if he wants to stay in office, and achieve what he wants for his country, he realises that one needs to play with the moral boundries.
Yes, such is the world of realpolitik.  For a person of integrity it may become quite a conundrum.  The "saintly" political leader would not survive.

The Americans are surely not keen to release photos of OBL after having been shot, because this would stir up emotions.  Certain interest groups may be trying to force their hand.

What to believe? Proof will transpire one way or another, if he's in custody, it will leak, and the war on(of) terror will only escalate if he's not dead, expect some nasty things to happen in the US if this is the case, his people would want him back, and I doubt they'll stop at anything.

IMO, it also makes more sense for him to be in custody, the man is a wealth of information amongst other things, it also makes sense then as to why the Pakistani government wont allow the US to interview his wife, there's some ruckus going on about that as well.

We certainly do live in interesting times....

Please expand your thoughts? Healthcare in the US is a mess, and unlike here where just about anybody can get a medical aid via their place of work (we'll set aside for a moment the masses without jobs), there you have to apply and go through rigourous analisis before being approved and its HUGELY expensive. Why should the poor not have access to healthcare?

Well, there you go.  The shots were the succussion part of the treatment preparation, and they dumped OBL’s body in the ocean to get the necessary dilution. Grin

Yeah, I think the pakistanis are maybe correct. With america you never know, they are sly. Seeing as the face was shot, it could be any one.
