Sarah Palin to Obama: No "Pussy-Footing" on Osama Bin Laden Photos

| by Mark Berman Opposing Views

Sarah Palin is blasting President Obama for his decision not to release the death photos of Osama Bin Laden, comparing it to his reluctance to release his birth certificate.

According to a report in the New York Daily News, Palin took to Twitter after Obama revealed the decision:

Show the photos as a warning to others seeking America's destruction. No pussy-footing around, no politicking, no drama; it's part of the mission.

In a speech in Alabama a few hours before the official word came from the White House, Palin said, "Don't do kind of that birth certificate whole mocking of Americans for asking for it."

The photos have been a talking point for Palin for the past 24 hours, apparently. She brought it up during a speech at a fundraiser Tuesday night,

"No games. Just release the photos and get it over with," Palin said according to the web site of the Baldwin Press-Register. "We are anxious for the photos, the proof, to be revealed so that we can show those terrorists and say, 'We contained [Bin Laden], we contained that hatred and that evil, and we have the pictures to prove it.'"

Palin said in that speech that she fears the refusal to release the photos will only spur conspiracy theorists "especially in some Arab nations."
