It has now been revealed that in mid-2010, Osama bin Laden had given specific instructions to his lieutenants to arrange to blow up the plane ofwhen he next came to visit Afghanistan. This has been reported in the Australian of 5th of May 2012.
Information on this ambitious plan of OBL, the al-Qaeda leader has been made available to the public by the Combating Terrorism Centre at the US Military Academy at West Point.
The plan included eliminating, the then commander of US and allied forces in Afghanistan along with Barack Obama – OBL felt that eliminating David Petraeus would be a significant step towards altering the path of the war.
This important letter was, apparently, one of the letters which the US Navy Seal commandos had retrieved from the den of OBL in Abbottabad in Pakistan from a pile of 197-pages of translated documents which have, since, been posted online.
The thinking of OBL appeared to have hinged on the belief that, in case Obama was eliminated, there would be a leadership crisis in the USA because the vice Presidentwas not ready to take over.
OBL wanted go in for another high-profile terror attack directed at the US, like the assassination of Barack Obama which would shock the world as the attack on the Twin Towers did on September 11, 2001.
