I'm in the minority on both of these questions. I said yes to the first because I support the notion of transparency in government. Showing the pictures might dispel some of the conspiracy theories, though I realize that nothing would please many of those people. Having said this however, I think that those who adopt the opposite argument also have a valid position, i.e. that releasing the pictures might serve as a motivator to Al Queda (or, as President Obama put it, it would be like "spiking the ball after a touchdown."

On the second point, I'm not a fan of blood and gore, I just think that, being honest, curiosity would get the better of me and I'd want to see the pictures.

Eh, Al Qaeda's already said they're going to crack down even harder on the US, so we might as well spike the ball, you know? They're gonna hit us either way, might as well get some gloating in before we all die.
