Bin Laden And Children
February 14, 2012 by staff
Bin Laden And Children, He was the world’s most wanted terrorist, but there are new reports that before his death last year, Osama bin Laden urged his children and grandchildren not to follow in his footsteps.
He was committed to a life and death struggle with the west, but an extended family member now claims Osama bin Laden didn’t want that for his children.
“You have to study, live in peace, and don’t do what I am doing or what I have done.” That quote is attributed to bin Laden by the brother of bin Laden’s youngest wife.
Zakaria al-Sadah relayed the remark to the Sunday Times of London. Al-Sadah told the Times, “Bin Laden advised his children and the grandchildren to go to Europe and America and get a good education.”
Can the brother-in-law be believed?
CNN National Security Analyst Peter Bergen says while living at the compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, bin Laden would more likely have discussed those topics with his wives and children than anything about operations.
“They know about what Bin Laden was eating, and they could tell you a bit about his routine. But Bin Laden wasn’t telling his wives, ‘Hey I’m planning to attack Chicago.’ Or anything like that. He would not have had those conversations with them,” said Bergen.
But Michael Scheuer, who once ran the bin Laden tracking unit at the CIA, is skeptical about bin Laden telling his offspring to take a different path.
[Reporter]: “Are you buying him saying that?”
