A day after news quickly traveled that the White House would release to the public a photo of Osama bin Laden's body to prove he is indeed dead, President Obama has overturned the decision, a senior administration official told NBC News on Wednesday.
The White House has apparently decided that the potential backlash would outweigh the benefits of offering definitive proof of the killing. To hear the official words coming from Obama himself, viewers can tune into the 60 Minutes interview to air Sunday (May 8), reports CBS News. Excerpts from the interview will be out later today.[mashshare]
