I just heard that the US government have decided not to release the photograph of Bin Laden's body, the reasoning being that it would be too inflammatory.I'm sure this will only fan the flame for the conspiracy theorists out there who think the whole thing is some kind of hoax or lie.
To be honest, I'd like to see a photo. But probably more out of morbid fascination than for needing to see proof. And I don't think I should necessarily be granted that, so I'm okay about some sort of authority deciding whether or not I get to.
I'm sure motives will be questioned, but for the sake of safety, and for not wanting to wave the picture in front of the noses of his followers, who frankly are probably as dangerous as he was, I'm okay with that.
What I'd like to happen, is that a whole bunch of leaders from around the world go to some private viewing of the pictures, and then statements are made to confirm it. I'd be satisfied with that.
What do you think?
