OTTAWA— Thomas Mulcair, an experienced NDP leader said CBC TV Wednesday that U.S. President Barack Obama’s version of the death of the terrorist mastermind is incomplete, if not untrue. He said he doesn’t believe the United States has photos of Osama bin Laden’s body.
Obama said he has seen photos of bin Laden’s corpse but releasing those photos would be akin to peddling gruesome trophies. Mulcair was doubtful.
“I don’t think from what I’ve heard that those pictures exist,” Mulcair said during an appearance on Power and Politics.
“I think that if there is something that went on there, it requires a full analysis, and we have to understand whether or not there was an action where there was an action in self-defence or whether it was something that is more in the style of a direct killing. And that has to do with American law and international law as well.”
