61. It wouldn't have taken that long and that much money if Bushie had the balls to make a decision back
in October/November 2001 when they had him surrounded and wounded in the mountains of Tora Bora.

The US Special Forces reported they had him pinned down and requested authorization to "take him out". Such authorization could only come from the POTUS back then.

Bush took too long, and 3 hours later, Bin Laden escaped to Pakistan.

In Sunday's special forces operation in Pakistan, President Obama told them to capture or kill him, no uncertain terms. He pre-authorized them to do whatever it took to end it there.
