July 2011 Archives

President Bush was out to dinner with his wife Laura, when President Obama called to tell him that the U.S. captured and killed Osama Bin Laden.

"I didn't... feel any great sense of happiness. Or jubilation," Bush told National Geographic.  "I felt a sense of closure.  I felt a sense of gratitude that justice had been done."

For more, watch National Geographic's exclusive interview with President Bush on the events surrounding 911 and Bin Laden on August 28th.

Congratulations to Team USA for a game well played, and congratulations to Japan on its World Cup victory.  We hope the win will help lift Japanese spirits after suffering from that horrible earthquake earlier this year.

Check out the final game highlights above. If you missed the game live, it was a nailbiter indeed.

Anybody who's anybody is tweeting all about it.  President Obama tweeted, "To the women of our national soccer team: Sorry I can't be there to see you play, but I'll be cheering you on from here.  Let's go. - BO."    Other celebs like Ashton Kutcher, Ellen, and Maria Shriver got in on the Twitter action as well.

Second Lady Dr. Jill Bidan and Chelsea Clinton are part of the official U.S. delegation sent to Germany to cheer the players on.  To get in on the cheer action yourself, you need only flip on your TV.  Game's on right now.

Go USA!
