(DAILYMAIL) — President Obama’s longtime aide Reggie Love says he and the president played cards during part of the raid in Pakistan that killed al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

‘Most people were like down in the Situation Room and [President Obama] was like, “I’m not going to be down there, I can’t watch this entire thing,”‘ Love recalled of the May 2011 raid during a forum hosted by the D.C.-based Artists & Athletes Alliance in Los Angeles last month.

He said that he and the president, along with White House photographer Pete Souza and Obama aide Marvin Nicholson, gathered in the private dining room to play a couple rounds of cards.
