According to another one of those White House briefings of reporters designed to suck up all available credit for good news, President Obama's homeland security advisor reveals that it was a really tense time in the air-conditioned White House as unidentified U.S. Navy SEALs closed in on the world's most wanted man after midnight a half a world away.
"Minutes passed like days," says John Brennan, who bravely stood with press secretary Jay Carney before reporters and TV cameras today chronicling his boss' weekend heroics.
The heavily-armed commandos flying in a quartet of darkened Blackhawk and Chinook helicopters more than 100 miles into Pakistan were probably listening to their iPods and discussing the NFL draft.
"The concern was that bin Laden would oppose any type of capture operation," said Obama's Sherlock Holmes. So U.S. troops were prepared "for all contingencies."
In fact, this weekend was such a tense time in the White House that Obama only got in nine holes of golf. But he still managed to deliver his joke script to the White House Correspondents Assn. dinner Saturday evening.

Obotulism will not get such praise from me. May God continue to curse his presidency.
Brennan has to be the biggest suck-up doofus since Lanny Davis.
he was the decider in chief after all and he bravely decided to send those soldiers into harms way. sound familiar?
All hail the King on his mighty war horse..leading the charge from an airconditioned bunker.
Believe me..all these Seals had been on lots of the missions before with equal risks and not as much reward. They have been in this fight for at least 4 or 5 deployments before they even get on this team. It was just another day at their office.
>> This is without a doubt Bush’s fault.
What do expect? Obama inherited the intel.
Says it all...
Where Osama and his boys went wrong...not enough women to hide behind.
Wasn’t this taken right out of a Jack Ryan movie? Was this from “Sum of all fears”?
What do you expect? Obama inherited the intel.
Listening to the plan and saying "go ahead" most likely cost him at least one golf outing.
Bravery beyond the pale augmented by the greatest of self sacrifice!
Obama should take credit.Clinton have him in the crosshairs and dropped the ball.
Wow, he found time to dine and party and yuk it up and alas ONLY 9 holes of golf while our brave Seals were preparing to go into the hideout of the world’s most wanted terrorist.
Don’t these tools know that their hero Zero looks even worse when one considers the scenario?
LOL wait until BaBa Walters et al media hacks see Obama’s poll numbers get maybe a 1 maybe 2 jump up in points on STRONGLY APPROVE
Show me the body!
