WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama on Friday will privately thank some of the US personnel involved in the operation against Osama bin Laden, an administration official said on Thursday.

Obama is to visit Fort Campbell, Kentucky, to address several military units that have recently returned from duty in Afghanistan.

The official said Obama met at the White House on Wednesday with Vice Admiral William McRaven, who The Washington Post reported was the overall commander of the bin Laden mission. Bin Laden was killed on Monday in Pakistan by a top-secret US strike team.
"The president met with Admiral McRaven at the White House yesterday to thank him personally in the Oval Office and will have the opportunity to privately thank some of the special operators involved in the operation tomorrow at Fort Campbell," the official said without elaborating.
