That’s the sound of Abbottabad youngsters playing a game of cricket on the very site in which Usama bin Laden lived for five years.

Today, on the one year anniversary, Pakistan very much wants to forget. New information has since come out about bin Laden’s time here in was can only be described as Pakistan’s uniquely independent investigation, which ultimately was officially sanctioned.

They found that whe was retired by al-Qaeda in 2003. His wives told investigators that he started to suffer from a degree of dementia because he couldn’t come to terms with exactly that.

A year after the raid that killed Usama bin Laden, President Obama find himself on the defensive.

FOX News Radio’s Mike Majchrowitz reports from the White House:

Audio clip:

The President bristled at the notion that his administration is doing a few too many high fives over the anniversary of bin Laden’s demise. 

(Obama) “I hardly think you have seen any excessive celebration taking place here.”

The President says it appropriate to reflect on that moment and the people who made it possible. But Illinois House Republican Joe Walsh says the problem is that the White House has made it all about the President.

(Walsh) “It’s outrageous and it’s really kind of shameful what this President is doing.”

Walsh says the President has polticized the anniversary in his bid to get re-elected, stealing credit from many people more deserving of that praise.
