The White House today released this photo of a rapt national security team monitoring the raid on Osama bin Laden's Pakistan compound.

Today's White House press briefing, which featured John Brennan, Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counter-Terrorism, taking questions about the weekend raid, AFTER THE JUMP...

Also, Politico has an especially detailed blow-by-blow account of what went down. And Raw Story has a list of five of the most bizarre GOP reactions to the news of Bin Laden's death including Republican Congressman Joe Scarborough's assertion that Obama's base didn't want this, Steve King's (IA) assertion that this vindicates waterboarding, and Donald Rumsfeld's assertion that Bush deserves the credit.

  1. BC, the silly part is when you self-righteously accuse others of being partisan (saying I'm on the "far left," for example, when you know nothing about me) while only posting partisan comments on TR. Sorry, it's funny.

    If people want to give Bush some credit, they can go right ahead, but when a capture that eluded President Bush for 7 years happens on another President's watch, the other President (and the armed forces he commands) will naturally take and deserve the lion's share of the credit. It's political (i.e. adult) reality. If this had happened during a Republican presidency, you can be sure the Republicans (like yourself) would not be giving the Democrats standing ovations.
