A spokeswoman for Ruppersberger says he is planning to view the photos at CIA headquarters in Langley, Va., Wednesday or Thursday.

The Democratic congressman is a member of the House Intelligence Committee. All of the committee's members are among the congressional representatives who have been offered a chance to view the photographs.

Ruppersberger has said he agrees with the White House decision not to publicly release the photos of bin Laden's body. He says the photos could stoke anger among bin Laden supporters.

The congressman also says the decision not to release the photographs to the public could be re-evaluated down the road.
