Marco Rubio had words of praise today for President Barack Obama's handling of the capture and death of Osama Bin Laden.
The Miami Republican opened a press conference in Miami with a compliment for the administration's work: "I want to take this opportunity, first of all, to congratulate the president and his national security team for a job well done," Rubio said. "It took a high level of confidence and a significant level of guts to carry out that mission." He noted that as further details of the mission emerge, "you'll be similarly impressed with the president and his national security team."
He noted it was "important to remember the Bush administration and the decisions made under President Bush that began this process and brought us to this point. Last night was a culmination of years of hard work and sacrifice and difficult decsions, many of which started under the presidency of George Bush."
Members of the House and Senate intelligence panels were briefed before the mission. Rubio said he was "comfortable with the level of information that the administration shared."
