AP files FOIA request for access to photos of Osama bin Laden compound, raid
Source: The Washington Independent

The Atlantic Wire, in one of those Ouroboros moments that crop up whenever the media covers itself, is reporting that AP correspondents have filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the Obama administration to release photos and videos of the raid last week on Osama bin Ladens compound.

Several grisly photos (warning: graphic pictures of dead bodies) of the aftermath of the early-morning raid have already surfaced. The Reuters news agency obtained them from a member of Pakistans security forces who entered bin Ladens compound after a team of Navy SEALs shot and killed bin Laden. None of the photographs, however, show bin Laden, and President Obama has said his administration will not release any such pictures out of concern that they would incite additional violence or be used for anti-American propaganda.
