Watch The Complete, Revealing Obama Interview On 60 Minutes

President Obama’s interview with Steve Kroft on 60 Minutes took up most of the program, and the headlines (why the photos of Bin Laden’s corpse aren’t being released, for one) have already been in the news. But the experience of watching went beyond the headlines. Seeing Obama answer the questions with such steely calm, offering details when he chose to and a few graceful evasions when he didn’t, creates a vivid sense of how he must operate under pressure.

The President was tough with some answers: it’s likely some Pakistanis knew Bin Laden was there, he said, but we don’t know whether they were inside or outside the government.

Here’s the entire, gripping half-hour interview. (You can also find shorter excerpts at the CBS website: )
