The White House says it has made no decision on whether to release photographic proof that Osama bin Laden is dead.
John Brennan, President Barack Obama's counterterrorism adviser, says the administration will do everything it can to make sure no one can deny U.S. claims that the al-Qaida leader was killed during a firefight with U.S. forces in Pakistan.
But Brennan says still to be determined is whether to release a photo of bin Laden's dead body. Brennan says one concern is whether doing so could potentially jeopardize similar operations and intelligence sources in the future.
A number of newspapers and broadcast news sources have reported that internet pictures said to be of bin Laden, after he was shot, are fake.
