How did the Rock know about the death of Osama bin Laden before the rest of America, as evidenced by his mysterious tweet ("Just got word that will shock the world ... PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN") earlier that day? "I got my sources. I got friends in high places and low places," Dwayne Johnson now tells Moviefone. "I knew the President was going to give his speech; I thought he was going to give it at a certain time and so I thought, I think it's appropriate that I tweet 'I'm damn proud to be an American' and keep it in that space without giving away too much information. And then I got a call saying, 'Now the President will give his speech in a couple of hours.' So we had about two hours of Rock tweets out there." In fact, Johnson wants to further strengthen his ties to high-level government operations ... someday. "Right now, the best way that I can impact the world is through entertainment," he says. "One day, and that day will come, I can impact the world through politics. The great news is that I am American, therefore I can become President." Just when Mitt Romney thought he was in the clear!
