The post image is added to the gallery for the post that is created. There is no way to directly add it to the body because there is no way to know how you want it added to the body, what markup should be used, where it should go, how it should be aligned, etc.
Posts that are created are designed to be moderated and approved before published. It is during this step where you can insert the image directly into the body if you want.
Or you can do it dynamically place it without manually inserting by calling in the first post image in the post template theme file using PHP.
A future release will introduce the ability to configure the post body output so that you can insert uploaded images into the body, but this isn't available just yet.
