Unnecessary roughness

I really think its unnecessary to show the photos and will only inflame, more, the Muslim world.

White House: bin Laden photo 'gruesome'
Associated Press -

WASHINGTON — The White House says the photograph of a dead Osama bin Laden is "gruesome" and that "it could be inflammatory" if released.

White House press secretary Jay Carney said the White House is mulling whether to make the photo public, but he said officials are concerned about the "sensitivity" of doing so. Carney said there is a discussion internally about the most appropriate way to handle but "there is not some roiling debate here about this."

Asked if President Barack Obama is involved in the photo discussion, Carney said the president is involved in every aspect of this issue.
