The Real Reason Why Photos of Osama Bin Laden’s Body Haven’t Been Released Yet (8 Pics)

Did you ever wonder why the White House has not authorized the release of any pictures of Bin Laden’s body? Why didn’t they release photos of Public Enemy #1 to prove that he’s dead and show it to the world?

1. A Member of the SEAL Team Partially Explains the Reason


Matt Bissonnette, in his book No Easy Day, writes ”Another assaulter and I trained our lasers on his chest and fired several rounds. The bullets tore into him, slamming his body into the floor until he was motionless.”

2. Just a Polite Description


This is just a polite description that he could give of how operator after operator fired rounds of ammunition into Bin Laden’s body.

3. Over a Hundred Bullets


Two confidential sources within the community discovered that when it was all over, his body had over a hundred bullets in him.

4. The Laws of Land Warfare


Under the Laws of Land Warfare, a soldier is authorized to fire a few insurance rounds into his target. But, that only counts provided that the enemy is not surrendering.

5. An Act of Pure Self-Appeasement


That is morally, legally and ethically appropriate. But, what they did to Bin Laden is beyond excessive. It was pure self-appeasement.

6. An Ultimately Criminal Behavior


Now, you may not think it’s a bad thing that he got the more-than-extra bullets. But it should concern us that it’s a trend within certain special operations where units take themselves into this type of self-appeasement. It’s an ultimately criminal behavior and it will get worse in time if goes unpunished.

7. The Real Reason


Now you know the real reason why the pictures of his death haven’t been released. The picture itself would be an international scandal.

8. An Absurd Number


It would only show the mangled body with the absurd number of gunshot wounds.
