DENVER (AP) — Colorado congressman Doug Lamborn says the least graphic of the Osama bin Laden photos should be made public.
Lamborn said he saw the photos for about 10 minutes Thursday at CIA headquarters in Langley, Va. He said some showed bin Laden shot in the head, including some taken immediately after his death in his bedroom.READ MORE: Colorado's Rural Health Departments Work With Churches And Social Media Influencers To Encourage Vaccinations

The Republican from Colorado Springs is one of three Colorado lawmakers eligible to see the photos because of their membership on Congressional intelligence and military committees.
Democratic Sen. Mark Udall doesn’t plan to see them until at least next week. Republican Rep. Mike Coffman doesn’t think there’s any need for him to see them.MORE NEWS: Camping Ban: Boulder Takes New Steps To Ban Tents & Propane On Public Lands
