WASHINGTON — Skeptical-sounding federal judges on Thursday considered whether the public can see pictures of terror mastermind Osama bin Laden, taken after he had been shot dead by U.S. Navy SEALs in a raid on his hideout two years ago.

The 52 pictures, some described as "graphic” and “gruesome" by a top CIA official, highlight a Freedom of Information Act fight that climaxes just as Hollywood’s version of bin Laden’s death hits movie theaters. But while Hollywood’s depiction has attracted both critical acclaim and political heat, and was accomplished with the CIA’s help, the real world pictures snapped by elite commandos seem destined to remain secret.

“They’re telling us it’s a risk . . . that Americans will die if we release these documents,” Judge Merrick Garland said Thursday, adding that “when the government tells us this is likely to lead to death, shouldn’t we defer to that (even) more than when they say it will result in the release of secret information?”

Looks like this will clear the way to deny further FOIA requests. They'll use their stacked courts to do it.

Excuses for photos that, in all likelihood, don't exist.
War is an extension of economics and diplomacy through other means.

Economics and diplomacy are methods of securing resources used by humans.

Securing resources is the one necessary behavior for all living things.

Gruesome? We all saw the dead bodies of Sadaam and his boys, and they were not nearly as gruesome in real life, as what we see on CSI, Criminal Minds, Dexter, and and number of movies. The idea they are too horrible to view is ridiculous. Nothing in my life is much more gruesome than remembering the people who jumped from the WTC instead of burning to death.

Or the video of JFK's skull cap getting torn off.

Complete BS... The whole Osama thing... No proof of it except a Hollywood story.

You have to ask the question, why would the security services, or the intelligence services want to photograph a deceased terrorist? The CIA trained Bin Laden and know him better than most, they probably have a extensive file on this individual.

I have no doubt that the seals all had video feeds on the helmets. The President and all in that room were watching in real time, when he was killed. That is why Hillary was gasping and had her hand on her mouth, the go ahead to take him and kill him is nessesary came from within that room, and they watched it live.

What difference does it make? Those who feel they absolutely NEED to see the photo's won't believe the photo's are real anyway. This is the logic of conspiracy theorists that I just don't get, they'll think the government can invent new technology to create a hologram that appears to be a plane flying into the WTC, but they are incapable of photoshopping an image of Bin Laden to appear as though he is dead?

This is nothing more than straw grasping to attack an disliked president, it was done to Bush for 8 years, it was done to Clinton for 8 years, etc... The wheels on the bus go round and round. I'm not necessarily saying the present administration is being honest, or dishonest for that matter, just that the people demanding the photos will ABSOLUTELY think they are fake, no matter what, and there will be 20 million people commenting somewhere on the internet that they are fake.

I believe he's dead, I believe they killed him that night in Pakistan... What seriously needs to be investigated, IMO, is what he was doing in Pakistan, less than a mile from Pakistan's top military academy, a country we gave arms and money to for their cooperation, the country the Taliban originates from, and how long he was there. I said it 8 years or so ago that they were harboring him, what they should have been doing was bombing the piss out of Pakistan, instead of chasing imaginary weapons and Al Qaeda links in Iraq.
