FILE – In this May 1, 2011, file photo released by the White House, President Barack Obama talks with members of the his national security team in the White House Situation Room during one in a series of meetings to discuss the mission against Osama bin Laden. As the world now knows well Obama ultimately decided to launch the raid on the Abbottabad compound that killed bin Laden and 21 others though faced with a level of widespread skepticism from a veteran intelligence analyst, skepticism shared with other top-level officials, which nearly scuttled the raid. That process reflected a sea change within the U.S. spy community, one that embraces debate to avoid “slam-dunk” intelligence in tough national security decisions.
