Even almost two years after the world’s most wanted terrorist was slain by American special forces, President Barack Obama’s administration is refusing to release photos of Osama bin Laden’s dead body, warning that this would risk “grave damage” to national security.

Though media outlets worldwide had made a clamour for 52 photographs taken during ‘Operation Geronimo’ to be released, the Obama administration has stoutly resisted, warning that the images could excite an angry, even violent reaction against Americans.

But now, a conservative legal group, Judicial Watch said that the government has “failed to provide any evidence that all 52 images, including those depicting bin Laden’s burial at sea, pertain to ‘foreign activities of the United States’“.PTI
