With all the lies Obama has told, could there be any lies uncovered here?
Check it out:

A federal appeals court ruled Tuesday that the CIA does not have to release photos of Osama bin Laden’s corpse to the public.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled that the CIA’s concerns the images could incite violence and harm national security were sufficient to keep the bin Laden photos classified.

The appellate court’s unanimous ruling rejected a lawsuit from Judicial Watch, the conservative watchdog group that had sued for the photos to be released.

“The CIA’s declarations give reason to believe that releasing images of American military personnel burying the founder and leader of al Qaeda could cause exceptionally grave harm,” the court wrote in its decision.
