Newly released papers from Osama Bin Laden's hideout reveal a frustrated al-Qaeda leader struggling to control an unruly network, the US military says.
The documents seized during the raid on the Abbottabad compound were posted online by the research wing of the US military academy, West Point.
The papers show he was unhappy with affiliates' attacks on fellow Muslims, urging them to target the US instead.
Seventeen documents were released from a cache of more than 6,000.
Other papers suggest Bin Laden ordered his militants to look out for opportunities to assassinate President Obama or David Petraeus during any of their visits to Pakistan and Afghanistan. Mr Petraeus, now CIA director, formerly commanded international forces in Afghanistan.
But Bin Laden warned them not to bother targeting Vice-President Joe Biden because "Biden is totally unprepared for that post [of president], which will lead the US into a crisis."
Which makes me wonder if bin Laden and some of his al Qaeda henchmen spent a significant amount of time here in the First State! Not that they'd actually need to to come to the conclusion OBL did ... !
