Former aide: Obama played cards during bin Laden raid
Posted by Staff
The Daily Caller reports:

Despite the picture the White House released showing President Obama intently watching the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, his former “body man” says the president spent most of the raid playing a card game.

“Most people were like down in the Situation Room and [the president] was like, ‘I’m not going to be down there, I can’t watch this entire thing.’ So he, myself, Pete Souza, the White House photographer, Marvin [Nicholson], we must have played 15 games of spades,” former Obama aide Reggie Love said at an event in Los Angeles sponsored by The Artists & Athletes Alliance in July.

Love, who played college basketball and football at Duke University, left the White House in 2011 to attend business school.

After the May 1, 2011 raid that killed Osama bin Laden, the White House released a photo of the president looking serious in the Situation Room surrounded by his national security team as the raid was ongoing.

No photo has yet been released of President Obama playing cards during the raid.
