In the ongoing struggle that Barack Obama has with publishing the photographs in that they are too gruesome (which is pretty rich coming from a country which produces horror films like "Saw" and "Nightmare on Elm Street") hides a particularly embarrassing reason.
A spokesman for the Obama administration told In Seine News: "it now emerges that the Navy Seals were given orders only to shoot Osama Bin Laden if he wasn't naked - in case he was wearing a suicide vest (which I am told is quite normal for terroists to wear them in bed).".
"Of course, this order was probably misunderstood and he was shot naked - by camera! Now the Obama administration needs to decide whether the images of pornographic in nature as they would not want to be held responsible for trophy hunters!"
This explains why the photographs were deemed to be too gruesome!
