Report says no photos of Osama Bin Laden due to excessive overkill

No one has seen photos of Osama Bin Laden’s corpse and a new report says there is good reason for keeping the pics hidden from the public: overkill. While no U.S. government agency has stated U.S. elite forces obliterated Bin Laden’s corpse, an unidentified source states over 100 rounds fired into an already dead Bin Laden is the cause of the secrecy. Jack Murphy of SOFREP quotes Matt Bissonnette from his book “No Easy Day” and then quotes two confidential sources who claim excessive overkill.

Murphy writes, “Matt Bissonnette, one of the SEAL Team Six operators on the raid, partially outs the reason in his book, No Easy Day. The book reads, “In his death throes, he was still twitching and convulsing. Another assaulter and I trained our lasers on his chest and fired several rounds.The bullets tore into him, slamming his body into the floor until he was motionless” (No Easy Day, Chapter 15).

“But this is perhaps the most measured and polite description that one could give of how operator after operator took turns dumping magazines-worth of ammunition into Bin Laden’s body, two confidential sources within the community have told us. When all was said and done, UBL had over a hundred bullets in him, by the most conservative estimate.”

The idea of overkill and Bin Laden’s corpse might not cause alarm in many American citizens, but Murphy continues in his report by pointing out the legalities of such action.

Judicial Watch filed a suit with the U.S. Court of Appeals in order to have the CIA turn over the photos. The request was denied citing that the move would provoke future terrorist attacks.
