Release of bin Laden’s photo likely

Washington (CNN) — CIA Director Leon Panetta said yesterday he thinks a photograph of Osama bin Laden’s body will be released at some point, but that it is up to the White House to make the final call.
A senior administration official said no decision has been made yet as to whether to release the photo.
“I just think it’s important, they know we have it, to release it,” Panetta said.
He did not know when the photograph might be made public.
Two Democratic senators, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said last night they expected a photograph to be released shortly, but they did not have an exact time frame either.
