AP Demands Obama Release Osama Death Pictures

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

Warrior Obama’s decision to withhold the pictures of Osama bin Laden’s dead body has created a schism between the White House and one of the largest journalism organizations in the world: the Associated Press.

The Atlantic Wire reports:

Last Monday, the AP filed a Freedom of Information Act request for the photographic and video evidence taken during the raid on bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.  The organization’s FOIA request included a reminder of the president’s campaign pledge and a plea to be more transparent than his predecessor. “The Obama White House ‘pledged to be the most transparent government in U.S. history,” wrote the AP,  “and to comply much more closely with the Freedom of Information Act than the Bush administration did.'”

Michael Oreskes, senior managing editor at The Associated Press joins a growing list of government, old media and new media people, demanding Warrior Obama release the pictures.

Some of them include: Sens. Lindsey Graham, Susan Collins, Rep. Peter King, the Wall Street Journal’s Peggy Noonan, Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and the NYFD Union. I am also on record saying the release of the photos will help put to rest some of the more incredulous conspiracy theories surrounding Osama bin Laden’s death.

    The conspiracy theories are coming fast and furious and it’s Obama fault for allowing this thing to get out of control.

    His parochial approach to leadership is offensive to me. I’ve contributed to the $3 trillion we were forced to spend to kill Bin Laden. At very least I want to enjoy the images of his head shattered open like a bloody watermelon. You know, Americans have gotten soft around the middle. Bin Laden is responsible for the deaths of nearly 3,000 innocent people on 9/11. It’s OK to gloat a little.

  2. Peace Nick says:

    By playing God with the photos of Osama’s corpse, President Obama gave a pass to the real kooks like Fox Business News host Andrew Napolitano who allegedly said on TV that the White House is “pulling a fast one to save Obama’s lousy presidency.”

    All of this would be put to rest by releasing the photos.

    And for what reason, incite more violence and put more Americans in harms way? Release the dna information, and facial recongnition results instead, photos can be doctored but science is “unrefutiateable”. There are more pressing conspiracy theories that somehow get a free pass in the msn.

  4. And for what reason, incite more violence and put more Americans in harms way?

    If you’re so worried about Americans in harms way, try pressuring the nitwit in the White House to listen to the Iraqis and the Afghans who overwhelmingly don’t want U.S. troops in their countries and redeploy the troops out of where they’re not welcome.

    The photos should be released. By not releasing them, it just makes Obama look like he has something to hide and gives fodder to the conspiracy crowd. I hope the AP prevails with their FOIA suit.

  6. Idaho Librul says:

    We’ve seen much worse. I’m old enough to remember the nightly news footage out of Vietnam and much of it was absolutely ghastly.

    I read someone said Obama’s decision to not release the pictures is parochial. I couldn’t have said it better myself. Father Obama, father of a nation. Puke.

    Release the pictures. I believe by releasing them, it will telegraph a powerful message to anyone who dares to harm America.
