Washington D.C. (CNN) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is talking about what it was like inside the White House Situation Room during the raid on Osama bin Laden's compound.

The atmosphere so tense, Clinton says no one could breathe for 35 minutes.

"We were able to have some communication, so we were in real time aware of what was happening. And I'm not sure anybody breathed for 35 or 37 minutes. For me the worst part was when one of the helicopters, if you remember looking at drawings of what the compound looked like, there was a yard and there was a wall. And as the helicopter went in the tail got stuck and it was not flyable," said Clinton.

Secretary Clinton gave that detailed play-by-play account during a Q-and-A session at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.
