Obama watched live video of Osama hit


Dramatic pictures have been released of US President Barack Obama watching live footage of the operation that killed Osama bin Laden.

Photographs issued by the White House show the president and other members of his team looking tense as they watch live video of the mission as it happened.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is shown with a particularly anxious expression, with both her hands clasped over her mouth.

US chief counter-terrorism advisor John Brennan was also among those viewing the footage.

Brennan: "It was probably one of the most anxiety-filled periods of time. It was clearly very tense, a lot of people were holding their breath.

"There was a fair degree of silence as the operation progressed.

"Minutes passed like days and the President was concerned about security of his personnel."

He added that a "tremendous sigh of relief" came in response to confirmation that Bin Laden was among those found in the compound.

Asked how Obama reacted when he received the news that bin Laden had been killed, Brennan recalled that the president said, "We got him."

Now if this is the case then we all would want to see that video in which Osama Bin Laden is killed so we could analyse it and draw conclusions. If Osama Bin Laden is killed then why US kept things so ambiguous? His body should have been shown to the media. When they hanged Saddam Hussain, they made videos of it and were shown to public. Why not in the case of Osama Bin Laden?
