Graham Opposes President Obama’s Decision not to Release Photos
WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made this statement on President Obama’s decision not to release photos of the corpse of Osama Bin Laden.
“I respectfully disagree with President Obama’s decision not to release the photos. It’s a mistake.
“The whole purpose of sending our soldiers into the compound, rather than an aerial bombardment, was to obtain indisputable proof of Bin Laden’s death. I know Bin Laden is dead. But the best way to protect and defend our interests overseas is to prove that fact to the rest of the world.
“I’m afraid the decision made today by President Obama will unnecessarily prolong this debate.”
