Osama Bin Laden’s Skeleton Speaks from Joe Biden’s Closet
It has been a while that Osama Bin Laden trended on twitter — It resurfaced only to haunt as a ghost from the past of American presidential nominee Joe Biden.
Heads Up! Osama Bin Laden Planned to Assassinate Obama

Reportedly, Osama Bin Laden wanted to assassinate then-President Barack Obama so that ‘totally unprepared’ Vice President Biden could lead America in a crisis.
Declassified documents retrieved from inside Al-Qaeda’s founder Laden’s Pakistani compound in 2011 revealed his intentions. The document was first reported by The Washington Post back in 2012.
Osama’s Letter With Intent to Assassinate Obama
Bin Laden revealed his intent in a letter, instructing a top Al-Qaeda official to create two groups. Watch parties to keep an eye on US aircraft visiting the region that could be carrying then-CIA Director David Petraeus or Obama.
Osama’s aim was to have Ilyas Kasmiri, Al Qaeda’s military operations chief in Pakistan, shoot down the plane carrying Obama. He had given specific instruction to ‘not target visits by US Vice President Joe Biden. He wrote:
The reason for concentrating on them is that Obama is the head of infidelity and killing him will automatically make Biden take over the presidency for the remainder of the term, as it is the norm over there. Biden is totally unprepared for that post, which will lead the United States into a crisis.
Biden Didn’t Want to Kill Osama
In May 2011 in the White House Situation Room, Joe Biden was part of Obama’s team of national security experts. The question ahead of them was whether to order a Special Forces raid to take out Osama bin Laden.
“Mr. President, my suggestion is don’t go,” Biden recounted counselling his President in Maryland for congressional Democrats.
Obama ignored his deputy and ordered Navy SEAL Team 6 to take down the 9/11 culprit Bin Laden. It was a historic triumph for America.
Later in 2015 Fox News interview, Biden changed his stance on the Navy SEAL story. On being enquired about his suggestion to not to go after bin Laden that day by the reporter, ‘No, I didn’t,’ Biden said.
Interview, Vice President Joe Biden said he was the last man with Obama before he made his decision on conducting the raid:
Later confirming Biden’s position against the strike Obama told Fox News, ‘Even some in my own party, including my current vice president, had the same critique as you did.’
Joe Biden prides himself on his judgement about world affairs. A student of foreign policy since 1970s Biden was criticised by Robert Gates, Obama Secretary of Defense. In his memoir, Gates wrote, “(Biden’s) wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”
Trump’s Stance on Terrorism
While Biden has shown signs of hesitation in killing terrorists, Donald Trump has none. Trump had been hunting down terrorists including likes of the leader of al-Qa’ida Qasim al-Rimi in the Arabian Peninsula.
The official statement from the White House said:
At the direction of President Donald J. Trump, the United States conducted a counterterrorism operation in Yemen that successfully eliminated Qasim al-Rimi, the leader of al-Qa’ida… We will continue to protect the American people by tracking down and eliminating terrorists who seek to do us harm.
Back in January, on Trump’s orders Iranian terrorist leader Qassem Soleimani, Commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force was killed.
Trump administration notably took care of Osama bin Laden’s son, Hamza bin Laden, who was believed to be in line to take over Al Qaeda and who had repeatedly threatened to attack the U.S.
