"Pussy-footing": Palin slams Obama on photo


Via twitter, Sarah Palin reacts to Barack Obama's decision to not release a photo of the dead Osama bin Laden.

Show photo as warning to others seeking America's destruction. No pussy-footing around, no politicking, no drama;it's part of the mission

Earlier today, Obama told CBS why he wasn't releasing the photo.

"It is important to make sure that very graphic photos of somebody who was shot in the head are not floating around as an incitement to additional violence or as a propaganda tool," said the president.

"We don't trot out this stuff as trophies," Mr. Obama added. "The fact of the matter is, this is somebody who was deserving of the justice that he received."

The Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Mike Rogers, agreed.

"The risks of release outweigh the benefits.

Conspiracy theorists around the world will just claim the photos are doctored anyway, and there is a real risk that releasing the photos will only serve to inflame public opinion in the Middle East."
