Hillary Clinton Gives Play-By-Play Of Day Bin Laden Was Killed

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave a keynote address at the U.S. Naval Academy on Tuesday, where she spoke about Syria, North Korea, and the death of Osama bin Laden, reports ABC News:

As she gave a play-by-play account of the day Bin Laden was killed, she recalled how none of the officials in the room watching the operation, including President Obama, “could breathe for 30-35 minutes.”

Clinton also shared how moved she was when she saw the spontaneous gathering of young people, mostly college students, at the gates of the White House as Obama announced Bin Laden’s death. She reflected on what that announcement meant to those constituents who lost so much on 9/11.
