Why do we need to see photos confirming that bin Laden’s dead? Do we distrust our government and Obama so much that we need to see a bullet hole in his head to know for sure? Last I checked, they have blood and DNA evidence right? What more do we need?

Does it bring closure to the survivors, widowers, orphans and other loved ones who lost someone that day?
