President Barack Obama’s administration Thursday lobbed another salvo in its public relations barrage timed to the first anniversary of the killing of Osama bin Laden, releasing a small but intriguing batch of documents seized during the assault on his Pakistan hideout.

The public disclosure of the 17 documents found at the Al Qaeda leader’s compound followed a highly unusual TV interview with Obama in the White House Situation Room, as well as the president’s surprise trip to Afghanistan and address to the nation touting the success of the mission Navy SEALs executed on his orders.

Obama’s reelection campaign also pitched in late last week with a Web video paying tribute to the president’s courage in ordering the raid and asking whether his likely political opponent this fall, Mitt Romney, would have done the same.
