bin Laden photo thoughts?

CBS News just reported that President Obama told their reporter he would not release photos of Osama bin Laden's corpse.

"We don't trot out this stuff as trophies," Obama told CBS, according to quotes provided by White House press secretary Jay Carney. "We don't need to spike the football."

Obama also said release of the gruesome photos could become "an incitement to additional violence" and be used by jihadists as "a propaganda tool."

"That's not who we are," Obama said.

How do you feel about this? Are we owed this information? Why or why not?
