Obama Tweets Situation Room Photo On Osama Bin Laden Anniversary (PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

One year after Osama bin Laden's killing, President Obama tweeted this historic photo of himself, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Admiral Mike Mullen and others receiving an update on the raid on May 1, 2011.

"A year ago today," he wrote.

The anniversary of bin Laden's death has started a political firestorm as Obama and Mitt Romney trade punches over whether Romney would have ordered the raid as president. The Obama campaign released a controversial ad asking "Which path would Mitt Romney have taken?"

"Of course," Romney said at a campaign event on Monday. "Even Jimmy Carter would have given that order."
