The big news right now is whether or not to release the gruesome photograph of Osama Bin Laden with a bullet hole in his forehead. Many Americans seem to think it will make us feel better if we see him mutilated a little since his plan mutilated so many on 9-11, and there are radical Muslims who are saying Bin Laden is still hiding out there someplace and the US is lying. On the other hand, there are those who believe such a humiliating photo would incite retaliation from radical militants around the world, making us look even more like bullies, since Bin Laden was confirmed unarmed when he was killed.

This is an awesome opportunity for us Americans to reflect on our values. After World War 2, the US and our allies pumped millions of dollars into Germany and Japan to rebuild the infrastructure of those nations, until they both became major competitors in the world marketplace. That’s the way Americans do things. When we go to war, we destroy our enemy. When we make peace, we bless our enemy.

What do you think the US government should do with those photographs of Osama Bin Laden, and why?

I believe that if those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001 want to see the pictures as proof of his death, then I believe they should be allowed to see them. I don’t think putting the pictures on the internet or any other form of mass media is a good idea, but if the people who were directly affected by bin Laden’s actions need closure, then they should be allowed to view those pictures.

Burn em. DNA evidence is more reliable now than a photograph. Al Qaida has already released a confirmation that Bin Laden is dead as well as DNA evidence confirmation. We need nothing more except for his name to shrink into obscurity.
