The Silent Warrior.

After Navy SEALs killed Osama bin Laden, the White House released a photo of President Barack Obama and his Cabinet inside the Situation Room, watching the daring raid unfold.

Hidden from view, standing just outside the frame of that now-famous photograph was a career CIA analyst. In the hunt for the world's most-wanted terrorist, there may have been no one more important. His job for nearly a decade was finding the al-Qaida leader.

Call him John, his middle name.

Read the entire article. It's so interesting. I still can't believe Obama tried to hog all the credit- "John" has been tracking Osama bin Laden since 2003 and worked through the entire Bush administration. All Obama did was make a "gutsy call." But the hard work fell on the shoulders of John and the Navy SEALs (and GWB!).

Thanks John!
