re: Bin Laden Killed

I just watched a Leon Panetta on PBS with Jim Lehrer and he asked if bin Laden had any last words for the SEALS...Panetta responded, quite frankly I don't think he had the opportunity. It all went down so fast once they located him.

People are always going to doubt that he really died. A photo isnt gonna help. I honestly think it will hurt a little because it gives people something to pick at. Be like the SEALS, do your job, leave nothing, turn down any praise.
Well said.

As much as I personally would like to see a photo, I'm not sure how much good would come out of publishing it for the world to see. I mean, I guess it would be an exclamation point at the end of a "don't f*ck with the USA" moment. But honestly, only conspiracy theorists and extremist muslim propagandists are preaching that he's still alive. Scores of anti-western muslim populations are marching in the streets because of his death. Pretty sure the vast majority of earth knows damn well we got that SOB.

re: Bin Laden Killed

The whole world knew what the U.S. goal was with respect to Osama. The people who follow him also knew this day was coming and I doubt a photo of him dead will sway their opinion of us in any direction. These people are plotting to kill Americans all the time and I highly doubt there will be an increase, just that their timetable might move up. Some worry about the causal/proxy Osama fan picking up arms...I don't see how these people would get motivated by his death but not his hundreds of call-to-arm videos.


The world needs to see the consequence of Osama's actions are. Release the photos and let the chips fall where they may.

I saw last night that the seal teams came from Va. Beach and I have several of them insure but not sure if it was their units. One of their trainers have a cottage at Nags Head just down from us and hangs out on the beach with us and I can't wait to ask him a few questions.
If they're not in DEVGRU they weren't involved?

re: Bin Laden Killed

We don't need photos. Even if the photos are released there will still be conspiracy folks who say they were photoshopped. As saden said, those who hate us will still hate and any non-extremeists aren't taking up arms over his death.

Let's move on with the intel gathered and kill/disrupt as much of the rest of the Al qaeda beast as quickly as possible.

It was my impression that Seal Team Six aka DEVGRU was the team responsible for the op. Seal Team Six = WINNING.
