*According to the AP, the Obama administration is debating whether to release photographs of Osama bin Laden’s body as well as video of his burial at sea.
Officials are wary of inflaming bin Laden’s sympathizers by showing graphic images of the body-and they’re apparently quite graphic-though they also want to shut down myths that he is still alive.
But the photographs and video aren’t the most important documents to come out of the raid. Navy SEALs reportedly made off with a trove of al Qaeda evidence, from DVDs to hard drives, that the CIA is now combing through for hints about the whereabouts of the cell’s presumed next-in-command, Ayman al-Zawahri.
Meanwhile, as Americans celebrated, al Qaeda fed fears of a retaliation.
“By God, we will avenge the killing of the Sheik of Islam,” one al Qaeda commentator said. “Those who wish that jihad has ended or weakened, I tell them: Let us wait a little bit.”
Also, President Obama is scheduled to visit the World Trade Center site on Thursday.
