5th District Congressman Doug Lamborn saw photos of Osama bin Laden this morning and is now urging President Obama to reconsider releasing at least some of the photos.
"The photos show very starkly and graphically that Osama bin Laden is dead. It is one thing to hear that, but it is another thing to see it with your own eyes. The photos show very clearly that Osama has met his end," Lamborn said in a news release. "It brought me closure. I believe the Administration should consider releasing the least graphic of the photos because it could bring closure for the victims' families, and for all Americans."
Lamborn said there are legitimate concerns on both side of the issue, but more good can be done by releasing a photo.
Congressman Lamborn viewed the photos at the CIA Headquarters in Langley, VA.
