Morning Poll: Should Government Release Photos of Osama bin Laden's Dead Body?

Good news: According to the president of the United States -- in a speech that could give even Sean Hannity an O-boner -- Osama bin Laden is dead.

Better news: the U.S. government reportedly has the photos to prove it.

Rather than take the government at its word, conspiracy theorists across the world already are concocting reasons about how the death of the world's number one criminal is a hoax. Check it out here.

Top-level government officials are debating whether to release photos of bin Laden's bullet-riddled body to the public to hopefully hush some of the doubters. The problem, however, is bin Laden was shot in the face, so the photos might be a little tough on the eyes.

We don't care how graphic the photos might be -- we want to see that body. But we also want to know what you think about it -- should the government release photos of the dead body of the man responsible for the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history?
