Default Bin Laden mission was risky business for Obama

The nail-biting, 40-minute clandestine operation that resulted in Osama bin Laden's death could have been a calamitous political and military failure; a bloodbath in Pakistan that left U.S. forces and scores of civilians dead or captured by America's most ferocious enemy. Or, as it happened, it could unfold largely in textbook fashion delivering a stunning success for the often maligned intelligence community, a political and national security coup for a struggling president and revenge for Americans still carrying vivid memories of Sept. 11. By secretly sending a team of special operations forces into an enemy fortress in a suburban neighborhood of a sovereign country, President Barack Obama chose the path of greatest risk, but also greatest reward. There were so many ways it could have gone wrong. As U.S. officials evaluated their options, Obama asked for a gut check from top members of his national security team. source:
