A report says that terror mastermind Osama bin Laden wanted to assassinate President Barack Obama because Joe Biden is so incompetent that he would have thrown the U.S. into chaos if he had taken over after Obama’s death.
The revelation was found in records seized from bin Laden’s Pakistan compound when U.S. forces put an end to his miserable life in 2011.
The plot to kill Obama was first reported by the Washington Post back in 2012. The plan was to take out Obama and U.S. military commander David Petraeus as they traveled by plane.
“The reason for concentrating on them is that Obama is the head of infidelity and killing him automatically will make [Vice President] Biden take over the presidency,” bin Laden wrote to one of his top deputies. “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.
Bin Laden had suggested that terrorist Ilyas Kashmiri should be contracted to shoot down Obama’s plane.
“Please ask brother Ilyas to send me the steps he has taken into that work,” bin Laden wrote to Atiyah Abd al-Rahman, according to the secret documents.
Ilyas Kashmiri himself didn’t last too much longer after the missive was written as he was taken out by a U.S. drone strike in 2011.
Biden has lied repeatedly about his role in the death of bin Laden.
In 2012 he insisted that he opposed the U.S. hit on the terror leader.
“Mr. President, my suggestion is, don’t go,” Biden said he told Obama. “We have to do two more things to see if he’s there.”
Obama even admitted that Biden opposed the plan to kill bin Laden, telling Mitt Romney in a 2012 presidential debate, “Even some in my own party, including my current vice president, had the same critique as you did.”
But, by 2015, Biden was revising history and claiming he told Obama that he should eliminate the terror kingpin.
