*In a taped interview (May 4, 2011) with CBS’ long running “60 Minutes” program, to air on Sunday (May 8, 20011), President Obama said that releasing photos of Osama bin Laden may incite additional violence.
“That’s not who we are,” he explained.
*On Saturday, five never-before-seen home videos of Osama bin Laden were released by U.S. officials.
The tapes, obtained at his Abbottabad compound when Navy SEALs killed the al Qaeda leader, show him unusually candid.
In the tapes, bin Laden is seen watching himself on television and using a remote control to change the channel.
In another of apparent outtakes, he is practicing a message for the U.S., possibly filmed last fall.
U.S. intelligence officials hope the tapes will discredit bin Laden in the eyes of his supporters.
