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
"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.
