    We will shortly know. But we know Bush couldn't do this in 7 years, sidetracking our efforts into Iraq, but it finally happened in the first part of Obama's third year, during his "watch" so he gets some of the credit. We'll see how much direct credit he can actually claim.

    This is a good thing to celebrate. The fact you are going to try to use this as a means to beat on George W. Bush shows the hate you have.

    But enough about small minds and big egos, this is a GREAT DAY!

    I cant believe people are actually trying to give Obama credit for this and not Bush !! What a joke, If it was up to Obama, America would not even be in Afghanistan. And second, this did not happen overnight. It took years of intelligence. And third , in realty, no matter who was President, the reults of the hard work of our military would have been the same

    Excuse me, but this should have, and could have happened about 9 years ago, except some NeoCons trumped up reasons to go to a pre Bush election planned war with Iraq, (they had tried to convince Clinton to do it but failed). Nearly all the attention was put on that unnecessary war for "OUR OIL INTERESTS", so Bin Laden got away.

    The US NeoCon Leaders fucked up and who knows how many innocent civilians died in the process of chasing Bin Laden back and forth accross the Pakistani/Afghanistan border over the last 9 years.!!!

    That was dumb. He was in Pakistan not Afghanistan. They are our ally we would never bomb them. So yes we had no business in Afghanistan bombing them, and how funny that this happened 8 years to the day that Bush declared "Mission Accomplished".

    One is not going to gloat over the death of another. I myself feel indifferent right now. Sure he did some bad things in our eyes concerning 9/11. But at the same time, many Muslims still look at the crusades in the same way many may see 9/11.

    But he did not do it on his own, as the Crusades were never a one man show. So thus there is another to step up and fill his shoes, and they may be even more fundamental.

    It's just a matter of luck that this come to pass during the Obama administration. Obama will not be able to stop this war.

    As commander in chief, he should get credit. Along with the entire armed forces, intelligences involved..... If something went wrong, you would be just as quick to discredit him.

    I totally disagree!

    Obama and our military deserve full credit for this. They found him on HIS watch. If two people were looking for an Easter egg, and the second person found it, do you give credit to the first person because they looked longer and started looking earlier? This is about lost and found of a moving object.

    The announcement also cut off the last 10 minutes or so of Celebrity Apprentice. The Donald will not be pleased. icon_lol.gif

    But Obama never had to deal with the devastation of 9/11, or the hysteria, or Hollywood demanding he do something to make them feel safe to travel again. By the time Obama took over most of the hard ground work had been done, and you can't credit Obama for that.

    Thank you! that's how its always been when credit is to be given. .... He could have easily found someway to mess it up but It happened on his first term and his watch.... Call it whatever you want Haters! He is going to get credit for it! and Re-elected!

    They're saying that the death of bin Laden was the result of "an extremely sensitive intelligence operation".
    Bush deserves NO credit for the operation.
    FYI - he left office over 2 YEARS AGO.
    The current and ongoing intelligence operations have nothing to do with Bush.
    But, nice try.

    And despite the desperate spinning we're seeing from our right-winger friends - the vast majority of American will rightly give credit to President Obama for this victory.

    Exactly! He is Commander in Chief he signs off on all the operations, secret or no! He deserves all the credit. He was in Pakistan! You though he was in Afghanistan.....so obviously you didnt even know where he was...
