Bush: Killing bin Laden a 'Good Call'

Former President George W. Bush has opened up about his reaction to Osama bin Laden's death. "I was eating a soufflé at Rise Restaurant with Laura and two buddies" when President Obama called with the news, Bush said at a conference of hedge-fund managers in Las Vegas on Wednesday. During the conversation, he told Obama, "Good call... The guy is dead. That is good." But he added that he was "not overjoyed" by the news, and that he firmly believed the ploy to assassinate bin Laden was not done "out of hatred but to exact judgment."
