After President Barack Obama made the decision to not release photos of Osama Bin Laden’s corpse, Sarah Palin accused him “pussy-footing.”

She said on her Twitter: “Show photo as warning to others seeking America's destruction. No pussy-footing around, no politicking, no drama; it’s part of the mission.”

Similarly, Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said:

“The whole purpose of sending our soldiers into the compound, rather than an aerial bombardment, was to obtain indisputable proof of Bin Laden’s death. I know Bin Laden is dead. But the best way to protect and defend our interests overseas is to prove that fact to the rest of the world.  I’m afraid the decision made today by President Obama will unnecessarily prolong this debate.”

Many Americans, however, don’t agree with Palin’s criticism, especially at a time when Obama is credited with taking out bin Laden and is enjoying a renewed surge in popularity.

Facebook user Richard Lubbers wrote on Palin’s Facebook page:

“You accused the President of pussyfooting?

I do not believe the President is pussyfooting about anything. His style may be different than yours, but he got the job done. Yes, the former President laid the ground work for bin Laden's capture, but this President accomplished what the last could not.

Don't be so critical. If you end up in the same job, you may find it a bit more demanding than hosting talk shows and writing books.”
