US Senator Jim Inhofe said today he had no doubt Osama bin Laden was dead after viewing pictures of the terror leader’s body.
The CIA has begun showing the photographs to some US lawmakers after President Barack Obama said they were too gruesome to be released to the public.
Mr Inhofe, a Republican, said he was shown 15 photographs taken after Bin Laden was killed on May 2 in a US commando raid.
There are 12 photos from the Pakistani compound and three from the ship where they buried him at sea.
“Yeah, they are gruesome because they were taken right after the incident,” Mr Inhofe said on FOX News.
“I couldn’t tell whether the bullet went through the ear and out the eye cavity or through the eye and out the ear because a lot of brains were draped out from the socket. But it clearly – what we saw there was it was him. There’s no question it was him.”

I have no doubt that the pictures of a claimed dead Bin Laden must display the ugly face of war.
But I do not buy the explanation, why this is a valid reason not to publish them.
Today, the White House would not have published any pictures from Hiroshima. If they could block the publishing of such pictures.
Pictures of the Holocaust would also, only, have been shown to come few selected US Senators, to avoid the World being alarmed.
Do anyone still buy the White House version of the death of Bin Laden?
It is true that the US has spent 2 trillion USD to get Bin Laden, and we all understand that Obama would like to keep the truth about him for his selected people. But the US spent some money to blow up Hiroshima too, and we were all able to see the damage done.
The Holocaust was also a costly affair. A whole new Industry in Germany was built to exterminate six million Jews. And few people had any objections.
If you have forgotten, let these pictures remind you:
The pictures of the Holocaust has been seen all over the World. And should be shown in all Schools all over the Planet.
Barack Hussein Obama must learn from the past. I wounder if he will deny the Holocaust on the next press briefing in Washington?
