    Among the documents related to former al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, released by the CIA, is a letter reportedly sent by his daughter Eman to Iranian leader Ali Khamenei. (excerpt) Another document, sent by al-Haj Osman (as he called himself) to Maulawi Azmari, a prominent al-Qaeda leader, sheds light on Iran’s support for al-Qaeda operatives. This finds mention in Bin Laden’s correspondence and reveals his role as the link between Iranian intelligence and al-Qaeda. In the letter, Osman mentions the details of the return of some elements of the organization to Iran to collect funds and fighters and to communicate...

    The voice is that of a soft-spoken 28-year-old, but the message is vintage Osama bin Laden, giving orders to kill. When the audio recording began turning up on jihadist websites two weeks ago, it was as if the dead terrorist was channeling himself through his favorite son. “Prepare diligently to inflict crippling losses on those who have disbelieved,” Hamza bin Laden, scion of the Sept. 11, 2001, mastermind, says in a thin baritone that eerily echoes his father. “Follow in the footsteps of martyrdom-seekers before you.” The recording, first aired May 13, is one in a string of recent pronouncements...

    A pilot may have been suffering from "mental overload" when he crash-landed, killing three members of Osama Bin Laden's family, an inquiry has found. The jet overshot the runway at Blackbushe Airport in July 2015 and crashed into a car auction site. The Air Accidents Investigations Branch (AAIB) said emergency warnings prior to landing may have "saturated the pilot's mental capacity". The pilot and three passengers survived the crash but died in a severe fire. Bin Laden's half-sister, Sana Mohammed Bin Laden, her mother, Raja Bashir Hashim, and his brother-in-law, Zuhair Hashim, were killed, along with pilot Mazen Al-Aqeel Da'jah...

"Here is Osama, living in a million-dollar compound, hiding behind women who were put in front of him as a shield," Brennan said. "It speaks to just how false his narrative has been over the year...he's putting other people out there" to wage jihad while he is secure in this luxury compound.
