Appearing on CNN’s Fareed Zakaria GPS, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said both George W. Bush and President Barack Obama deserved credit for the operation that killed Osama Bin Laden.
“Now it is absolutely the case that the United States of America has been fighting this war for at least ten years, and really a bit longer,” she said. “And so this is a victory across presidencies. It’s a – it’s a victory for having learned more how to fight the counter terrorism fight. But there’s no doubt that as President Bush had to make some very, very hard calls that frankly helped to set this up, President Obama had to make some very difficult calls to bring it to conclusion.”
