Because they feel like they have to talk about something, and because lots of things require more thought than they are prepared to bring to a topic I am hearing and reading pundits discussing the question of whether the photographs depicting bin Laden's corpse should be released. (See, also, Why won't President Obama release a photo of Osama bin Laden in hell?). The fact is that this is not really a close call-- we know from the release of the video of Saddam Hussein's hanging that releasing this kind of material is a bad idea. If you still doubt the wisdom of experience ask, 'what would Bush have done?'

Hilariously, the reason Bush did not see fit to accompany Obama to the World Trade Center site is apparently that he feels as though he did not get enough credit for killing Osama Bin Laden. There are still those who will tell you that Bush is smarter than he gets credit for, but I cannot believe they are serious. The dog the Navy SEALS brought on the mission is more self-aware than George W. Bush.
