Sorry but you're not correct. Surveillance was underway before Obama was in office but the actual raid was not planned till January of 2011. Obama was intimately involved in the planning and made key decisions such as overruling a joint operation with Pakistani forces which ensured operational security and deciding to equip the team to fight it's way out if necessary. Both decisions proved to be fateful in the success of the mission.

I'm amazed when people say the president get's no credit for the success of the mission to kill Bin Laden. No one would deny if anything had gone wrong he would certainly get all the blame.
