Osama bin Laden Death Photos: They Have Been Released, If You Can Tell the Difference

For real?
In the aftermath of Osama bin Laden's death, federal officials are telling Seattle, King County, and state law enforcement to be on the lookout for, well, everything and nothing. Derailed trains included--or maybe not. That's the deal with terrorism: It works even when it doesn't happen--and when it does, it's typically an unavoidable, cowardly attack. But this much is certain about terrorists this week--there's one fewer. Al-Qaida now confirms the death of its leader, killed in a well-fortified mansion (surrounded by marijuana plants) where he stocked American food products (Pepsi and Nestle, for Allah's sake!). If nothing else, the confirmation should end the debate over releasing Bin Laden's death photos--as if they'd change anyone's mind. (They can be Photoshopped, Tea Partiers warn us, just like birth certificates.) Besides, Reuters has now distributed what it says is the real thing, along with photos of others killed in the compound. See for yourself. Remember, it's the digital age.
