I do not like the fact that I had to add photos and videos of Bin Laden in this site. Why would I display one graphic image of his wounded face or body now?
Besides, it is not President Obama who is being difficult about releasing Bin Laden’s death photos. The problem is in our acceptance of the fact that all press or media shows bloody images during Prime Time, when there is no warning for sensitive viewers.
I still remember at how shocked my best friend’s children were at the view of Michael Jackson’s body being transported into the ambulance, consequently I know what I am talking about.
I understand perfectly that some of you, have a visual need now because you still have emotional debris of one of the most traumatizing experience of the century, (just like me except that I can easily vizualize). But if the news that, Bin Laden is dead does not produce what you expected, then a dead Bin Laden’s video will not do anything neither. However, I insist that you should never feel guilty for wanting this photos; this is an image dominated era.
President Obama’s decision, which is now the sealing of Bin Laden’s photo, is motivated by his need to protect Americans, instead of playing a childist barbaric games with remaining future ex-terrorists and their accomplices.
The only photo that has troubled me lately, is when President Obama has given order about Bin Laden, because of anyone whose life has changed by terrorism.
President Obama must going through a very difficult moment in private, that only God can understand, literally. Just a random example to his dilemna: Barack’s children, if they are like ours, who have not known 911 must be asking him questions that stabs his heart; because he must now prove to them that he is not the bad guy here.
My spiritual eyes tells me that maybe one day, there will be a private viewing for the victims family when they will get one or two photos projected after being searched THOROUGLY, when entering that dark room. (You cannot have someone taking a pic by phone). Then again I feel that the majority of the Bin Laden’s photos viewers (From a scenario’s perspective) will be disappointed. Because just like me, you will come to the conclusion that Bin Laden was not even worth all the torment you have endured because of 911. And also because like me, you will react disgusted. I am almost sure that, if ugly photos are shown to you, some of you will go around, trying to sue the government for disrespecting you for showing you Bin Laden’s photos that you requested for a reason or another.
Still, I am more ashamed at Americans who are not enjoying what President Obama and his adminsistration has done by destroying Bin Laden and his fatal activities, who was hiding in the open already at the time of Bush.
We cannot start a debate on this, want the capture of Bin Laden, has still 2 or 3 scandalous facts that hopefully his Pc will show us…Now if we want to complain about not watching pics, it is possible that the American Government will become more secretive.
Please, let us stop being impossible to satisfy and turn our wrong moods to the wonderful team that got one of the snakes that is trying to destroy the world….
…because despite the $25 million bounty on his father’s head and the ever-searching drones, Omar was confident that his father (Osama Bin Laden) would not be caught and that no Afghan would turn him in.
Omar Bin Laden told ABC News as of February 2010, before concluding that he even did not know where his father was:
“It’s been 30 years now since he (Osama Bin Laden) started fighting there. Who could catch him? No one…. This is the country that whoever gets in is stuck, be it the armies or the mujahideen,” he said.
This news that Osama Bin Laden is gone, should be better than any photo…except the next one
