My buddy Donald Douglas at American Power scooped me on this (nice work) as did Bungalow Bill.
Reuters paid for a series of photos taken after the Navy SEAL Team 6 raid wherein Osama bin Laden was killed, then promptly pulled them from the internet.
Too late, Reuters: as expected, savvy new-media types grabbed the gory photos before they vanished -- one even shows the downed Navy SEAL helicopter.
Here's one of the photos, an unidentified man, dead as a squashed cockroach:
I'm not going to post all of the pictures here but you can view the entire lot at BBCW and lots more at American Power (Warning: GRAPHIC)
Methinks the Osama bin Laden death photos are going to be coming down the pike soon enough, this Reuters teaser is just that: a teaser.
Obama thus gets to have it both way as likely planned: going on the record as being against the release of photos of Osama's corpse yet most likely knowing that they are going to be "leaked" regardless.
