Looks like the White House may release at least one photo of dead bin Laden and perhaps more pics and video of the raid.
“We are looking at releasing additional information, details about the raid as well as any other types of material, possibly including photos. We want to understand exactly what the possible reaction might be to the release of this information,” said White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan on “Good Morning America.”
Also up for consideration is the release of video from the “helmet cams” of the Navy SEALS who went after bin Laden. The SEALS captured the mission on tape by wearing helmet cameras.
“Any types of material related to the raid, we need to make sure that we make the right decisions. What we don’t want to do is to compromise potential future operations by releasing certain things, so we’re looking at all of this and making the right decisions,” Brennan said.
As I said yesterday about the tired old concerns that photos/video might “enflame” the Muslim world, when is it not enflamed?
