The Death of Bin Laden: Public Relations Vs. National Security

President Obama is being praised for his decision to take out Bin Laden. But seriously, who WOULDN'T make that call? The decisions he's made since the successful raid are the true measures of his leadership.

If I'd been President, I'd have hid the death of Bin Laden for as long as possible. I'd use a cover-story for the raid and implore/threaten the Pakistani government to go along with it. I'd use the intel from Osama's computers to take down the rest of Al-Qaeda before they even knew what hit them. I would not sacrifice national security for a PR event.
