Osama's Son 'Led Bhutto Death Squad'
Sky News ^ | February 03, 2008 | Sky

Posted on 02/03/2008 12:37:34 PM PST by Tigen

Osama bin Laden's 16-year-old son led a suicide bomb squad sent to kill Pakistan opposition leader Benazir Bhutto, according to her own claims.

Before she was assassinated in December the former prime minister claimed she had been warned that four such death teams would try to kill her.

And the naming of bin Laden's teenage son, Hamza, could now strengthen claims that he is being groomed as a future leader of the al Qaeda terror group. In 2001, he appeared in a joint Taliban and al Qaeda video of a militant attack on a Pakistan army camp in South Waziristan, near the Afghan border.

In September, he was described in reports as a senior al Qaeda leader who had been waging a jihad, or holy war, in lawless tribal areas.

Bhutto was killed during a rallyIn excerpts published from her autobiography, Ms Bhutto said the other people who sent squads were "Taliban warlord Baitullah Mehsud, Red Mosque militants and a Karachi-based militant group".

She claimed the information on plans to murder her had come from Pakistan's President Pervez Musharraf and a "foreign Muslim government".

Ms Bhutto also wrote about the suicide bomb attack on her motorcade in Karachi when she returned home in October.

She said it may have been carried out by a would-be assassin who lined the clothes of a toddler with plastic explosives to turn the child into a bomb.

She says a man gestured to her to hold the child, before trying to hand it to police in a nearby van, which exploded soon after.

Does the kid know that John McCain has guaranteed that he will kill Osama? I suggest that, should he win the presidency, we demand that he go to Pakistan the day after the inauguration to make good on that applause line.

They hate us because they have no hope nor future. If we hadn't attacted Iraq, he'd be minding his own business chasing girls at Oxford. It's all Bush's fault /s

Interesting - leaves a lot of room for speculation but could be another “Bin something or another” is trying to make a name for himself - keep an eye on those nukes.

If we don’t reciprocate - by conducting targeted assassinations of enemy leaders — we are NOT determined to win this war between the barbarians of militant Islam and the western civilizations...

Attempting to travel the “moral path” will lead to the destruction of moral society...

The militant Islamists MUST be delivered the maximum level of destruction, with no place to hide..

I think Bhutto was nuts. This “from the grave” stuff was first aimed at Musharraf; now it’s sonny Osama.

Ummmm....not if he keeps getting picked to run point on suicide bomb squads.

A very short life span for that line of work, dont you know.

Don’t worry - Obama wants to have a summit with Osama and Osama’s son so they can air their grievances.

He’s trying to bring change!!! /s

And maybe open the doors for a little more jihad either through design or stupidity

There are enough bin Ladens out there to have a civil war among themselves. The head of Alqaida, Saad, is in Iran. The peacenik Omar is in England. Now this Hanza kid is running around. Must be hundreds of them.

He had 50 sons. Who knows how many daughters, and the grandkids are possibly beyond number already. If only three are interested in this islamic insanity one side or the other that’s probably a good sign.

I believe actually it is the moral path, because this is self-defense - civilized nations defending themselves against terrorists who have declared and waged war, both in word and deed, for about the past 35 years. The strategy should be simple, call it targeted assassinations if you like, find him, kill him; they started it, we must finish it.

SIXTEEN year old? Geez! That’s sick. I thought Hamza was much older....must be thinking of one of the other 19 bin Laden juniors.

Since bin means "son of," shouldn't his full name be Hamza bin Osama bin Laden? The good thing about Arab names having family connections in them, especially in this case, is it makes the bad guys easy to track.

It was a stupid move driven by their hatred and misogyny. She was representing their interests better than they could have themselves by making Pervie’s like miserable. Had she succeeded in toppling him, it would have created an al-Q shaped vacuum in Paki leadership.

Somebody ought to write an opera about the downfall of Bhutto. It had an element of fatalism that would be perfect for melodrama.

Uh, no. I think that was Hillary Clinton.

His name will soon be Bin FUBARed!

Why conduct targeted assassinations and take the low road when we could avoid it by killing them all and letting God sort them out. I'd love to Firebomb Waziristan and then send in General Sherman and company to walk the place in a line and kill anything left living or just test a neutron bomb to see if they really work as advertised. I I were elected I'd give that sh1t-hole of anarchy 24 hours to give me Osama's head on a platter and commence to exterminating the region until his head appeared or they were all neutralized. And then I'd ask the other mohammedan nations "Who wants to be next?"

This kid would be doing the same thing he is now , but would be alot more of a threat . Remember we invaded Iraq after 9/11 . I dont really agree with the ongoing war , but I do believe we should wipe the terrorists off the map . The other thing is we shouldnt be teaching all of these barbarians at our elite schools . That evil little dirt roach would be doing this no matter what Bush did . Now at least they know a predator drone can pop up at any time and end the madness that THEY started .
