CIA: US to eventually release photo of bin Laden

May 4, 2011 01:25

WASHINGTON - There is no question that the United States will ultimately release a photo showing Osama bin Laden dead, the director of the CIA told NBC News on Tuesday, but the White House renewed its position that no decision had been made.

"The government obviously has been talking about how best to do this, but I don't think there was any question that ultimately a photograph would be presented to the public," Leon Panetta said according to a transcript of the television interview, recorded shortly after 10:30 a.m. (1430 GMT).

Asked by Reuters about the remarks, a White House spokesman said no decision had been made about releasing images of bin Laden dead.
