McCain: Don't Release bin Laden Photo

Posted By on Wed, May 4, 2011 at 11:24 AM

NBC News reports that U.S. Sen. John McCain does not want to release the photos of a dead Osama bin Laden:

After an intelligence briefing on Capitol Hill, McCain said it was a "judgment" the president has to make, but that he believes it's "not necessary to do," NBC's Joel Seidman reports. McCain said he had himself not seen any of the photos.

And for all his slide to the right in recent years, McCain resists the impulse to feed the Fox-fed meme that the intelligence that led to Osama bin Laden was the result of waterboarding:

McCain added it was his understanding that the information on the bin Laden "courier" did not come from so-called "enhanced interrogation."
