There is an interesting  story today about three members of Congress from North Carolina who are authorized to see the pictures of the body of Osama Bin Laden— Senator Richard Burr, Senator Kay Hagan, and Congressman Walter Jones.

Two of the three plan to view the photos and put out press releases, etc. One of them doesn’t plan to look at the pictures because the member of Congress “believes the word of the president and the military…(and)does not need to see the photos to know that bin Laden is dead.” 

Which one is making so much sense?  Read the story. You might be surprised.

    It would not surprise me if the one who does not need to see the photos is Congressman Jones. What he will show you is pictures of all the Marines and Soldiers in his district who have been killed because of this conflict and the families they leave. He ill also ask you to plead with Senator Burr and Senator Hagan to bring the troops home. I may be wrong but that is my guess having recently spent time in all three’s D.C. offices.
