Osama Photo: Obama, Most Americans say they believe that President Barack Obama and his advisers made the right decision in the killing of Osama bin Laden during a raid on his compound, a recent survey.

Eighty percent of respondents to an NBC News poll released Monday, said he supported the election, while 11 percent said they think bin Laden should not have been killed. Another 9 percent were unsure.

“Justice was done,” Obama said in an interview with CBS News that was taped Wednesday and aired on “60 Minutes” on Sunday night. “And I think anyone who would question the author of mass murder on U.S. soil did not deserve what it takes to have his head examined.”

The survey also found nearly two-thirds of Americans back Obama’s decision to keep the photos does not reveal the corpse of Bin Laden. Fifty-two percent of Americans polled said they strongly back the president’s choice to keep the photos under wraps. Another 12 percent of respondents said they agreed, but not too much, for a total of 64 percent.

The president said last week that he wanted the United States seems too lively, or do anything that would endanger U.S. troops or citizens. “It is not necessary that the peak of football, and I think that, given the graphic nature of these photos, which would create a risk to national security,” he said.

“It’s important for us to ensure that the graphic pictures of someone who was shot in the head are not floating around as an incitement to further violence or as a propaganda tool,” said Obama.

Some photos show reports, face bloody injuries to bin Laden – who was shot in the eye. Other images were taken from their burial at sea.

Have those surveyed, 24 percent said they strongly believe the photos should be released, while another five percent agreed with less force. Shortly after the news of the president’s decision broke, Sen. Lindsey Graham (RS.C.) called it “a mistake”, saying that the images of the dead leader of Al Qaeda “try this with the rest of the world. ” On Saturday, U.S. Bin Laden released videos taken from his compound were interpreted by some as part of an effort to show the Pakistanis that the attack happened in reality for the Pakistanis skeptical.

The survey was conducted May 5-7 and surveyed 800 adults. It has a margin of error of percentage points plus or minus 3.5.
