Photos of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Co. Watching Osama Bin Laden Mission

by

The official White House photographer Pete Souza captured a dramatic series of images yesterday, May 1, 2011, in the Situation Room of the White House as President Barack Obama gathered with Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other national security team members while they received updates from the mission that ultimately killed Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan. If you’re like us, you’ve consumed thousands of words of news and analysis today on the subject, clamoring for details of the attack, but few so far do as much as the faces above to tell the story. Another moving photo of Obama after the jump.

See the rest of Souza’s images at the White House Flickr feed.
