Lawmakers differ on releasing bin Laden photo

WASHINGTON (AP) - A New York Democrat is backing President Barack Obama's refusal to release photos of the slain Osama bin Laden, while a California Republican says making the pictures public would bring closure for the relatives of 9/11 victims.
Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner says people should accept that "these photos won't add anything." Conspiracy theories aside, he said that if the release of the photos endangered even a single military life or the life of an intelligence officer, it would be tragic.
Arguing for making the pictures public, Rep. Duncan Hunter said "it's not about a conspiracy theory. It's about closure." Appearing with Weiner Thursday on CBS's "The Early Show," Hunter said the U.S. "should not curb our First Amendment rights because of what some crazy people might do."
