Photo Shows Situation Room Intensity During Osama Bin Laden Raid

May 2, 2011 6:17pm

ABC's Sunlen Miller reports:   The White House has released 8 photos of President Obama’s day Sunday – showing behind-the-scenes shots of the President’s meetings in the Situation Room with his national security team, and phone calls throughout the day leading up to his statement in the East Room last night on the killing of Osama bin Laden. The most remarkable image shows a steely-faced President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, along with members of the national security team crammed into the room and trailing out the doorway, listening to or watching something. Secretary of State Clinton is covering her mouth and she stares on. Classified documents (obscured) are strewn across the table. (Click on the Image for a larger version).

It is not clear what the group is looking at, but the caption does not do the photo justice. It reads: "President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, along with members of the national security team, receive an update on the mission against Osama bin Laden in the Situation Room of the White House, May 1, 2011."
