    WASHINGTON — Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Lindsey Graham, old-style politicians who wear their emotions on their sleeves, traveled the world together when Biden served in the Senate. Graham, a South Carolina Republican, guessed why Biden might be calling him at home on a Sunday night. "Did we get the bastard?" Graham asked. "We got him!" a jubilant Biden responded. (snip) Graham...asked Biden to extend his congratulations to President Barack Obama. "I said, 'Please tell the president that all of us appreciate his persistence when it comes to being aggressive along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border and going after bin Laden,'"...

    BHO's statement contained 74 sentences. In 24 out of 74 sentences, he said "I", "me" or "my." This is not about the military, or even the CIA, which were mentioned in just 4 of the sentences. It's about BHO, and BHO alone. Congratulations, BHO, here are a few things for which you took credit in the 74 sentences: "I directed Leon Panetta... to make the killing or capture of bin Laden the top priority..." "I was briefed on a possible lead to bin Laden." "I met repeatedly with my national security team as we developed more information about the possibility...

    Osama Bin Laden came to the world's attention on 11 September 2001, when the attacks on the United States left more than 3,000 people dead and hundreds more injured. In a matter of three years, the Saudi-born dissident had emerged from obscurity to become one of the most hated and feared men in the world. Osama Bin Laden was born in 1957, apparently the 17th of 52 children of Mohamed Bin Laden, a multimillionaire builder responsible for 80% of Saudi Arabia's roads. His father's death in a helicopter crash in 1968 brought the young man a fortune running into many...
