No terrorist has done more to cause lasting harm to the American psyche and way of life, along with thousands of deaths, than former al Qaeda mastermind Osama bin Laden. Americans thought we had heard the last of bin Laden when it was reported that Navy SEALs broke into his compound in Pakistan and shot the terrorist dead.
Osama bin Laden’s body may have been dumped into the ocean and forgotten, but part of him is still here with us. According to new testimony from the FBI, Osama’s son Hamza bin Laden could now pose a considerable threat to the United States and the Western world as a whole.
Ali Soufan served as lead investigator for the FBI’s work against al Qaeda following the September 11th, 2001 attacks. He recently spoke with 60 Minutes and told them that the 28 year old Hamza could be readying himself to avenge the death of Osama. Cautioned Soufan, “I think we’re not done with the bin Ladens yet.”
Soufan warned that Osama’s son “exhibited leadership skills early on,” and apparently now sounds and looks like Osama. Commented Ali, “We killed Osama bin Laden. But, his message lives,” and he detailed about Hamza, “Interestingly enough, his recent message that came out, he delivered the speech as if it’s his father delivering the speech, using sentences, terminology that was used by Osama bin Laden.”
Continued the FBI agent, “He’s basically saying, America and American people, we’re coming and you’re gonna feel it. And, we’re gonna take revenge for what you did to my father. We’re gonna revenge what you did in Iraq. We’re gonna revenge what you did in Afghanistan.” Do you think America should go after Hamza bin Laden before it’s too late?
