The government will not release any photographs of Usama bin Laden at his death. But Reuters today released photographs of other casualties of the May 1 raid that were at least as gruesome as any of Bin Laden’s photographs are supposed to be.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney made the announcement early Wednesday afternoon (May 4), according to Fox News. He and President Barack H. Obama separately said that the release of any such photographs would “become icons to rally opinion against the United States.”
