60 Minutes aired the interview Steve Kroft conducted with President Obama on Wednesday at the White House in which the Commander-in-Chief discussed the successful mission to kill Osama bin Laden.
"I felt very strongly there was a strategic imperative to go after him," the President said even though he admitted they had no photograph and no direct evidence of bin Laden's presence.

I was not involved with designing the initial plan but each iteration they'd bring to me, make a full presentation, we would ask questions.

getting carried away with himself. lies lies lies.

I would be very surprised if this guys IQ was over 90,the worst president and the dumbest all rolled into one.
He’s Chauncey Gardner, “Being There” in the situation room.
That may well be true. Let others do the moths of planning, work and putting it all on the line, make a last-minutes, long-delayed, half-@ssed decision on what is best for election purposes but most importantly show up in front of the teleprompter and cameras to take the credit and add to his self-narrative.
Your tag line is spot on.
I am no fan of Hillary Clinton. But if the truth gets out. I think she is running and this bas**rd is LBJ out.
Here’s a pleasant thought. There’s a remote possibility OBL will wind up in a can of tuna fish.

roflol which means he was golfing or eating ice cream.
Those and vacationing seem to be the only activities he actively pursues.
As my TX husband would say, “all hat, no cattle”.
"I like to watch"
Did you leave out arrogant on purpose?
His bowels were more active than any role he might have played in planning this mission.
I’m getting a serious reoccurrence of GERD on this fine Mother’s Day. Ugh!
Nah. If he made it to the bottom, the hagfish got him.
