I heard them talking about this on Today as I was about to leave for work.

Damned if they do, damned if they don't. Some will believe the photos to be real, others will not. Such is life in the age of ubiquitous technology.

I agree.

If he is dead, picture or not, I think the extremists will respond.

I was a skeptic of this story at first, but if he is dead, we will know soon because of the response in the Middle East.

In a way, killing him was necessary. Imagine the amount of hostage takings to exchange for his release.

Meanwhile, commodities continue their downward slide.
I speculate that they buried him at sea in order to keep his supporters from making a shrine or anything that promotes such terror and hatred or make him into a martyr.

That's probably exactly the thinking behind it.

I have to say, however, that the videos of people cheering and celebrating his death will paint Americans as more than a bit hypocritical in the end (and in some ways, no better than those who attacked us).

I am and glad he is dead. The world needs less lunatics, but I am more of the mind of a Dr. King quote in these instances:

"I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that."

I saw a 9/11 widow saying how his death brings her no peace and nothing can--it doesn't bring back her husband. I can see that.

And this "cutting the head off the snake" metaphor is incorrect, IMO. It was more like "pulling the tail off a lizard." It will grow back.
