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.
Yuck...Son of bin...just what we need.
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.
Isn’t he the son who had been hanging out in Iran since the day Afghanistan fell to the coalition?
McCain would go before Romney or the others...
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.
I've never cared for sequels
Come think of it we really don’t know how many rug rats that Bin Laden has I hear last time I hear he has about 10 or 50
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.
Don’t forget in radical islam do they marry their first cousins
Cue the Delievrance theme song
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.
He has FIFTY?? I heard he only 19 kids total on some other thread....geez no wonder the Mohammedan population is so large.
