Laden, then they will just do so because they have a morbid curiosity. No one needs to see these photos, for any reason. We do not see photos of other dead people who died as a result of war. He needed to be killed, but we do not need to celebrate and view his dead body.
Releasing these photos would accomplish nothing but aggravate extremists to further conflict and who knows what. Those who deny bin Laden's death would only doubt the authenticity of the photos to no end.
