JOHN KING, HOST, "JOHN KING USA": Because of your role as the senior Republican on the Armed Services Committee, you are among a select group of members of Congress who can, if you want to, sir, go to the CIA headquarters and look at the pictures of bin Laden to prove to yourself, if you need proof conclusively, that he is dead.
