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.

I'll bet, probably because you missed your tee time.
stupid me, I thought it was still against the law to be judge,jury and executor..
The man has no shame.
This was a military action, not a civil matter.
Not a word about worry for our hero SEALs.
This man is a psychopath
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!
GHO should be BHO
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.
poop stain wants All to believe He Alone pulled this off
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.
not many days left for zer0, November
It would seem there is one American that has benefited from the depraved existence of UBL.
I agree. Obama is the blind squirrel that found a nut. it happens, but not often.
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.
Um, which American would that be?
You people sound darned well pis@ed off that bin Laden’s dead. Methinks politics mean more to you than getting the creep.
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.
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.
