Blunt agrees. Bin Laden is dead.
  • Blunt agrees. Bin Laden is dead.
U.S. Senator Roy Blunt yesterday viewed the photos of Osama bin Laden taken after Navy SEALs killed the al-Qaida leader this month in Pakistan.

In a statement yesterday, Blunt said the pictures leave no doubt. "The pictures were conclusive, along with the DNA evidence and the SEAL commander's word. Based on everything I know, he is definitely dead," said Blunt.

Blunt was granted a peek at the pictures because he serves on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. The senator said he decided to view the photos on behalf of Missouri residents. 

Yes, apparently Blunt is not only our voice in Washington. He's also our eyes.
