US raid to kill bin Laden was 'the longest 40 minutes of my life': Obama

London, Mon, 09 May 2011 ANI

London, May 9 (ANI): US President Barack Obama has described the US Navy Seals raid to kill Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden a week ago as "the longest 40 minutes of my life."


He further said that he and his top aides in the White House Situation Room had only patchy information on what was happening.


Obama told the CBS 60 Minutes that the only time he was more distressed was when his daughter Malia fell ill with meningitis.


In the White House they only "had a sense of when gunfire and explosions took place" at the bin Laden compound and when one of the US helicopters failed and made a hard landing, The Independent reports.


"We could not get information clearly about what was happening inside the compound," he said.


Obama also said he lost no sleep over the killing of the man responsible for 9/11 and added anyone harbouring qualms should "have their heads examined".


He also cast a doubting eye towards Pakistan, suggesting that bin Laden must have had "some kind of support network there."


"We don't know whether there might have been some people inside of government, outside of government, and that's something we have to investigate, and more importantly, the Pakistani government has to investigate," he said. (ANI)
