Obama Defends OBL Program

President Obama pushed back at criticism that he is using the May 2 anniversary of Osama bin Laden’s death for political gain. “I hardly think you’ve seen any excessive celebration taking place here,” Obama said Monday. Obama will be in a primetime special about the raid on Wednesday, and has suggested that Mitt Romney would not have ordered the assault.  A Romney spokesperson responded, saying: "It's unfortunate that President Obama would prefer to use what was a good day for all Americans as a cheap political ploy and an opportunity to distort Gov. Romney's strong policies on the war on terror.”
