    Beginning in September, the CIA began to work with Obama on a set of intelligence assessments, which led him to believe that it was possible that bin Laden might be located at the compound in Pakistan.

    By mid-February, Obama determined that there was a sound intelligence basis for pursuing this and developing courses of action in case it proved correct. A month later, he began holding National Security Council meetings, which totaled five by the end of March.

    On April 29, shortly before flying to Alabama to visit tornado-ravaged communities, Obama gathered senior officials in the Diplomatic Room and made the decision at 8:20 a.m. to undertake the operation.
