It seems everyone’s jumping on the bin Laden bandwagon — even former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

pelosi, bin, ladenJust five years ago, when President Bush was still in power leading the hunt for the world’s most wanted terrorist, the California Democrat said capturing or killing Osama bin Laden was not vital to national security.

“Even if he’s is caught tomorrow, it is five years too late. Even to capture him now I don't think makes us any safer,” she said according to Powerline.

But now the deed has been done and the president is a member of her own party, Pelosi has changed her tune. “The death of Osama bin Laden marks the most significant development in our fight against al-Qaida,” she said on Monday.

“I salute President Obama, his national security team, Director Panetta, our men and women in the intelligence community and military, and other nations who supported this effort for their leadership in achieving this major accomplishment.”
