The Osama Death Photo

Rate this Entry
The nation is divided over the Osama death pic. I’m sure eventually someone will come out with some inaccurate percentage of how many are in favor vs. how many are horrified. The real interesting numbers would be to see how many people who called Julian Assange a traitor for releasing documents, are now saying “It’s our right to see them!” vs. How many are saying “No, way I’m afraid I’ll be tempted to look”. Fact is, this is another great example of people wanting the government to take care of them, instead of taking responsibility and just not looking if they don’t want to see them. I have heard several people say “They had no problem showing us people jumping from the Twin Towers, why won’t they show us these?” The main excuse? Too gruesome. The White House Press Secretary Jay Carney says “There are sensitivities here in terms of the appropriateness of releasing photographs of Osama bin Laden in the aftermath of this firefight and we’re making an evaluation about the need to do that because of the sensitivities involved.”
