Some presidential hopefuls calling for osama photos


GREENVILLE, S.C. (WKOW) -- Some of the Republican presidential hopefuls are calling for President Barack Obama to release photos that prove U.S. forces killed Osama bin Laden during a covert raid in Pakistan.

Earlier this week, several of the potential candidates praised Obama for getting the world's most-wanted terrorist.

Texas Rep. Ron Paul says he sides with transparency when there is public doubt. Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty says releasing the photos would be OK, and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is accusing Obama of "pussy-footing" on making the photos public.

At least one Republican hopeful is siding with Obama. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney says it's best not to release such photos because they have the potential to incite retaliatory violence against Americans.
