However, as a patriotic nationalist, I'd give Obama my approval for having provided the leadership that killed that enemy of the United States.

My understanding is that they had asked for permission to launch operations to take bin Laden down a half-dozen times, and Obama said no. Finally an opportunity came up and they launched the operation, and then told Obama - after copters were in the air. He would have had to cancel action already in progress to save bin Laden, and even he saw how bad that would look to Americans.
