George W. Bush Gives First Public Reaction to Osama Bin Laden Death

May 13, 2011
Former President George W. Bush made his first candid public comments on the killing of Osama bin Laden during an appearance Wednesday at a conference of hedge fund managers in Las Vegas.

"I was eating souffle at Rise Restaurant with Laura and two buddies," Bush said when asked what he was doing when he received the call from President Obama, according to an ABC News contributor who attended the event.

"I excused myself and went home to take the call," Bush said. "Obama simply said 'Osama Bin Laden is dead.'"

Bush said Obama described in detail the secret mission to raid bin Laden's Pakistani compound and the decision he made to put the plan into motion. He told Obama, "Good call."

The 43rd president and man who initiated the hunt for bin Laden after the 9/11 attacks has shied from the spotlight since news broke nearly two weeks ago. Bush has declined interview requests and Obama's invitation to join him at Ground Zero to meet with victims' families and first responders four days after the raid.

But appearing before the crowd of 1,800 at the glitzy Bellagio resort and casino, Bush appeared light-hearted and relaxed in talking about bin Laden's death.

When asked by forum moderator Melissa Lee of CNBC how he felt upon learning the news, Bush said he was "not overjoyed," explaining that the campaign to track down the 9/11 mastermind was done not "out of hatred but to exact judgment."

The development is ultimately a victory for the American people, he said.

"The guy is dead. That is good," Bush said of bin Laden. "Osama's death is a great victory in the war on terror. He was held up as a leader."

"The intelligence services deserve a lot of credit. They built a mosaic of information, piece by piece," he said, claiming no credit for himself.

"I met SEAL Team Six in Afghanistan. They are awesome, skilled, talented and brave," he added. "I said, 'I hope you have everything you need. One guy said, 'We need your permission to go into Pakistan and kick ass.'"
(I love these guys!!!)
Bush said U.S. foreign policy needs to continue to promote the ideas of democracy and freedom as a way to combat global terrorism.

"The long-term solution is to promote a better ideology, which is freedom. Freedom is universal," Bush said. "People who do not look like us want freedom just as much. The relatives of [former Secretary of State]Condoleezza Rice over 100 years ago wanted freedom. It is only when you do not have hope in a society that you join a suicide bomber team."

GW Bush was correct in not claiming credit for himself. GWB had 8 years to track down bin laden and could not do it. It was the Obama administration that deserves the credit. koodos to Obama for not rubbing Bush's nose in it. Oh, and didn't President Obama make the first call to GW Bush to inform him that bin laden was dead???????????? What a class act.;-)

I did like that interview, Stan. Too bad we still have the likes of Roger, "the pathetic" to throw dog $hit on it. How proud the libs must be to have him among their ilk.

Gosh Roger,
How can you be so full of hate.
Don't you worry about how it will affect your health?
It is not amusing if it is just for show.
I try not to be a jump on the wagon and follow the crowd type.
But at times the stuff you type is about as welcome as a rash in a spot you cant see.
I am growing ever so weary of it. I hope you change.

It was the Obama administration that deserves the credit.

Wrong -- It was the combined efforts of various Intelligence agencies.

Quite correct, Doc. Here's another view from an unknown contributor.

Quote of the year...



"Thanking Obama for killing Bin Laden is like going into McDonalds and thanking Ronald McDonald for the hamburger. It's the guy cooking the burger that should get the credit, not the clown."

In the past, lots of folks always said, "Military Intelligence" was an oxymoron.
I (personally) know better.

Very sad Roger - tsk, tsk. At least many have sacrificed for your right of repugnant diatribe.

Wow!!!! Roger, I am really concerned about you. Did you have a troubled childhood? Did a teacher use red ink to correct your papers? Did they actually keep score at your ball games? Did your P.E. teacher make you play dodgeball?????

Seriously, there are several good psychiatrists in the Port St. Lucie area. Before you give yourself a heart attack, you may want to give one of them a call.

Everything in life is not someone else's fault. George Bush did not piss in your Wheaties this morning!!!
