National Survey of 1,000 Adults
Conducted November 7-8, 2014
By Rasmussen Reports
1* How closely have you followed recent news reports about the Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden?
2* Is it good or bad for national security that this SEAL has gone public with his story? Or will it have no impact?
3* Should the government have the power to stop those involved in secret military missions from speaking out and be able to punish them legally if they disobey?
4* Do you approve of President Obama’s decision authorizing the mission to kill Osama bin Laden or should the United States have tried harder to capture bin Laden so he could have been given a fair trial?
5* Is Al Qaeda stronger today or weaker today since the death of bin Laden? Or is its strength about the same?
