Citing national security interests and adhering to a sense of American values, the President stated the following in a recently taped 60 Minutes interview:

"It is important for us to make sure that very graphic photos of somebody who was shot in the head are not floating around as an incitement to additional violence or as a propaganda tool. That's not who we are. We don't trot out this stuff as trophies."
