Osama bin Laden’s son has picked a career. The apple didn’t fall far from the tree.
Hamza bin Laden was only ten years old when the September 11 attacks took place. He is now 26, and he is going into the family business. Even after U.S. Navy Seals killed his father and older brother in a 2011 raid, he followed their path.
U.S. officials added Hamza bin Laden to its terrorism blacklist after al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri formally named him as a member of the terrorist group, according to a State Department press release.
The Obama administration uncovered a 2015 audio recording in which the younger bin Laden had called for jihadists to launch attacks against Western capitals, specifically Washington, D.C., Paris, and Tel Aviv.
The State Department names individuals to its list of Specially Designated Global Terrorists after they are “determined to have committed, or pose a serious risk of committing, acts of terrorism that threaten the security of U.S. nationals or the national security.” The classification automatically invokes sanctions on the individual.
The Obama administration also imposed penalties against bin Laden’s older son, Ibrahim al-Banna, who serves as a senior leader of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.
Anyone wonder what sort of idiot would become a terrorist after his father became the most hunted man on Earth? Did he seriously think he could escape the scrutiny of the U.S. government?
After Donald Trump becomes President, the “sanctions” Hamza bin Laden suffers come courtesy of our military.
