The NDP war room went into panic response mode Wednesday after party deputy leader Thomas Mulcair said on a CBC news program that he doubted the U.S. military had pictures of Osama bin Laden’s body.
During an appearance on CBC’s Power and Politics, Mulcair said he doesn’t believe U.S. authorities have photographs of bin Laden’s dead body after he was shot in the head by American forces in Pakistan this weekend.
“I don’t think, from what I’ve heard, that those pictures exist. And if they do, I’ll leave that up to the American military,” Mulcair told the CBC.
When asked again to confirm whether he believed the photos existed, Mulcair said: “No, I don’t think they do.”
His contentious comments sparked anger from other parties who voiced their concerns, quickly making the popular Montreal MP a trending topic in the Twitterverse.
