Trump -- who was just shredded by Obama at the White House Correspondents dinner -- just issued a statement on Twitter saying, "I want to personally congratulate President Obama and the men and women of the Armed Forces for a job very well done."

He added, "I am so proud to see Americans standing shoulder to shoulder, waving the American flag in celebration of this great victory."

Trump concluded, "We should spend the next several days not debating party politics, but in remembrance of those who lost their lives on 9/11 and those fighting for our freedom. God Bless America."

To those trying to discredit Obama, what does Commander & Chief mean? To my knowledge, the military does what the president says/orders and btw, they have been having meetings about this for months with the president about how to best handle this situation and it worked since none of the soldiers lost their life, and the one who died (osama) frankly deserved it. Like it or not HE (Obama) had a lot to do with this.

Nothing in politics happen by accident. If this mission went awry (think Carter and the hostage incident), Obama would have destroyed his presidency. Obama would have taken the FULL blame. Not his advisors nor his military. So you MUST give him the credit on the mission accomplished. If you know anything about how our government works, these types of missions always go through the President.

ALL HAIL TO THE CHIEF, President Obama, and THANK YOU to the special ops who executed the plan and succeed in taking down Bin Laden!

President Obama made a brilliant decision by making sure a special ops elite team killed BinLaden and then taking the body to process, collect and test DNA for proof rather than bombing the hell out of the compound and never knowning 100% whether Bin Laden was actually killed. Intricate intelligent planning made this as successful a mission as it was.

Years ago, I wondered.. with such talented and intelligent special ops like the Navy Seals..why couldn't we send men to seek and kill BinLaden secretly? Are we not supposed to be one of if not the most powerful country in the world with an incredible military?

My questions have now been answered thanks to Obama. Give credit where credits due, folks. All those involved in the raid from top down deserve our thanks including President Obama.

Sure wish these posters would use spellcheck. Congrats to President Obama, military operatives and all involved in bringing this ******* to justice. Will wait for the "spin doctors" to minimize the President's leadership once again by virtue of his skin color.

WOW! WHOA! WHOA! You REALLY need to calm down! Now since I am the ONLY one who can post rationally I will.

The reason PRESIDENT Obama did NOT want to use the stealth bomb like you want; this would have meant harming those who HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH why the military was there: TO KILL OBL. Just because people live in a country the US does not like doesn't mean they are all bad.

Seeming like PRESIDENT Obama was correct in his INTELLIGENT thinking because the person the military wanted to killed...OBL is the one who was eliminated as well as any of his follower; and NOT people who did not deserved to be hurt.

Last as far as your "PUT THAT IN YOUR PIPE AND SMOKE IT" remark,
Really!....No Really! If that is ALL you have.....I am soooo NOT worried.

Let's be clear on this: OBAMA did NOT kill Bin Laden. An American soldier, who Obama just a few weeks ago was debating on whether or not to PAY, did. Obama just happened to be the one in office when our soldiers finally found Osama and took him out. This is NOT an Obama victory, but an… AMERICAN victory!
