Bin Laden Plotted To Push U.S. Into 'Crisis' By Making Biden President, Docs Reveal
Terrorist leader want to use Biden as president to harm America
Al-Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden planned to assassinate then-President Barack Obama to send the U.S. “into a crisis" by making “totally unprepared” Joe Biden the next president, according to declassified documents.
The documents, which were taken from Bin Laden’s Pakistani compound in 2011, were unearthed by Fox News Editor Gregg Re on Wednesday night.
According to the letter, bin Laden wrote to a top Al-Qaeda official that he was directing the terrorist organization to create two groups to watch for and to target U.S. aircraft that could be carrying Obama.
Bin Laden then told terrorists “not to target visits by U.S. Vice President Biden.”
Bin Laden wrote:
The reason for concentrating on them is that Obama is the head of infidelity and killing him will automatically make Biden take over the presidency for the remainder of the term, as it is the norm over there. Biden is totally unprepared for that post, which will lead the United States into a crisis.
At the time, U.S. forces were ready to strike bin Laden’s compound, but Biden wasn't sure if they should carry out the operation.
But earlier this year Biden denied pushing back against the operation.
Biden told a reporter this was not true, which conflicted with the accounts by several other top Obama officials.
"No, I didn't, I didn't," Biden said.
What Biden did say was:
“Mr. President, my suggestion is, don’t go."
“We have to do two more things to see if he’s there.”
Obama later told Mitt Romney that "Even some in my own party, including my current vice president, had the same critique as you did," verifying Biden's position against the strike on Bin Laden, Fox News reported.
Earlier this year, Biden said President Donald Trump was "dangerously incompetent" for killing Iranian Quds Force Commander Qasem Soleimani, who was responsible for hundreds of American soldier's deaths
“No, and the reason I wouldn’t have ordered the strike, there’s no evidence yet of imminent threat that was going to come from him,” Biden claimed.
Biden has shown his hesitance on killing terrorists, while Trump has aggressively hunted them down.
“At the direction of President Donald J. Trump, the United States conducted a counterterrorism operation in Yemen that successfully eliminated Qasim al-Rimi, a founder and the leader of al-Qa’ida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and a deputy to al-Qa’ida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri. Rimi joined al-Qa’ida in the 1990s, working in Afghanistan for Osama bin Laden,” The White House said in a statement.
“Under Rimi, AQAP committed unconscionable violence against civilians in Yemen and sought to conduct and inspire numerous attacks against the United States and our forces.”
“His death further degrades AQAP and the global al-Qa’ida movement, and it brings us closer to eliminating the threats these groups pose to our national security,” the statement continued.
“The United States, our interests, and our allies are safer as a result of his death. We will continue to protect the American people by tracking down and eliminating terrorists who seek to do us harm.”
Trump also authorized a raid targeting ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi which resulted in his death in October.
The next day, U.S. forces took out al-Baghdadi’s likely successor, Abu Hassan al-Muhajir, as he was being “smuggled across northern Syria in the back of an oil tanker truck."
