Wish I would have done it: Clinton on Osama raids

Washington: To bolster US President Barack Obama`s image ahead of Presidential election, the Obama Campaign has come up with a video featuring former President Bill Clinton praising Obama`s handling of the raid on Osama bin Laden`s compound last year.

"He took the harder, and the more honorable path. When I
saw what had happened, I thought to myself, `I hope that`s the
call I would`ve made," Clinton says in the video released by
the Obama Campaign.

It was among the toughest decisions Obama would make as
Commander-in-Chief and a victory for the nation, the Obama
Campaign said in a statement releasing the video footage which
is part of the "The Road We`ve Traveled" which would be
released March 15.

This one minute 10 seconds video footage highlights
Obama`s decision to authorise the operation that killed Osama
bin Laden.

"Entire national security apparatus was in that room. The
President turns to every principle in the room, what do you
recommend I do? And they say, it`s a close call Mr President.
As he walked out of the room, he is all alone, this is his
decision," says the Vice President, Joe Biden.
