Before he announced to the nation that Osama bin Laden had been killed in a strategic raid by American Special Forces, President Obama personally briefed his predecessors, George W. Bush, who launched the War on Terror during his tenure in office, and President Bill Clinton.
Said former President Bush in a statement: "This momentous achievement marks a victory for America, for people who seek peace around the world, and for all those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001. The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done."
Clinton's statement said: "This is a profoundly important moment not just for the families of those who lost their lives on 9/11 and in al-Qaida's other attacks but for people all over the world who want to build a common future of peace, freedom, and cooperation for our children. I congratulate the President, the National Security team and the members of our armed forces on bringing Osama bin Laden to justice after more than a decade of murderous al-Qaida attacks."

Bush Twins take note: Your dad is anxious to be a grandfather.
"I'm a little disappointed it hasn't happened yet," former President George W. Bush tells December's AARP The Magazine. "But the more disappointment I show, the less likely it is things are going to happen on the time table I want."
He may be in for a wait since 28-year-old daughters Jenna Bush Hager, who married in 2008, and Barbara Bush are both focused on their careers. Jenna told PEOPLE in May that it will be "years" before she gives her parents grandkids. Fortunately, Bush has his wife Laura to keep him company.

How bad a drunk was George W. Bush before he gave up alcohol at the age of 40?
"I wasn't a knee-walkin' drunk," the former president tells Matt Lauer in an interview previewing his new memoir, Decision Points. "I could easily have a beer or two, or a martini, before dinner, bourbons, B&Bs. I was a drinker."
Of his relationship with alcohol, Bush says, "It became a love and, therefore, began to compete for my love with my wife and my daughters."
It also got him in trouble with his parents.

Standing firm that his decision to invade Iraq was the right one, revealing that he considered dropping Dick Cheney from his 2004 campaign to "demonstrate that I was in charge," and even admitting that a televised insult from Kanye West represented the lowest point of his presidency, former President George W. Bush has put pen to paper for a memoir, Decision Points, due from Crown Publishers on Nov. 9.
Talking about the book in his first TV interview since leaving the Oval Office, Bush met with NBC's Today show co-anchor Matt Lauer in Midland, Texas, from his childhood home and church, and from Centennial Park.
"I faced a lot of criticism as President. I didn't like hearing people claim that I lied about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction or cut taxes to benefit the rich. But the suggestion that I was racist because of the response to [Hurricane] Katrina represented an all-time low," Bush writes, and which Lauer reads back to him in the interview, which will air on Monday, Nov. 8, at 8 p.m. ET as a special Matt Lauer Reports. Bush will also appear live on Today Wednesday Nov. 10.
