Poll: Do You Want To See Photos Of bin Laden?

SOUTHFIELD (WWJ)  – U.S. officials are trying to decide if the public should see graphic photos and a burial-at-sea video of a dead Osama bin Laden. They want to quell doubters who say bin Laden wasn’t killed — but are worried about inflaming Islamic sentiment.

Not everyone calling the WWJ listen line wants to see them. Here are some of the comments we’ve been hearing:

“Why would you open up an old wound? Let him alone.”

“I think that if they show those pictures publicly, it would just further infuriate al-Qaida.”

“I have no problem with them showing the video or pictures of his body. He didn’t care what he did to Americas and other people.”

“There’s no doubt in my mind that they should show bin Laden.”

“They should not release videos or pictures. I think that we should trust the word of our Navy Seals and our President of the United States.”

“I believe 100 percent that I should be shown. That way we can see the justice.”

“It wasn’t too gory to show all the news coverage when the twin towers came down and all the people that he killed. So, as far as I’m concerned, I want proof that he’s dead.”
