OSAMA BIN LADEN’S SON HAMZA IS POISED TO LEAD AL QAEDA: “American people, we’re coming and you’re going to feel it”
Osama bin Laden’s son Hamza could be the next face of al Qaeda, according to letters found after the 2011 raid that killed his father.
From Daily Mail:
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.
