Bin Laden death photos: Who’s viewing them, who’s notby George Bennett | May 12th, 2011
U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and U.S. Rep. Tom Rooney, R-Tequesta, are scheduled to visit CIA headquarters today to view photos of Osama bin Laden‘s body taken after the May 1 Navy SEAL raid of the Islamist terrorist’s in-plain-sight Pakistani hideout.
Sen. Marco Rubio and U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Plantation, turned down invitations to view the bin Laden death photos.
Select members of Congress have been invited to view the photos, which President Obama has decided to keep from general public release.
Nelson, Rubio and Rooney are members of the Intelligence Committees in their respective chambers. West is on the House Armed Services Committee.
