Sarah Palin tells Obama to “stop pussy-footing around” and release bin Laden’s death photos

Sarah Palin tweet

Some people aren't pondering the significance of Osama bin Laden's death because they are too busy criticizing Obama's decision not to publicly release photos of what was likely a gory, military operation. And by some people we mean Sarah Palin. She recently tweeted this grammatically annoying message, "Show photo as warning to others seeking America's destruction. No pussy-footing around, no politicking, no drama; it's part of the mission". In other words, Palin thinks our enemy is just like the internet — pics or it didn't happen.

I'm not quite sure how not revealing snuff-like photos is detrimental to a political mission. Rather than bask in the bloodlust of recent victories, I'm sure the Obama administration has way more important work to do in terms of preventing future terrorist attacks. Besides wouldn't releasing pictures just add to the drama? Do we really need the bloody visuals to add to the spectacle that the news has already wrought?
