Reporting with Natasha Korecki

Well, the Navy SEALs have taken care of it now, but in 2008 Rod Blagojevich had discussions with advisers about appointing himself Senator, heading to Afghanistan and hunting down Osama bin Laden, he testified.

Blagojevich's lawyer, Aaron Goldstein, is likely trying to point out the absurdity and far-fetched nature of his discussions.

Goldstein asks if Blagojevich talked about appointing himself "in exchange for going to Afghanistan and hunting down Osama bin Laden."

"Yes," Blagojevich replies.
