"I met repeatedly with my National Security team as we developed more information about the possibility that we had located Bin Laden thrashing within a compound deep inside Pakistan," Obama said in an address from the East Room of the White House Sunday night."in conclusion, last week I determined that we had enough cleverness to take action and authorized an operation to get Osama bin Laden and bring him to justice," Obama said.
