New Obama ad campaign suggests 'Romney would not have killed bin Laden'

   Apr 28, 12:18 pm

Washington, Apr 28 (ANI): US President Barack Obama's reelection campaign has released a new video that suggests that al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden would probably still be alive if Republican contender Mitt Romney had been president.

In the campaign advertisement released on Friday, Obama suggested Romney would have demurred if given the opportunity to kill Osama.

The campaign highlighted Romney's 2007 comment that it was "not worth moving heaven and earth and spending billions of dollars" to find the mastermind of 9/11.

According to The Telegraph, former president Bill Clinton, who is emerging as a key Obama mouthpiece, appeared in the video to endorse the president as decisive.

"The commander-in-chief gets one chance to make the right decision. Nobody can make that decision for you," he said in the video.

Clinton said that by risking the lives of US Navy SEALs - and his career - by ordering the raid on bin Laden's hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan on May 2, Mr Obama "took the harder and the more honourable path".

The ad, backed with tense string music, strikes at the heart of Romney's main claim for the US presidency that he is 'the ruthless chief executive that America needs to lift the country out of its economic doldrums.'

Romney , who has distanced himself from his 2007 remarks, said that 'any president would have done that," referring to the Abbottabad raid. (ANI)
