OKLAHOMA CITY -- Barack Obama's finest moment so far as President, without a doubt. He made a very tough decision to send a kill squad into a sovereign country to take out Osama bin Laden.

He made the right call, and our incredible military carried it out flawlessly, even with a helicopter malfunction.

I give President Obama a lot of credit for his adjustments toward Iraq, Afghanistan, keeping Guantanamo Bay open and now with bin Laden.

He has shifted his position of a quick withdrawal, to seeing the war through.

And I can only wonder if his opposition of "enhanced interrogation techniques" will be the next to fall because without them, the bin Laden kill Sunday probably wouldn't have occurred.

It was through the waterboarding of two top Al Qaeda leaders during the Bush years that the CIA learned about an Al Qaeda messenger who eventually led them to the compound where bin Laden was living, and where he died Sunday.

The President is proving to be increasingly pragmatic, and I wonder how he will deal with the use of enhanced interrogation from here on out?
