>>> and in "psycho talk" tonight, mr. intellectual honesty. sean hannity . well, he served up another dandy. anybody who says fox news doesn't lie needs to listen up. here's what happened last night when joe trippi had the audacity to give president obama credit for killing osama bin laden .
>> where is osama bin laden ? barack obama getting osama bin laden --
>> thanks to george bush .
>> exactly. and intelligence george bush built up, busting the porn king osama bin laden was huge. that's the story of the year.
>> you give credit to bush. if obama had his way, we wouldn't have gotten bin laden .
>> if obama had gotten his way, we wouldn't have gotten bin laden ? did i hear that? well, in 2008 , candidate obama explained his way.
>> we will kill bin laden . we will crush al qaeda . that has to be our biggest national security advisory.
>> in 2009 president obama ordered the cia to kill bin laden . obama ordered the mission that killed osama bin laden . president obama got his way and got bin laden . hannity's pal, w., gave up on finding bin laden six months after 9/11.
>> i don't know where he is, nor -- i just don't spend that much time on him to be honest with you. we hadn't heard much from him, and i wouldn't necessarily say he's at the center of any command structure . and, you know, again, i don't know where he is. i -- i -- i repeat what i said. i truly am not that concerned about him.
>> bush wasn't concerned, but his administration was. they said letting bin laden slip through their fingers in tora bora in late 2001 , was their, quote, gravest error in the war against al qaeda . by 2006 , they all gave up and closed the cia unit in charge of hunting bin laden . it took president obama to refocus on the mission by doing things his way. and how did that thing work out again?
>> ask osama bin laden and the 22 out of 30 top al qaeda leaders who have been taken off the field.
>> bingo. for sean hannity to say we wouldn't have gotten bin laden if obama had gotten his way, is actually intellectually dishonest "psycho talk."
