Bachmann Gets A Look At Bin Laden Photos [AUDIO]
A decision was made yesterday to allow members of the House Intelligence Committee and Armed Services Committee to see the photos. Bachmann is a member of the Intelligence Committee.
The Congresswoman tells WJON News, after looking at them, she has no doubt the photos are those of bin Laden.
“They, I believe, do confirm that we in fact did find and correctly identify Osama bin Laden and he is no longer on this Earth. And I think the answer will be, that people want to know is, did we get our man? And I’m fully convinced we got our man.”
President Obama made the decision not to release photos of the dead bin Laden, as he explained in an interview on CBS’ 60 Minutes.
“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,” the president said.
“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.”
Bachmann says, while she agrees with the White House that the photos should not be released to the public, she does want the DNA results to be released.
Bachmann agrees with the President the photos could incite unrest among Muslims in the middle east, but she says DNA results should be less controversial.
