    Default Pictures of dead terrorists at Bin Laden compound

    Apparently Reuters had the pictures up (I saw one - a snapshot of a guys head laying in a pool of blood), but now they're down. Anyone else see this or know what I'm talking about?

    It seems to work now, at least that one pic. Beware, very graphic...

    Now that one photo is released of the dead, in almost the same fashion that Bin Laden was killed, I don't see a reason to withhold Bin Laden's death photo.

    Here are a couple more. Again, very graphic.

    I guess Reuters took them down, but others have posted them.

    Bin Laden photos are being kept from the public because the images could be insulting to those who followed his idealogies; the last thing the government wants to do is piss off thousands of people in the middle east who respected Osama.

    Although in terms of gore content, I thought that those pictures you posted were fairly mild, but then again I'm a bit of bloodthirsty gore loving guy myself.

    yep^ Although they've already pissed off all the sheep when they killed the shepherd, releasing the pic of OBL just makes it look like America is rubbing its balls in the face of certain [mujahideen/Palestinian/al qaeda] members and sympathizers.

    and they look so peaceful

    I don't understand why people want to see the pictures. I understand curiosity (I looked, too), but the people who are rabid for it just... disturb me.
    I got my smile from the sunshine,
    I got my tears from the rain.
    I learned to dance when I saw a tiger prance,
    And a peacock taught me to be vain.
    A little owl in a tree so high,
    He taught me how to wink my eye.
    I learned to bill and coo from a turtledove,
    And a grizzly bear taught me how to hug.
    But the guy that lived two caves from me,
    He taught me how to love.

    I've seen worse death pictures than that. I mean, really. I think the reason why they're out there is because the people want proof "I won't believe it til I see it." I heard this voiced amongst my roommates the other night.

    I think they want some concrete proof that he's dead, mostly.

    Yes, but photos are not concrete proof.
