Refusing to release them because you're afraid of the reactions of batty people is just catering to fear and hurts those, like me, do want visual proof and are mature enough to handle it. If you don't want to look at pictures of war, fine, but it's offensive to me to restrict other people from seeing them.
Speaking for myself, my comments were directed towards those claiming that pictures would be proof, despite all the evidence that already exists.
That being said, I don't think that the pictures need to be released. While I can understand a desire to see the body, with all the evidence pointing towards his death already, I believe that he's dead. Would I look at the picture is they were released? Yes. Does the fact that they aren't released make me think that Bin Laden is still alive somewhere? No.
