US President Barack Obama yesterday was to meet members of the elite commando team that shot bin Laden.

Obama’s meeting was to take place at the Fort Campbell army base in Kentucky, an official said, and it comes a day after he paid homage to the victims of al-Qaeda’s Sept. 11, 2001, attacks at the site of the World Trade Center in New York.

Obama “will have the opportunity to privately thank some of the special operators involved in the operation,” an unnamed official said.
