    bin Laden wanted Obama killed so an "unprepared" Biden would take over.

    Intersting. My guess is once we leave Afghanistan they will take back over at some point.

    A Washington Post columnist reported, after viewing the documents, that they showed bin Laden instructed his deputies to organize special cells in Afghanistan and Pakistan to target Obama and Petraeus.
    "The reason for concentrating on them," bin Laden explained to his top lieutenant, according to the article, "is that Obama is the head of infidelity and killing him automatically will make (Vice President Joe) Biden take over the presidency."
    "Biden is totally unprepared for that post, which will lead the U.S. into a crisis," bin Laden continued. "As for Petraeus, he is the man of the hour ... and killing him would alter the war's path" in Afghanistan.

    He had an amateur analysis, formed by his backround and circumstances. He doesn't understand western democracies. He is over-personalizing his nemeses, as if America were a flea-bitten third world country whose fortunes truly rose or fell based on the personalities of a few individuals. Reality is, if any top leader in America falls, one of hundreds of individuals from either party could step in to key roles with nothing like the drop of you would see in a country like Afghanistan. And there would be no war of succession, or political crisis either.

    Thank God I live in a country like this. I really wish all countries could have the kind of mature political system first and second world countries enjoy. There would be fewer bin Ladens.

    For sure. Yet we are being criticized for trying to set up something like that in Afghanistan.<o></o>
