Unbelievable: Obama had to "sleep on it" before deciding to get Osama bin Laden

This was a difficult choice for President Obama? How long do you think it would have taken former President George W. Bush?

The Daily Mail reported:

Barack Obama kept military commanders hanging by declaring he would ‘sleep on it’ before taking 16 hours to give the go-ahead to raid Bin Laden’s compound.

Hit squads of specialist Navy Seals – who were not even told who they were preparing to capture – had practiced the mission at two reconstructions of the terror chiefs sprawling compound.

The mission looked set to be given the all clear last Thursday when analysts confirmed beyond doubt that Bin Laden was in busy town of Abbottabad in northern Pakistan.

But the president stunned officials when he told a national security meeting that he wanted more time to think – and disappeared out of the room.

‘I’m not going to tell you what my decision is now – I’m going to go back and think about it some more,’
said Obama, according to the New York Times. He then added ‘I’m going to make a decision soon.’

Hey All,

I'll take a small leap and state that IF Obama could have voted "present", he would have.
