Hamza bin Laden is threatening the United Statesover the timely death of his father. Al Qaeda have been using the young bin Laden in propaganda videos. They are trying to make him the face of the organization. But why? If I had to guess, I would say that current leaders want to use the bin Laden name to legitimize their leadership and Hamza would be the head in name only. Secondly, he would become the number one target of the United States, which would make them a lot safer.
Let’s face it, during his last couple of years, Osama was not really leading Al Qaeda, he was in exile to protect him from the wrath of the United States while others ran the day to day operations. That all ended one day when Barack Obama, acting alone, parachuted into Pakistan and single handedly raided bin Laden’s compound shooting him to death in the process. (At least that’s the liberal take on the attack)
Osama bin Laden’s son Hamza is poised to lead al Qaeda years after his father’s death, personal letters seized in the raid that killed bin Laden have revealed.
Now, Hamza is about 28 years old, but he wrote one of the letters to his father when he was 22.
A former FBI agent who has read the documents, which are now declassified, said that Hamza seems motivated and prepared to avenge his father.
Ali Soufan was an agent who also served as the bureau’s lead investigator of al Qaeda after 9/11. He said bin Laden’s son was seen as the next possible leader of the terrorist organization when he was just a child, CBS News reported.
Principal among Hamza’s messages is his desire for revenge.
‘He’s basically saying, “American people, we’re coming and you’re going to feel it. And we’re going to take revenge for what you did to my father…Iraq…Afghanistan”…the whole thing was about vengeance,’ Soufan said.
