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.

Will you take advantage of that?

SEN. JOHN MCCAIN (R), ARIZONA:  No, John.  I've lived a long life and I've - I've seen enough dead bodies and pictures of them.

KING:  And you think it would serve no purpose for yourself personally or it's just that you have no doubt, therefore why do it?
