Photos!? We Don't Need No Stinkin'....

I'm with Mr. Gourevitch on this.  There is no purpose on releasing any photos of the dead Osama bin Laden.  Proof of his demise?  Photos would be no proof as evidenced by the fake photos that came out a nano-second after the raid was announced.  It's too easy to fake a photo these days.

We aren't living back in the 1800's "Wild" West when photos of outlaws were regularly published as proof of the romantic outlaws' comeupance.  bin Laden's gone; that chapter's closed.  Terrorism is not gone; why provide the fuel for any furtherance of bin Laden's legacy?

Burial at sea, IMHO, was a brilliant stroke of thinking.  The whole operation was brilliantly conceived and implemented down to the ability of the secret (and may they remain so!) Seals in dealing with the logistics problems encountered.  The irritation of the pebble in our shoes has been removed.  Let's just walk on.
