George W. Bush on bin Laden: 'The guy is dead. That is good' 

ABC News reports that former President George W. Bush revealed some of his thoughts about the death of Osama bin Laden today at a Las Vegas conference.

When he got the call from President Obama about the news, Bush remembers telling him, "Good call."

Bush also credited the intelligence and military communities for the victory recalling a conversation he had with Navy SEAL Team Six.

"I met SEAL Team Six in Afghanistan. They are awesome, skilled, talented and brave," he said. "I said, 'I hope you have everything you need. One guy said, 'We need your permission to go into Pakistan and kick ass.'"
