True that there are images over the internet that show a bullet-ridden face of Osama bin Laden, but that is where the question surfaces. A close look at the image and once can find that the image appears somewhat unreal.
Another case in point, is why have the prominent newspapers and websites of the United States and other European nations not shown that particular image which is doing the rounds? Aren't they sure if it Osama's corpse or are they waiting for an official picture release from the US army?
The third question that arises is why have the US army not released a photo of Osama's corpse? The team that brought Osama to justice, are most likely to have the images of the corpse and they haven't yet released it. It is likely that the corpse's photo would be too harsh to for public viewing and probably they will be releasing a moderate version of it anytime soon.
A closer look at various US government websites and one is unable to find any real photograph to establish the army and indeed the President's claim about Osama's death. So it can be concluded that the images being circulated are fake.
There are too many ifs and buts surrounding the photo of Osama bin Laden's corpse and it would be indeed great if the US army or government takes that one step to release the related photographs to let the whole world know how painful was the death of the man who was responsible for loss of several lifes.
