Fears have gripped the entire officials of the White House over envisaged terror attacks by the Al-Qeada on the United States on the first anniversary of the death of its leader, the late Osama Bin Laden who was killed by US military personnels in Pakistan last year.
Although, the White House said that no credible information has emerged that terrorist networks are plotting an attack to coincide with the first anniversary of Osama bin Laden’s death, it accepted that such attack is not impossible.
President Obama discussed the possibility of attacks on U.S. interests at a meeting with his national security team, White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters today.
Carney would not say if Obama would mark the anniversary of bin Laden's death. “I think the way that we've handled it represents exactly the balance we need to strike,” Carney said.
The White House spokesman said foreign policy will “obviously” be discussed in the campaign. Vice President Biden, for example, touted the death in a speech, saying “bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive.”
Obama has also mentioned the death at campaign fundraisers in recent months.
“The president has discussed the mission that resulted in bin Laden's death and the extraordinary work of our military and intelligences services in bringing it about,” Carney said.
