Romney: ‘Even Jimmy Carter’ Would Have Given Order to Kill Bin Laden

Mitt Romney rejected the assertion from President Obama’s campaign that he would not have ordered the assassination of Osama bin Laden, saying “of course” he would have made the same decision had he been in the White House.

“Even Jimmy Carter would have given that order,” Romney said Monday before a New Hampshire campaign event, according to multiple media reports.

Last week, the Obama campaign released a video marking the first anniversary of the mission into Pakistan that killed the al Qaeda leader. In the video, former President Clinton heralds Obama’s decision-making, and the ad suggests Romney might not have made the same decision.
