Sen. Blunt sees bin Laden photos: 'No doubt he's dead'

Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt wasn’t sure he wanted to see photos of a dead Osama bin Laden.

But today, Blunt traveled to CIA headquarters in Langley, Va., to take a look. As a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, he was entitled to peek at the photos — if he wanted.

Blunt broke the news on his Twitter account:

“I saw the photos today. No doubt that bin Laden is dead.”

He then issued a statement:

“I had all the information I needed, but had the opportunity to view the pictures and knew it was important to the people I worked for.

“The pictures were conclusive along with the DNA evidence and the SEAL commander’s word. Based on everything I know, he is definitely dead. I think the decisions made were all done right.

“I have plenty of disagreements with the President, but this wasn’t one of them.”
