Obama shakes hand of soldier who killed bin Laden
A grateful President Obama yesterday shook the hand of the Navy SEAL who shot and killed terror nemesis Osama bin Laden.
At Fort Campbell, one of the nation's largest military bases, Obama met privately yesterday with members of the assault force that carried out the mission to get bin Laden, thanking each one individually for their "heroic and selfless service" to the country.
Obama then awarded the SEAL teams the "Presidential Unit Citation" -- the highest honor a unit can get, in recognition of their "extraordinary service and achievement."
