Inhofe: ‘Gruesome’ photos reveal bin Laden in nothing but his underwear when shot

There has been a lot of speculation as to what the post-mortem photos of Osama bin Laden, that the Obama administration has refused to release, show. Member of Congress, however, are being allowed to view them at CIA Headquarters.

The first member of Congress to view them according to “Fox Report” anchor Shepard Smith was Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Inhofe. Inhofe appeared on Smith’s show and told him that the photos are “gruesome.”

“They are gruesome, of course, because it was taken right after the incident,” he said. “And so, of the 12, three of them were older pictures so that we could actually compare what he looked like when he had the black beard and what he looked like after he was killed. And that was part — the good way of making that presentation. Then they had some of his ear. Now, what had happened in those, I couldn’t tell whether the bullet went through the ear and out the eye cavity or through the eye and out the ear because a lot of brains were draped out from the socket. But it clearly — what we saw there was it was him. There is no question he was dead. But, the more revealing pictures really were the ones on the USS Vinson and the North Arabian Sea.”

Inhofe then revealed details about the photos that have not been made public yet — that bin Laden was in his underwear at the time of his death.

“See, the beard is a moving target because he dyes it all the time,” Inhofe said. “And the pictures we had older pictures had a black beard. His beard this time was a little bit shorter and it was more salt-and-pepper. You could tell it’s probably the actual color of the beard. Now, what he was dressed in, some of these were just headshots so you only had the head shot. Only two of them showed that he was partially, I would say you would call underwear on, that was about it.”

Inhofe explained that despite some of the reports that his skull was partially gone, that was not the case based on his viewing of the photos.

“It appeared that way at first,” Inhofe said “Then when you saw the other pictures later, you could tell it wasn’t that way. Now, what happened was if the bullet went into the eye socket, then it was an explosive, it detonated once it was in so that caused the brain to come back out of the eye socket. That’s what made it look so gruesome.”

    If we had NOT killed OBL, Obama would not risk saying “You won’t be seeing him walking around anymore” because all it would take is OBL to release one new video and the US would be shown to be liars. Even Al Qaeda has admitted it, and how often do they ever agree with *anything* we say? So I don’t need a photo to know he’s dead. What good is a photo anyway? Photos can be ‘shopped, and the “deathers” would never let it go.

    On the other hand, it could be argued that maybe we didn’t really dump him at sea, that his corpse is lying in some CIA cold locker somewhere, and we just made up the dodgy 24-hour burial-at-sea story to get the Muslims off our backs. Hey that’s fine with me. They can stuff him with bacon and use him as a pinata for all I care.

    Here’s another conspiratorial thought: Pakistan is in a very difficult position re its own internal militants. It is in Pakistan’s interest to look like they’re pissed at us for not telling them. It’s also in their interest for us to say we’re pissed at them for not knowing OBL was there. Also, no country that has the technology to build nukes would be totally unaware that a squadron of helicopters was flying over their airspace. All the butt-hurt was prearranged.

    Pictures… Pictures… I don’t need no stinkin’ pictures (so to paraphrase). All through my schooling I was taught that one cannot prove a negative; prove that if you didn’t do that then this would have have happened. Here we have the exception. Even though we all know that UbL was shot and killed there are those who, like the Birthers, just don’t believe. Well then all we need is for UbL to release a *new* video proving he’s not dead. Otherwise, literally, nothing to see here – move on folks.
