Americans greatly praise the U.S. mission that killed Osama Bin Laden, with 93% approving and 89% greatly crediting the U.S. military.

Gallup reveals that 47% of Pakistanis in 2010 felt that their government’s anti-terror efforts fell short.

Gallup finds Egyptians more optimistic about their future lives following the revolution in their country.

A strong majority of Americans (72%) approve of President Obama’s plan to begin withdrawing U.S. troops from Afghanistan.

An increasing number of Egyptians say they are “finding it very difficult” to get by on their current income.
