Another Reason to Release Bin Laden's Post-Mortem Photos

Al-Qaeda confirms bin Laden’s death, satisfies conspiracy theorists(?)

Through online jihadist fora posted Friday, al-Qaeda confirmed that its brain, Osama bin Laden, is dead.

Though its authenticity could not be established, the announcement made by the ruthless global militant Islamist group has quashed doubts that had been lingering over the death of the world’s most infamous mass murderer.

The confirmation serves as an indication that gives U.S. President Barack Obama another reason to change his mind and release bin Laden’s post-mortem photos. Because clearly, not releasing the photos—with graphic details on how “Obama got Osama”—does not give the rest of the world an assurance that the bereaved followers of bin Laden will not retaliate. In fact, al-Qaeda has said that Americans’ happiness "will turn into sorrow, and their blood will be mixed with their tears."

The release of bin Laden’s death photos would give us the same feeling we felt when we have reckoned fairly graphic video and photos of the death of Saddam Hussein. We have seen videos of terrorists carrying out executions; now is the time for us to see photos that connote triumph against worldwide infernal violence.


Royal Wedding Moves Over

When Obama announced Monday morning in the Philippines that bin Laden is dead, the whole world seemed to forget the day when Will and Kate exchanged vows during their wedding ceremony at Westminster Abbey in London.

The survey conducted by the Global Language Monitor (GLM) shows that the death of bin Laden has eclipsed the royal wedding in the list of the biggest world news story of the 21st century.
