2010 Letter from Osama bin Laden Surfaces with Prediction that ‘Biden…Will Lead the US Into a Crisis’

The world’s most infamous terrorist, Osama Bin Laden, had a good understanding of Joe Biden’s ineptitude going as far back as 2010. In a resurfaced letter, “Osama bin Laden once warned al Qaeda not to target Joe Biden because he believed that his inheriting the presidency if something were to happen to Barack Obama would ‘lead the US into a crisis” reports the New York Post.

The letter resurfaced after Biden’s horrendous display of US troop withdrawal from Afghanistan, allowing the Taliban to swiftly take over the country. Dated May of 2010, bin Laden instructed al Qaeda leaders on which American leaders to target. Then-President Obama and then-CIA director David Petraeus were to be targeted and assassinated, but not Joe Biden.

Bin Laden declared then-Vice President Joe Biden “totally unprepared” to lead the United States, and al Qaeda should place high priority to target aircrafts belonging to Obama and Petraeus.

“They are not to target visits by US Vice President Biden. The groups will remain on the lookout for Obama or Petraeus” bin Laden wrote. In essence, Biden was an asset to al Qaeda. Bin Laden explained to his followers how American politics works and why Biden was not to be targeted:

“The reason for concentrating on them is that Obama is the head of infidelity and killing him automatically will make Biden take over the pr3esidency for the remainder of the term, as it is the norm over there” bin Laden wrote.

“Biden is totally unprepared for that post, which will lead the US into a crisis.”

“As for Petraeus, he is the man of the house in the last year of the war, and killing him would alter the war’s path” the letter stated.

The New York Post reports bin Laden’s letter was found alongside “a treasure-trove of documents found in the terrorist’s Pakistan hideout when he was killed by US forces in a raid on May 2, 2011.” The found letters, dated between 2006 and 2011, are publicly available through West Point’s Combating Terrorism Center.
