he did not use his wife as a human shield

he was not armed and he did not use his wife as a human shield — the White House is now exercising restraint by not releasing photos of the terrorist mastermind's bullet-pocked corpse. it may be that the pictures of the event with the most staying power are not from the attack itself but from the Situation Room, taken by official White House photographer Pete Souza. The images of Obama gesturing to his military commanders, watching the raid on the compound (ashen-faced in one picture, and with his knuckles in his mouth in another), and then, later, shaking hands with Admiral Mike Mullen after alerting the nation of the successful strike, are grade-A iconic photos, up there with Bush and his bull horn at Ground Zero. - ARTINFO
