WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama's re-election campaign has found another way to boast about the fact that he successfully took out Osama bin Laden: by bringing in Bill Clinton.
Obama for America on Monday released new footage from "The Road We've Traveled," a forthcoming documentary about Obama's presidency, which features Clinton commending Obama's decision to authorize the operation that killed bin Laden.
"He took the harder, and the more honorable path. When I saw what had happened, I thought to myself, 'I hope that’s the call I would’ve made,'" Clinton says in the clip.
The video also features Vice President Joe Biden replaying the sequence of events that took place on the day Obama decided to attack bin Laden's compound. Biden said Obama asked every single member of his national security team in the Situation Room what they would do, and each said it was a tough call.
"As he walked out the room, it dawned on me: He's all alone," Biden says against the backdrop of dramatic music. "This is his decision."
The film, which is narrated by actor Tom Hanks, will be released in its entirety on Thursday, March 15.
