Bachmann after viewing bin Laden photos: 'We got our man'

U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann got to eyeball photos of Osama bin Laden's corpse. Her verdict?

"We got our man," she said in a press release.

Bachmann, the Sixth District congresswoman representing part of Woodbury, sits on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. According to the release, Bachmann saw the photos this morning at CIA headquarters.

"I saw the photos of a dead Osama bin Laden," she said. "I am convinced that this was bin Laden. We got our man."

In the release, Bachmann urges the release of matching DNA evidence.

President Obama last week decided against releasing so-called "death photos" of bin Laden, saying such a release could jeopardize national security. The decision helped fuel ongoing suspicions among some doubters of bin Laden's death.
