* 1. The speaker of this rhetoric is the current president of the United States of America, Barack Obama. The thing that makes him qualified to speak on this subject is that he is the president and is in charge of the country. He is the person that gave the green light to Seal Team Six to make the move on the compound where Bin Laden was believed to be hiding. The only biographical detail that seems significant given the subject of the speech is that it is the president’s responsibility to alert the public on the major events that happen in our country. *
* 2. This speech is basically about President Obama ordering Seal Team Six to infiltrate a compound in Pakistan where Osama Bin Laden was hiding; ultimately resulting in his death. Obama tells how he was collecting Intel for 4 months before he finally felt like he had enough evidence to make a move on Bin Laden; a man who was believed to be behind thousands of murders in Afghanistan and a leader of the terrorist group Al Qaeda. He has evaded capture for the last ten years and was finally brought to justice. This event is significant to everybody because it symbolized a big blow to terrorism in America since he was believed to be one of the conspirators behind the bombing of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. This was a huge accomplishment for the Obama Administration, so he goes on to make many comments on the patriotism of these men in Seal Team Six, and that the death of Bin Laden lets Americans know that we need not fear terrorism anymore.
