U.S. Senator Nelson says public should eventually see pictures of slain Osama bin Laden

By on May 12th, 2011

U.S. Democratic Senator from Florida Bill Nelson says photos of slain Osama bin Laden should eventually become part of the public record. Senator Nelson today reviewed the still-classified photographs showing the deadly wounds inflicted by Navy SEALS during their mission eleven days ago. Nelson is a senior member of the Senate Intelligence Committee. He viewed several of the photos at the headquarters of the Central Intelligence Agency in Langley, Virginia. In a press release issued today, Nelson stated:

“There is no doubt in my mind nor should there be in anyone else’s that we got the terrorist who orchestrated the insane and murderous acts that took place on September 11, 2001.”

Nelson adds he agrees with President Obama’s decision not to release the pictures right now.

“Satisfying skeptics and conspiracy theorists isn’t worth inflaming radicals or putting our troops in even more danger,” says Nelson.

Nelson added he felt releasing the pictures at some point should be part of the free flow of information that is tantamount to the country’s democracy. He also encouraged the public to be vigilant at home and abroad.
