Peter King Says Bin Laden Photos Aren’t So Bad [Video]


Congressman Peter King traveled to the C.I.A. headquarters this morning to view the photos of Osama bin Laden.

“Clearly he was shot over the left eye,” King told Fox 5. “So that area of his head is done. And also part of his skull. Other than there are no distortions to the face.”

When President Obama was debating whether to release the photos, King said he’d favor making them public, but deferred to the president’s judgment when the administration decided not to.

“Certainly if it were in black and white it wouldn’t be that bad,” he said after seeing them, but stopped short of calling for their release. “Again, how would this play in the Muslim world? How would this play in the Middle East? I don’t know.”

King said he saw 5 or 6 photos, maybe as many as 7–including shots of Bin Laden’s body in a shroud, and of it being washed, in accordance with Islamic death rites.

Princess Olympia of Greece and Denmark 

The only daughter of Pavlos and Marie-Chantal, the Crown Prince and Princess of Greece, has quite the Instagram presence. Her posts include front row shots from NYFW, tacos with friends at La Esquina and soft serve at Cha Cha Matcha, all for her 98,000 followers. The Parsons School of Design student is also quite the jet-setter, spending time in New York, London, Los Angeles and Hong Kong (and that's just in the last month). She pulled the ultimate royal move and was rumored to have been dating her godfather's son, Prince Harry. She is his type: blonde and aristocratic, with a major penchant for hipster, Coachella-worthy ensembles, just like his ex Cressida Bonas. The 20-year-old princess counts Hollywood elite Sofia Richie and fellow royal (and cousin) Talita von Fürstenberg as pals. Unlike other New York City college students who celebrated their birthdays dancing on tables at Greek restaurants in the East Village, Princess Olympia spent hers in Mykonos, despite not speaking a word of Greek. Her mother worked for Andy Warhol before marrying into the royal family. Yes, her whole life is all very Gossip Girl.
