Bush Officials: Good Job Obama, but…

From CNN:

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld applauded the successful mission to kill Osama bin Laden under the Obama administration, but also highlighted the pivotal role their team played in the search for America’s most wanted terrorist. “It was also important that President Bush put in place counterterrorism strategies and policies, efforts that the military and intelligence have been making over the years,” Rice told CNN’s “American Morning” on Tuesday. “To work together better to achieve that kind of level of integration didn’t happen yesterday. This is something that has been happening for quite a long time.”

Rice said that the discovery of bin Laden’s whereabouts was made possible by intelligence gathered during the Bush administration, pointing to how the roundup of al Qaeda field generals such as Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in 2003 and Abu Faraj al Libi in 2005, helped provide the link to bin Laden’s courier, who ultimately lead C.I.A operatives to the compound where bin Laden was staying.
