So, your entire argument is based on a hypothetical situation that didn't exist?
Because what if the next interviewer asks a question that isn't so obvious and easy? What if he follows up with a question like "Ok. What if you had actionable intelligence that OBL was hiding in the UK?", or "What if he's hiding in China?". Now what does he do? Say that he wouldn't order an attack? Does the interviewer then get to go through the entire list of nations of the world and force the president to tell us all which countries he'd be willing to invade to kill a top Al-queda member and which he wouldn't?
Really convincing. No, seriously. Just making up scenarios and saying "but what if!!" is really solid debating.
