BOSTON (AP) – U.S. Sen. Scott Brown is praising President Obama for hunting down and killing Osama bin Laden.
Brown said the terrorist leader had chosen his fate in a life filled with cruelty.
The Massachusetts Republican made his remarks in the GOP response to the president’s weekly address.
Typically the response is used to fault the Democratic president or offer an alternative view, but in his comments Brown credits Obama for acting “calmly, swiftly, and decisively” in ordering the raid on bin Laden’s Pakistan compound.
Brown also credited former President Bush for vowing to hunt down the masterminds of the Sept. 11 attacks.
But Brown saved his highest praise for the “skill and raw courage” of the military.
While bin Laden is dead, Brown said the nation’s mission in Afghanistan continues.

    Strangely, he didn’t mention his claim that he had been briefed and seen pictures of the dead Bil Laden.

      Nor has Obama mentioned that the leads that eventually led to the capture/assassination of Bin Laden came from water boarding and other enhanced interrogation techniques used on Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and information provided by detainees at GITMO which would no longer be possible if Obama followed through on his own executive order to close it.
