Brian Williams, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Like most of us, Brian Williams was at home when the news came down the wire that Osama Bin Laden had been killed late Sunday night. He got a phone call tipping him to the news story, which was enough to get his wife up and moving, according to the story he told on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS).

By the time he got off the phone, she had the car running and aiming for the road so he could get to 30 Rock and get on top of the story right away. Now that's devotion!

David Letterman asked about speculation that the Pakistani government knew Bin Laden was in their country, and Williams said he would answer the question with one of his own.

"What does it tell you that the White House didn't call Pakistan and say, 'Hey good news. Here's the GPS coordinates. We've found him. Would you mind running by, send a squad car over and pick him up.'"

Instead, we sent in our own forces under the cover of darkness to take care of the mission ourselves.
