President Obama will be aboard the carrier vessel that buried Osama bin Laden on Veterans Day Friday, but not for an event related to terrorism or military action – he’ll be there for a basketball game.
Obama will be attending the “Carrier Classic” in San Diego, a college hoops match-up between North Carolina and Michigan State.
The USS Carl Vinson also happens to be the carrier that buried Usama bin Laden at sea earlier this year. The burial took place within Muslim tradition and timing, but happened at sea because officials were worried if it were on land, that other terrorists would treat it as a shrine and inspiration point.
