President Obama had a busy schedule last month leading up to the announcement that Osama bin Laden has been killed.From a town hall meeting in Pennsylvania to a factory visit in Landover, Md to a fundraiser in Los Angeles to going to the tornado devastated areas in Alabama, Obama covered a lot of ground in April.

Then, on May 1, 2011, Obama and his staff met to discuss the mission of raiding Bin Laden’s compound and receive updates on its progression.
