AP ^ | May 8, 2011

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama ordered the commando raid that killed terrorist leader Osama bin Laden after deciding the risks were outweighed by the possibility "of us finally getting our man" following a decade of frustration, he said in a Sunday broadcast interview. The helicopter raid "was the longest 40 minutes of my life," Obama told CBS' "60 Minutes," with the possible exception of when his daughter Malia became sick with meningitis as an infant.

This was a military action, not a civil matter.

Yeh especially since he didn’t know about it until they pulled him off the golf course and stuck him in front of a TV. LOL!

I think that George Bush had the kill order in an executive order that GHO could not break. There were probably contingency plans in place within months after 911.

Obama played golf as US special forces prepared to kill bin Laden

President Obama, it turns out, is by far the most golf-mad of all the Presidents in history. Yesterday, the President was playing the 66th round of his presidency, and his fifth round in five weeks, as US special forces prepared to move in on bin Laden...

I will allow Obama his 40 minutes of glory.

The history books in the near future will tell many a different story, and many an America have put on the Anti-Obama glasses and we can see clearly now.

real Americans know the democrat is weak on security, zer0 had to say go. The CIA in the safe house, CIA at home directing them, Military, had to be 100. They had the muzzie, if he said no, they might of gone on ahead and killed him anyways.
Hard core Patriots of this Great Nation, find a way. zer0 is finding this out.

It would seem there is one American that has benefited from the depraved existence of UBL.

I ordered the OBL hit. I directed the SEAL team. I got OBL. I I I I I I I I I I I.

He’s still going on and on about himself, which means he really didn’t accomplish any of these claims. He’s trying to convince us and himself. Puppet man.

President Barack Obama ordered the commando raid --- Obama probably was not the writer of this statement. Probably every statement attributed to him is written by someone else for him as is his teleprompter speeches.

I really don’t think nobama was at the golf course that fateful day...I believe nobama piloted a stealth AF1 to Pakistan where he personally strangled osama to death. Yea...that’s the ticket for this macho-man, nobama.

Guess what?

You're an idiot!

Did you know that many FReepers, including myself, are Ex-Military?

We know what goes down in a kill situation like this. It's the Soldier, Marine or Navy Seal on the ground who lays his life on the line, through Superior training and American know-how!

This operation had NOTHING to do with 0bama, other than he is the president, and I use that term lightly!

Yes, I'm glad UBL is dead, but try to put in perspective WHO killed him!

The United States Military!

It sickens me, however, that 0bama is basking in the Military's Glory!

That is more plausible — the teleprompter called for OBL’s offing.

with the possible exception of when his daughter became sick with meningitis as an infant.

Guy is a complete *HOLE placing his political future at the same level as his child’s health.

Actually, I prefer UBL was brought to military trial in Gitmo.

It is almost as if he were saying that the death of OBL was as sad as the potential of his daughter dying. Interesting. I would have been worried about the safety of the warriors but still knowing that they had been trained for this and not cared a wit about OBL.
