President Trump Says Osama Bin Ladenís Son Was Killed In Airstrike
National Interest ^ | 9/14/2019 | Chuck Ross

Posted on 09/14/2019 8:20:06 AM PDT by Eddie01

President Donald Trump confirmed Saturday a son of Osama bin Laden was killed during a U.S.-led counterterrorism operation along the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan.

“The loss of Hamza bin Ladin not only deprives al-Qa’ida of important leadership skills and the symbolic connection to his father, but undermines important operational activities of the group. Hamza bin Ladin was responsible for planning and dealing with various terrorist groups,” he continued.

It is unclear when Hamza bin Laden died, though it has been reported it was between 2017 and 2019.

The State Department put out a $1 million reward for information on Hamza bin Laden’s whereabouts earlier this year.

Good.

We need to continue to kill them, before they kill us, because their objectives hadn’t changed.

Excellent.
The only thing better would be to know that he was in excruciating pain for an hour or two before expiring.

When the last bastard wiling to die for his cause dies. Which in the case of Islam is when the last muslim dies, or the west converts. Think centuries ...

Now if we can hear that al-Baghdadi was blown to bits on that Isis-infested island in Iraq, my day will be better.

They don’t know when he was killed? I do not believe this. What so-called proof do they have? Trump repeating what is advisers have told him?

Still would like to know why Bush rounded up all the bin Laden family who were in the U.S and escorted them out of the country directly after the 9-11 attack???
