'Bin Laden's last days in Abbottabad were similar to Hilter's in Berlin bunker'
Washington, May 4 (ANI): According to declassified documents released by the US, it has emerged that Osama bin Laden spent his last days in the Abbottabad compound similar to how Hitler spent inside a bunker in Berlin.
The documents claim that in his final days, Osama was still ordering attack after attack on "only the Americans," but it wasn't clear if any of his orders were being carried out.
"I'm reminded of the final days of Adolf Hitler in the bunker in Berlin, when he was giving orders for divisions and armies to be moved around and those divisions and armies didn't exist," ABC News quoted former White House counter-terror advisor Richard Clarke, as saying.
Documents released by the Combating Terror Center at West Point showed bin Laden asking for updates on a plot "using poison" that was being planned by one al Qaeda team in Yemen, just days before he was killed in a U.S. raid in May 2011.
It has also emerged that bin Laden sought 10 new recruits who were willing to "study aviation" and "conduct suicide operations," apparently in plans for a second 9/11-style attack.
The documents also reveal bin Laden's order to assassinate President Obama, and not to target Vice President Biden, because bin Laden believed Biden was "totally unprepared" to become president and by assuming the post would "lead the U.S. into a crisis."
Bin Laden believed that Al Qaeda affiliates like the Taliban and al Shabaab had hurt the reputation of Al Qaeda in the Muslim world with attacks that claimed Muslim lives.
"He pushed categorically to stop mass casualty bombings, especially of Muslims. He was involved in trying to back off Al Qaeda in Iraq from killing a range of Muslims. ... In North Africa . . . he tried to back off al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb from killing some French hostages because he didn't want the full force of the French to come down on him," Seth Jones, author of the just-released book "Hunting in the Shadows: The Pursuit of al Qa'ida Since 9/11", was quoted as saying.
