Former US president George W. Bush has finally broken his silence on the death of Osama Bin Laden. In his first informal comments after Osama's death, Bush said that the news of Laden's death didn't make him overjoyed. However, he told Obama that it was a good call to increase the Navy SEALs operation into Pakistan and go after the terrorist leader.
Addressing a crowd of 1,800 hedge fund managers in Las Vegas, Bush told that the mission he initiated to track down bin Laden almost ten years ago following 9/11 was not out of hatred but to exact judgment, reports ABC News.
This momentous achievement marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001, said Bush in a statement following the assault on bin Laden's compound.
The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done, he added.
Bush and former President Bill Clinton were invited by President Obama after the raid to deliver the news of bin Laden's death but Bush declined the invitation.
