Republican Sen. James Inhofe told CNN’s Eliot Spitzer on Wednesday he saw about 15 photos of bin Laden’s body, most taken at the al Qaeda leader’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Three were taken on a naval vessel from which bin Laden was buried at sea after the May 2 U.S. commando raid.
“Pretty gruesome” is how Inhofe described photos of brains hanging out of bin Laden’s eye socket. The wound either entered or exited an ear, the Oklahoma senator said.
Many people have demanded proof that bin Laden was killed.
“That was him,” said Inhofe, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. “He is gone. He’s history.”
