what changed. after days of debate, pictures of osama bin laden's body won't be released to prove his death. >> we don't trot out this stuff as trophies. >> reporter: white house press secretary jay carnie read transcripts of president obama's 60-minutes interview explaining the decision. >> it's important for us to make sure that very graphic photos of somebody shot in the head are not floating around as an incitement to additional violence or a propaganda tool. that is not who we are. >> reporter: some in congress are split between those who say the photos would prove bin laden's death and others who say the pictures might spark violence. >> my initial opinion is that it's not necessary to do so. i think there is ample proof that this was osama bin laden. >> certainly, the cia director believes they ought to be released and i tend to agree with the director. >> reporter: but trying to
5:01 pm
counter conspiracy theorists can be a never-ending effort. >> there are some people out there not going to be that osama bin laden is dead. >> there is the concern no matter what we show the world, people won't believe that it was bin laden or that we doctored the photo. >> reporter: while bin laden's photos will remain secret, others say releasing the dna data proving his identity should be released later. >> think the dna evidence being release side an alternative that could be compelling and persuasive to some people. >> reporter: for now, osama bin laden's last image will be left to the world's imagination. senior administration officials say in all there were three sets of photos over osama bin laden's body taken. all of them were take know by u.s. forces, laura? >> there appears to be a growing diplomatic problem between pakistan and the u.s. over bin laden. how big of a risk is this? >> well, publicly, they're trying to downplay this, laura. the white house press secretary jay carnie said the
5:02 pm
relationship between the united states is important and complicated. behind the scenes, though, there are a vast amount of questions. how long did bin laden live in that house? at what point and did pakistani officials know that he was there and how could he exist in a town which, by all means, has been the pakistani equivalent of west point, new york, one of the top military academies in that country. a lot of it is not adding up for senior white house officials tonight. and there are going to be tough questions for their pakistani counterparts in the days ahead. >> congress is going to look at it as well. tom fitzgerald, thank you. former president george w. bush will not visit ground zero tomorrow with president obama. the white house said that president obama invited him to join in but was turned down. the former president is expected to visit ground zero later this fall on the 10th anniversary of the attacks. president obama will meet tomorrow with first responders and victim's family members. with the president's
5:03 pm
announcement, the white house will not release photos of bin laden. we invite you to log on to facebook and tell us if it's the right call, you think, not to release the death photos of osama bin laden. tammy cook writes smart. glad to know someone at the white house is paying attention. a. michelle basil writes of course not. it was not him. please, we're not stupid. remember, you can post your comments as well. there are a lot of them. we might put some of them on the air. now that osama bin laden's dead, there are questions about the u.s.'s continued role in afghanistan. retired u.s. air force colonel cedric layton has 26 years of experience as an intelligence officer. thank you for joining us. >> my pleasure, shawn. >> we know bin laud 18 death reignited the debate about how long the 100 u.s. troops should rea 19 -- 100,000 troops should remain in afghanistan. how long do you think they
5:04 pm
should stay there? >> well, i think the big problem is that if you move into a place like this, you own it. and it's what collin powell h when you break it, you own it, when it came to iraq. afghanistan is a complicated place and the big problem with afghanistan is that we need to make sure that we can at least have a viable government that keeps the taliban from re- emerges in that country. if it does, that it emerges in a fashion that is more conducive to u.s. interests. >> and talk about the taliban. there are recent reports that say the taliban is dismantled or not. there are certainly far less there and al qaeda, certainly far less in afghanistan. so, lawmakers are saying we can better spend the money we're using to fund the war at home and bringing troops home for 19 days early, would fund all the programs cut out of the last budget. would there be problems if we pulled the troops out right now? >> yes, because pakistan is unstable and, although we're
5:05 pm
talking about afghanistan, the instability in pakistan that we see with the whole bin laden escapade, what we're dealing with there is an instability that will spread from one country to the other and afghanistan is not quite ready yet to take our people away, so for us to take our people away n. this particular case, we need to stay maybe a year or so and don't tell anyone that that is what we're going to do. >> osama bin laden was found in pakistan and there are now concerns this might spread. we have some factions of al qaeda popping up outside of afghanistan. you look at yemen and other places. should the military be dividing up where the troops are instead of having 100,000 troops there in afghanistan? >> i think that might be a very valid point, shawn. what we're dealing with here, we tend to move people in masses and instead of using precision forces like we did with osama bin laden and with other terrorist leaders, we, perhaps, have to continue to learn the lessons of the new kind of war feand what that means is smaller forces,
5:06 pm
smaller footprints and we have to get to a point where we can also do things with individual people and convince the hearts and minds to use an overused phrase, that we're here to help them and not to hurt them. and that is basically what it boils down to. >> and that debate will continue. retired u.s. air force colonel cedric layton, thank you very much for coming in tonight. >> thank you, shawn. president obama is enjoying a sharp rise in popularity from bin laden's death n. a "new york times"-cbs news poll conducted tuesday, 57% approved of the job performance compared to 46% last month and that is despite the fact that more than 60% believed that killing bip laden is likely to -- bin laden is likely to increase the threat of terrorism against the united states. a gas explosion leveled this home in rockville here with a blast so powerful, it threw two people in the house out of it. scattered debris everywhere into the trees, on nearby rooftops. fox 5s sherri ly is live with the latest on this story. >> reporter: shawn, the two people who were in the house
5:07 pm
survived but it's touch and go tonight for one of them. you can get a sense of the magnitude of the explosion when you take a look at this. it was obliterated and the houses on both sides are also damaged. if you look in the tree way back there, you can see pieces of the house up in the treetops. the fire investigators now say that a gas line that was leaking for hours caused the explosion. >> it was gone in an instant. >> reporter: the loud boom shook houses like an earthquake. neighbors ran outside. the house that once stood there was now burning rubble. >> you can hear the hissing of the propane and the fire burning. >> few people knew a couple moved in days ago. >> i was like there's people in there. and then i heard ned saying we found them, you know, they're alive. >> reporter: next door, ned's house also on fire, ran to search for his missing neighbors. the man was wandering the backyard calling for his wife
5:08 pm
and then he saw her next to the azalea bushes on the ground. blown some 20 feet from the house. >> she was just asking for help, you know, and i was with 911 on the phone and she was saying help me, help me. i can't breathe. >> reporter: fire investigators blame a faulty do-it-yourself job. the man was converting from a gas to electric drier but he did not have all the right tools to finish and left the gas line open. >> i went to bed at night. at that point, we believe that that gas was leaking throughout the night and found the ignition source and that home exploded. >> reporter: this is in pieces of the house big and small and landed 50 yards away in all directions. half a football field. a door stuck to a tree, flying pieces of wood pierced neighboring houses and blew out windows. across the street, the blast broke the rafters in her roof. >> most of the roof landed in
5:09 pm
my front yard. the glass was blown out of my front bay window and my front door glass. >> reporter: neighbors barely knew the couple and now they praying that they will pull through. >> i hope they're okay. i hope they're okay. >> the couple remains in the hospital tonight and the man is expected to survive. and the woman, however, has serious life-threatening injuries. based on interviews, fire officials tell us that the couple did smell the odor of gas in the house and some time during the night before the explosion and they did nothing, laura? >> it's a wound no one outside in the neighborhood was injured as well. nobody was? >> nobody, laura. there is just some damage to the houses on the side across the street. several houses also have blown out windows. the fire department estimates the damage at about $750,000, most of it obviously is the house that is right behind me. >> boy, and there is nothing

5:15 pm
clarksburg, maryland, are new and improved. the widening here is part of the development deal that led to the construction of thousands of new homes. but amid all the density, a part of springtown road narrows to two lanes and dips and curves to extreme -- the dips and curves occurring in both directions. at 8:45 a.m., two school buses travelling opposite ways, apparently clipped each other in this narrow, curvy part of the roadway, driving one of the buses off the road and into a tree. the clarksburg resident came running when he heard multiple sirens and saw first responders swarming the scene. >> they were taking kids from the bus into rescue squads and off to the local hospital. >> approximately two dozen children on the smash bus were headed to nearby little bennett elementary school. there were no children on the other bus. the school finishes say none of the injuries but the 10 children and two drivers transported appear to be serious. >> and it sounds like the bus drivers in this case, you know,
5:16 pm
got the students taken care of, got them off the bus and made sure they were safe. that is what is important to us now. the students being safe. >> reporter: as part of the development of clarksburg, almost all of springtown road is designated for widening. the builders say a tax district was supposed to pay. residents have fought the tax district successfully and want the developers to pay more most of the improvement. much of the issue is in litigation. >> we get fingers pointed in every direction but the direction that solves the problem. it's not our problem but their problem. it's their problem, our problem. it's your problem, it's his problem and her problem. we have been getting that for a long time. >> the county council's transportation committee approved $900,000 to design improvements for springtown road. >> now, raising string town road in that area and smoothing the curves building expensive. it would cost montgomery county about $9 million over a six-
5:17 pm
year period. >> and have police figured out what caused the buses to collide? >> the police cited the driver of the unoccupied school bus for failure to drive on the right of the center line. >> okay. thank you, john henrehan. the brady campaign to prevent gun violence is out with this year's state school board and that ranks the 50 state, the california scored 80 out of 100. new jersey, massachusetts, new york, connecticut, and hawaii ranked high on that list and about 30 other states only scored in the single digits. >> these are not things that should be controversial or hard to pass. basically, we looked at a number of areas. one, we want to curb trafficking and firearms. guns start out as part of the legal market, and some states take steps to help prevent those from going to from the legal market to the illegal market and they do things like strongly regulate the gun dealers, limiting the numbers of guns you can buy at one
