"Upon viewing the photos, he believes that there should be no doubt whatsoever that Osama bin Laden is indeed dead," a Lieberman spokesman. "Senator Lieberman also agrees with President Obama's decision not to release the photos."

Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-O.K., told ABC News he viewed several photos, including one where he could see "where actually one of the bullets went in through the left eye and out the right ear."

"The type of ordinance, it has an explosion to it, so it did blow some of the brains, some of the material, out of the left eye cavity," he said."In a couple of them you can see through the eye cavity, you can see the inner parts of the head. Obviously I'm not a doctor, so I don't know what I was looking at, but it's pretty messy."

Bachmann said in a statement: "This morning at the CIA headquarters I saw the photos of a dead Osama bin Laden. I am convinced that this was bin Laden. We got our man."
