Some Doubt Bin Laden Is Really Dead

WASHINGTON -- In Pakistan and elsewhere, the mythology is already building -- that Osama bin Laden isn't really dead. And U.S. officials want to offer additional proof to counter that -- perhaps by releasing video and photos of the al-Qaida leader after his death.
But counterterrorism adviser John Brennan says it "needs to be done thoughtfully" to avoid inflaming Islamic sentiment around the world.
There are photos of bin Laden's corpse, and video of his swift burial at sea.
U.S. officials say the photographic evidence shows bin Laden was shot above his left eye, blowing away part of his skull. They say he was also shot in the chest.
