Argument: Bin Laden photos could be seen as insensitive trophies
- Debate: Release of Osama bin Laden death photos - con argument.
President Obama said about his decision not to release the photos: "That's not who we are. We don't trot this stuff out as trophies."
Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, said he was concerned that the photos could be viewed abroad as a “trophy” that inflames U.S. critics and makes it harder for members of the American military deployed overseas to do their job.
