The Bush response

Will Ferrell once again portrays George W. Bush in responding to the death of Osama bin Laden…

Meanwhile, in real life, President Obama has decided not to release the death photos of Osama bin Laden. For the record, this a decision with which I agree. (The truly bloodthirsty among you can quench your thirst here.) What would be the point, other than giving al Qaeda another recruitment tool? The nonbelievers and conspiracy nuts among us will just claim that the photo was doctored. Besides, as President Obama will tell you, we are better people now than we were when the Bush administration released the death pictures of Sadam Hussein’s sons or the pictures of torture at Abu Ghraib prison.

“There is no doubt that Osama bin Laden is dead,” he [the President] said. “Certainly there is no doubt among al Qaeda members that he is dead. So we don’t think that a photograph in and of itself is going to make any difference.”
