Osama Bin Laden Death
The shock of Bin Laden’s death came to many when the headlines broke on CNN. Perhaps even more shocking was the celebration worthy victory that many were making it out to be.
Some breathed a sigh of relief, while others wondered how a country founded on justice could find anything celebratory about a man’s death.
60 Minutes sat down with our president and got his views on the entire situation. His view on the matter could be summed up with this quote,
“As nervous as I was about this whole process, the one thing I didn’t lose sleep over was the possibility of taking bin Laden out. Justice was done. And I think that anyone who would question that the perpetrator of mass murder on American soil didn’t deserve what he got needs to have their head examined.”
Obama also spoke on maintaining privacy over the situation and his decision not to release photos of Bin Laden’s dead body.
“I didn’t tell most people here in the White House. I didn’t tell my own family. It was that important for us to maintain operational security… If I’m not revealing to some of my closest aides what we’re doing then I sure as heck am not going to be revealing it to folks who I don’t know.”
He continues, “It is important for us to make sure that very graphic photos of somebody who was shot in the head are not floating around as an incitement to additional violence. As a propaganda tool. You know, that’s not who we are. You know, we don’t trot out this stuff as trophies.”
