  1. I must say I have no interest in seeing those pictures and am sympathetic to the view they may result in increased anti American sentiment. That said there are presidents be it the post Nuremburg war Crimes executions in 1948 to the bodies of Sadam Hussein’s two sons after their deaths in a fire fight in 2003. In a democracy transparency and freedom must take precedence without exception.
