Bin Laden death photos to be shown to some members of Congress

Washington (CNN) - Members of the Senate Armed Services Committee and the Senate Intelligence Committee, as well as those in the equivalent House committees, will be allowed to view the photographs taken of Osama bin Laden after he was killed, a U.S. official told CNN Tuesday.

The viewings will take place at CIA headquarters in northern Virginia at a time to be decided, the official said.

    I suspect they are all Republicans. A pretty sick group of people if you ask me....all but my little brother, and my county sheriff.

    To what end? To satisfy some morbid curiosity? Do they think he's not really dead, and want to see the evidence? How in the heck does this fit with the goals or mission of the Senate Intelligence Committee (other to prove that the committee's name is an oxymoron)?

    If they dont believe that the man is really dead, then showing a photo wont convince them. If they DO believe that he is dead, then showing a photo is unneccesary. Either way it's a morbid excuse to – what? Gloat over his body? Does this make the Senators the biggest, toughest, strongest baddest guys around? Puh-leease!

    It's time to move on and see to the REAL Senate Intelligence Committee work, like finding the NEW head of al-Queda. Or figuring out which domestic terrorist organization is the biggest threat. Leave this Abu-Grahib nonsense to the idiot elements attending Tea parties dressed in camouflage.

    What's the point of showing these photos? They don't proove anything. Any photo they release can be easily reproduced on photoshop.
