Senators will see Bin Laden photos

The Senate Intelligence Committee and Senate Armed Services committees have been granted permission to see the photographs of Osama Bin Laden after he was killed. The CIA has asked them to make an appointment to see them. President Barack Obama said last week making the photos available for public viewing because it could incite violence and be used by al Qaeda as a propaganda tool. The committee members on the other hand have top secret clearances and are bound by them and can not reveal any details about anything that is top secret.

Pakistan Station in Limbo

The CIA declined to comment on a report that the identity of the Station Chief in Islamabad had been exposed. By all accounts the Agency seems to be suggesting it will not bring home the station chief. It was just last December that the identity of the previous station chief in Pakistan was leaked and had to be recalled immediately, for his own safety. Experts say sour relations between the U.S. and Pakistan is the reason why this kind of thing is happening. They say the killing of Osama bin Laden in Pakistani territory without their knowledge by U.S. forces is likely the reason behind the lack of cooperation.
