Revealed: Osama bin Laden’s plot to kill Obama and make “totally unprepared” Biden President

posted at 1:20 pm on March 16, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

David Ignatius got an advance look at intel captured during the commando mission that killed Osama bin Laden showing that the al-Qaeda leader continued to plot terrorist attacks even from his hide-in-plain-sight bunker in Abbottabad, Pakistan.  The communications from bin Laden, which will shortly be declassified and published in both English and the original Arabic, also shows that the terrorist leader has more in common with another nutcase in a bunker a few decades earlier:

Before his death, Osama bin Laden boldly commanded his network to organize special cells in Afghanistan and Pakistan to attack the aircraft of President Barack Obama and Gen. David Petraeus.

“The reason for concentrating on them,” the al-Qaeda leader explained to his top lieutenant, “is that Obama is the head of infidelity and killing him automatically will make (Vice President Joe) Biden take over the presidency. … Biden is totally unprepared for that post, which will lead the U.S. into a crisis. As for Petraeus, he is the man of the hour … and killing him would alter the war’s path” in Afghanistan.

Administration officials said Friday the Obama-Petraeus plot was never a serious threat. …

The man bin Laden hoped would carry out the attacks on Obama and Petraeus was the Pakistani terrorist Ilyas Kashmiri. “Please ask brother Ilyas to send me the steps he has taken into that work,” bin Laden wrote to his top lieutenant, Atiyah Abd al-Rahman. A month after bin Laden’s death, Kashmiri was killed in a U.S. drone attack.

That sequence was likely no accident.  The intel picked up from the OBL raid almost certainly gave the US multiple leads in tracking down the rest of the AQ network, although the exposure of the raid might have sent many targets into hiding.

Why was it not a serious threat?  AQ lacks the capacity to shoot down aircraft, according to Ignatius’ sources, although their allies in the Taliban have had some success at targeting helicopters in Afghanistan.  They probably lacked the manpower to make the attempt as well, thanks to years of American attacks degrading their capabilities. Also, the notion that Joe Biden was “totally unprepared” to be President is another example of a lack of serious understanding of the US.  Biden had a lot more experience than Obama did coming into the Oval Office, in domestic and foreign affairs.  Biden might not make a good President for other reasons, but it’s not due to a total lack of preparation.  If that was the main aim of al-Qaeda, they don’t sound terribly bright.

The intel paints a conflicting image of bin Laden in hiding.  It sounds almost like an echo of Adolf Hitler moving phantom armies around Germany from his bunker in the last week of the war, refusing to acknowledge the reality of defeat.  However, on another level, the intel Ignatius saw shows bin Laden very much in charge of the network in a hands-on way, much different than the picture painted of him as more of an inspirational leader rather than operational commander.

The AQ terrorist leader also wanted to put together a plan to manipulate the media on the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.  American traitor Adam Gadahn offered his expertise on the message and the distribution, the latter of which contained a bit of a backward endorsement for Fox News:

“It should be sent for example to ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN and maybe PBS and VOA. As for Fox News let her die in her anger,” Gadahn wrote. At another point, he said of the networks: “From a professional point of view, they are all on one level — except (Fox News) channel, which falls into the abyss as you know, and lacks objectivity, too.”

Ignatius humorously predicts that Fox may adopt “al-Qaeda’s least-favorite network” as a selling point.  Be sure to read it all

You know, I’m going to be castigated for saying this, but I don’t think Biden is as dumb as you all think. No one can be as stupid as he sounds, by accident. I really think he makes his endless idiotic comments to make 1)the administration look foolish; 2)p!ss off Obama no end; or 3)failing those, he’s been instructed to make Obama look good by comparison and act as a perceived insurance policy.

If you look at Biden’s body language when he and the president are together, or look at Obama’s for that matter, it’s pretty clear they despise each other.

I swear Biden is just fluking with Obama and takes great pleasure in playing the fool.

Perhaps. But, Occam’s Razor doesn’t end the inquiry in every instance.

Sometimes it doesn’t boil down to the simplest explanation.

What you have in your favor is the plain fact that out of all the insider-trading, corrupt deal-making in Congress, making members wealthy beyond belief, Joe Biden ended up with the lowest net worth suggesting he is either 1)stupid as everyone believes (not out of the realm of possibility, I’m not denying it); 2)a p!ss poor money manager (also well within the realm of possibility given his political proclivities); or 3)really, really honest (definitely not within the realm of possibility.

Nothing New here, he did the same thing when he made a campaign ad for the Idiot the Democrats ran for President in 2004. That ad came out just a few days before the election, and Poor Loser Thurston blamed part of his loss on that (and the rest on alleged Vote Fraud in Ohio).

As Churchill once said (upon Hitler’s invasion of the USSR) — “Thus we see that wickedness is not always clever.”

The Evil One was deluding himself by assuming that there would be a big preparedness gap between our POTUS and VPOTUS. But in the end, who cares – he got his.

Chuckles3 on March 16, 2012 at 2:02 PM

Obama and Osama seem to have strong feelings about Biden.

Osama saw Biden as being unprepared and thus taking Obama out would allow chaos to ensue all across America. [In this, Osama may have had a far better understanding than most of those on the Left regarding Biden.]

Obama sees Biden as a simple court jester, and Biden entering the White House would bring on chaos all over America…and thus, Biden remains VP and will be on the ticket again in November…as simple cheap insurance…for Obama. Few Americans would like to see Biden at the helm. Seriously. Biden is to Obama as Agnew was to Nixon.

coldwarrior on March 16, 2012 at 2:02 PM

The only reason the Oministration is releasing this is to float the idea of whether it’s a good idea to scrub Obiden from the 2012 ticket. What a way to undermine a fool who is patently a liability for all to see.

BTW, Don’t forget that all the same Obama apologists tore after GW Bush for wanting to take out Sadaam Hussein for “personal” reasons.

Western_Civ on March 16, 2012 at 2:03 PM

This just shows Bin Laden was totally off his meds. Biden is an old man who would have gone totally nuclear in response to an assassination. I for one would have supported that. Screw with the POTUS at your own peril.

teacherman on March 16, 2012 at 2:03 PM

Also, the notion that Joe Biden was “totally unprepared” to be President is another example of a lack of serious understanding of the US.

They prepared this plan for McCain/Palin and just substituted the names after the election.

Well, I rarely defend Clenis but he did retaliate for the attempted hit on Pappy Bush.

On June 27, 1993 President Bill Clinton responded to the assassination attempt as part of Operation Southern Watch by firing 23 Tomahawk cruise missiles against the Iraqi Intelligence Headquarters. Clinton was convinced to attack by three compelling pieces of evidence. First, suspects in the plot confessed to FBI agents in Kuwait. Second, FBI bomb experts firmly linked the captured car bombs to the same explosives made in Iraq, including a 175-pound car bomb found in Kuwait City on April 14. Third, intelligence reports confirmed that Saddam had been plotting to assassinate the former President for some time. Leaders from both parties supported Clinton’s attack.

The failed Hit on Pappy Bush was also listed prominently in the 2002 Iraq Resolution as one of the 12 reasons to give Chimpy the OK to take out Saddam.

hrmm — I ponder this latest Osama-Obama revelation with a jaundiced eye.

I trust Barack Hussein Obama about as much as I trust the MSM. His entire existence, up to and including his current station, is as contrived and phony as is The Wizard of Oz. His entire ascension to the White House, down to the very last iota, was (and still is) a Hollywood+MSM=Sheople Kool-Aid production.

Barack Hussein Obama’s presidential incumbency is threatened, however marginally and slight, and in conjunction with the release of his Hollywood produced biopic this latest revelation of Barack Hussein Obama’s trials and tribulations could be just as easily manufactured.

Fox News- Fair, Balanced & Unafraid al-Qaeda’s least-favorite network.

F*ck Bin Laden. Glad he’s dead. Kudos to Bush for setting the ball and Obama for spiking it.

Biden may be a drooling, knuckle-dragging imbecile and probably the stupidest person ever to hold the office (ironic that the sooper-smart liberals who told us Palin was the worst person in the world are the ones who put him in there), but he’s our drooling, knuckle-dragging imbecile.

Couldn’t have said it better myself. As much as I think the entire administration is continuously in ‘full retard’ mode I don’t want any of them dead. And I’ll be d@mned if some cave living, goat sexer is gonna wax my Pres.

I gotta spell it out?

Ok, a troll is a commenter who hangs out on a blog solely to cause trouble, or at least to disagree with the predominant tenor of a thread.

A Musllim is someone who follows an ancient Arab people think was named Mohammed who probably didn’t exist, but if he did he was either crazy or demon possessed.

A Muslim troll would be a combination of these unfortunate types of people.

Oh sure, take one idiot out and another takes his place.
It’s a liberal’s world all right./

If that was the main aim of al-Qaeda, they don’t sound terribly bright.

Their main goal is to turn the entire planet into their version of the 11th century. And that is a far as you need to go to figure out they aren’t terribly bright.
