    I just have to give all the respect to the US Military that carried out every stage of the fight against Osama Bin Laden. I honestly believe the USA should have killed when we first was 3click's from him at the start of the entire war. I am a vet. I have traveled to different countries fighting for our freedom. Since the USA has killed Osama, in my heart I feel we deserve to see the photos of Osama. Everyone ask yourself a question: HOw many times have we seen US Soldiers and civilians on live TV? How about the gentleman that had his head cut off with a sword? To many Soldiers have given their lives and have fought for our freedoms and we dont have a right to see the Osama Bin Laden photos? That is a smack in the face to US citizens.

    Thank you Anderson for telling the story of Sr. Airman Jason Cunningham. He is very important to our family as he rescued my husband from a HC130 crash in Afghanistan on 13 Feb. 2002. We remember him and celebrate his life almost 10 years later. Even now it brings me to tears that such a wonderful, young, hero was lost. God bless you, God bless Jason, God bless America.
