Obama announces he will not release photographs of bin Laden 

President Obama said on Wednesday that he will not release photographs of Osama bin Laden's bloodied body to prove to skeptics that the U.S. killed him.

"There is no dout that bin Laden is dead," Obama said. "We don't think that a photograph, in and of itself, is going to make any difference."

When asked what his reaction was when he saw photos of bin Laden's dead body, Obama said, "It was him."

The photographs would be an "incitement to additional violence or propoganda," he said, adding, "that's not who we are."

"We don't trot out this stuff as trophies," he said.
