The Atlantic Wire's John Hudson spoke with Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) after he became the first member of Congress to view the photos of Osama bin Laden's dead body on Wednesday.
In an interview with The Atlantic Wire after he returned from the CIA headquarters, Inhofe described the photos he saw. He said he was shown 15 photos. A dozen of those were taken at the Abbottabad compound and appear to be "taken right after the instant he was shot." They sound gruesome. They show a massive head wound in the ear and eye. "The brains were coming out of his socket," Inhofe said. But he said three other photos were taken on board the ship before bin Laden's sea burial. In these, the body has been cleaned up and Inhofe, who has advocated releasing the photos, said, "It's much more reasonable to show the public these photos."
