Obama thanks, awards team in bin Laden raid
Obama thanks, awards team in bin Laden raid
'Job well done,' president tells them during Fort Campbell visit


After private meetings with those who took part in the raid on Osama bin Laden, President Barack Obama on Friday greets troops at Fort Campbell, Ky.

FORT CAMPBELL, Kentucky President Barack Obama on Friday was briefed by members of the team that killed Osama bin Laden, and afterward thanked and awarded them the Presidential Unit Citation, the White House said.

The award "is the highest such honor that can be given to a unit," the White House said in a statement, and was "in recognition of their extraordinary service and achievement."

The president and Vice President Joe Biden visited with team members at Fort Campbell, home to the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, which participated in the raid.

During the briefing, Obama and Biden were shown maps, photos and a scale model of the compound, a senior official told NBC News.

8. These must be special...
...handpicked, unpatriotic troops serving as lackeys for the thug-in-chief. Or something along those lines.

16. Best thing is to go back to your graduate seminar and stay put.
This kind of talk only works when you're at the bar with a few peers who are in your department. Fails bigtime in the real world.

17. I cannot decide if this post is trollish, or simply insane. Either way, IBTDP (In before the deleted

Better hurry, though. You ain't long for the DUniverse.

23. They are trained to suppress their emotions. But the thing that got me was how lilly white the crowd
was. The only black person I saw in the picture was president Obama.
