#4 I'm not surprised. Bin Laden hoped he was the Hand of God, and speculated (while speaking in the tones of someone certain of this - what John Keegan call the Mask of Command) that Uncle Sam was the Great Satan and God would help him strike down the Great Satan. When no help from God materialized and men who had believed in bin Laden died in the tens of thousands, he realized that he had been wrong and wrong in a big way. If he did indeed say these words to his children, I'm guessing that his foundational beliefs including his belief in his mission, and perhaps in Islam, had been shaken to the core.

#6 What sayeth AYMAN + MULLAH OMAR, etal. to this???

And even iff presum that this Artic is true, why OBL to have + raise a Son to be the "CROWN PRINCE OF TERROR", i.e. as his Successor to AQ Chieftaincy.

Also, where one Sonny-boy is, IMO Osama prob had several others to follow + support in Jihad.
