Obama Says He Will Not Release bin Laden Body Photos

So President Obama has said the pictures of Osama bin Laden's dead corpse will not be released for fear that doing so will make the dead body seem like a "trophy" therefore inciting violence.
It's a hard call. The other side of argument is that the entire point of doing a ground operation like we did, risking the SEALs lives, was to get the indisputible proof that 'Homeless Santa' is indeed dead.
It gives the conspiracy theorists and those loyal to Osama room to wonder whether or not the raid and his death is just a hoax.
But overall, I tend to agree with the President's call. Releasing such graphic photos might only hurt our relations with other countries further and would probably anger people who think we are gloating/taunting.
The proof that Osama has been killed will come when no one hears from him or sees him walking around. Eventually, the truth will come out without us pissing off people by releasing the photos.
Good call, Prez.
