A few things just dont add up like why dont we have an actual photo or confirmation of Osama's death? Instead what we were shown was a bloody mattress photo that was released from US press conference held in Washington. What we are all aware of is that photos can be deceiving. For example, in Dec 2003 Washington released the photo of the compound where the supposed 'weapons of mass destruction' were being stored that led America into the decisive action to invade Iraq. Some of us questioned just 'what' were we really looking at when the blurry compound photo was presented and broadcast worldwide. Questions have gone unanswered as many Americans felt questioning the White House was Un-American. As of today, nothing has been found that proves that there were any real plans for chemical attacks. What also does not add up is what was said in the presidents speech given from the White house press room. The president said that he gave the order to go ahead with the operation and, that the gun fight that lead to Osama's death occurred hours later. Supposedly everything took place within a few hours the body had been disposed of according to Islam tradition all in one sweep. http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2011/05/02/osama-bin-laden-dead The only proof of death was a photo given to the press of a bloody mattress. Are we suppose to believe this photo is a positive identification of an actual event? If the intelligence from Iraq was not legitimate how can we be certain a photo of a bloody mattress is? If America will not question the White house and push for real evidence, the rest of the world will.
The US government owes the world a better expatiation. Lets recap a bit in order to understand 'why' the death of Osama Bin Laden means just as much to the global community as it does to America. The United States did not go it alone to Iraq or Afghanistan. As many of us recall Great Britain and Canada played a large role offering both ground and air support and suffered casualties and loss of troops. The United Kingdom was retaliated upon on by terrorist linked to Al-Qaeda on July 7th 2005 when a subway bomb went off killing 56 people and injuring 700. And let's not forget the UN peacekeeping mission in Afghanistan that included 25 countries. The largest non-American pledges of grants for the war effort have come from Japan, the European Commission, the United Kingdom, Canada, South Korea, and the United Arab Emirates. Other support efforts came from Police instructors from Jordan, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, Sweden, Poland, the United Arab Emirates, Denmark, Austria, Iraq, Finland, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Slovenia, Slovakia, Singapore, and Belgium participate in various aspects of the police training programs.
The end of Saddam Husein's regime was clear. The world watched the capture footage and photos of the execution of Saddam Husein. As graphic as the photos were, we were satisfied the rule of the dictator that had brutally tortured Iraqi citizens had come to an end. On Tuesday May 3rd the White house announced after the pressure from international press, it will release one photo of the body of Osama Bin Laden . According to the White house, the images were extremely graphic and there were "concerns that the photos would stir emotions". When the actual proof of death will be released is still not known. Why the White house needs more time to release a photo is also unknown or questionable. However the White house commented that they are certain this will be the one of the most viewed photos ever and that due the nature of the shooting, exactly which image to show was not an easy judgement. Many of us feel sensitivity should not be the greatest dilemma the US government faces right now when it comes to giving closure to the largest terrorist attack ever in history. For the families involved in 911, for the soldiers who fought, for the countries that financially supported the efforts, for the foreign troops that died either during the Iraq invasion or the UN Peace keeping missions. They deserve to be satisfied to no end that Osama is clearly removed. The White house owes that to the world.
