So, We Can Watch Bin Laden Family Videos, But Not Photos Or Videos Of Him Dead?

I just do not get this about the Dear Leader, President Obama, his minions, and enablers on the right.
We are told multiple reasons why the government can not release any photos of the cold, dead corpse of Osama bin Laden. Nor any photos or videos of the dumping of bin Laden in the sea.
Yet, yesterday a slew of videos are released showing bin Laden to be the self-obsessed tyrant that, well most dictator types are.
Oh, bin Laden cooked-up his gray beard black so when he made some video message for the eeeeevvviiiiilllll Americans, allies and non-Islamics, he looked cool. You know, in the white turban, some kind of robe and that black beard.
Another of the bin Laden family vids show a blanketed bin Laden watching a television that had on the Dear Leader, President Obama. Strange to show that, isn't it? Maybe it is to prove to us Obama-doubters that even the world's most wanted terrorist could not get enough of the Dear Leader, President Obama.
Again, why is this necessary to show, yet photos and or video of the cold, dead bin Laden corpse somehow a bad thing?
There is not one logical response to the above question.
Because the reasoning has changed. From it is not what a civilized nation does to it would endanger our troops. There is not a real reason that the administration and or its defenders and enablers to continue to stonewall the people.
Now much will be made of this NBC poll that show Americans basically agree with the decision not to show the death photos. But now that the administration has chosen to show the family vids, maybe that should be asked and put side-by-side. Consistency would have to be that if one does not want to see the dead bin Laden, one should not want to see the vids of the alive bin Laden.
Now I think that the reason may be a fatigue in general regarding the War Against Islamofacsist Terror.
It has been almost 10 years since the war came to American shores. And while former President George W. Bush warned that it would be a long war, people are weary of it. The economy sucks, unemployment is at nine percent, the general attitude of the public is that the righteous killing of bin Laden will not really make a difference in their lives.
Also, once again this is a poll of about 800 adults. Not registered or likely voters. People that may not pay a lot of attention to events in general.
I maintain that the showing of the photos of a dead bin Laden is not because I am a doubter. But that there are fence-sitters that wonder what happened last Sunday night. The story has changed numerous times. Now it is being reported that bin Laden may have actually been in United States custody and that he was killed in that state. Much different than a firefight that was originally reported.
I ask again, why does anyone want to see the bin Laden family video, and not the cold, dead corpse? I think that someone needs to ask those questions and get some consistant answers.

That's an excellent point.

On the one hand you can show photos of corpses, but you can how films of the person days (supposedly) before he was killed.

When it comes to 9/11 through bin Laden's capture, I've been incredibly leery of our government. Like never before. I'm turned into one of those cranky old conspiracy nuts, but our government has done nothing to disprove my cynicism.
