“There’s no doubt we killed Osama bin Laden,” the president said in an interview with CBS News, and there was no need to release the photographs or gloat. “There’s no need to spike the football,” he said.
The president said that for anyone who doesn’t believe bin Laden is dead, “we don’t think that a photograph in and of itself is going to make any difference.”
“There are going to be some folks who deny it. The fact of the matter is you won’t see bin Laden walking on this earth again,” said Obama. Recordherald.com
