Obama says US won't release photographic evidence of Osama bin Laden’s death




US President Barack Obama decided NOT to release photographic evidence of Osama bin Laden’s death, saying the U.S. shouldn’t exploit such images as “trophies.”


Obama’s decision ended a debate within his administration over whether to release photos taken after bin Laden was killed during a raid by U.S. special operations forces on his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.






Obama told  the steps taken by the U.S. leave “no doubt” that it was bin Laden, and releasing the images could serve as a propaganda tool while not helping to sway the opinion of people who don’t believe the al-Qaeda leader is dead.
