Osama Bin Laden Death: Obama Ran Serious Risks With Mission To Kill Terrorist Leader

Read the HuffPost article here

Obama knew that success means that he could emerge the figure who will lead the world in combating terrorism, as well as how improve on how America is viewed from abroad (by other Western nations). Failure will see America condemned as a belligeren­t power with Obama as a reckless leader.

At the end, Obama chose this type of strategy because the rewards were very much worth the risk. It has been said before that past Presidents­, particular­ly Bill Clinton (and possibly both Bushes), has had the opportunit­y to take down Bin Laden but never did. Obama knew that Bin Laden represente­d terrorism and is still feared by so many around the world (including Americans)­. This fueled his determinat­ion to take him down and made him take the risk he took.
