Our war plan
"Destroy your Economy

"As someone said, to kill a snake you must cut off its head, and the body will die. We began with your World Trade Center which was the center and the symbol of your power. We suck hundreds of billions of dollars out of your country each year with our oil, which you have become addicted to. We use every single dollar that you send us in our war against you. Your politicians are a great help with their gigantic spending programs such as health care, climate control and many other things that are no longer affordable for you without more debt.
Once we destroy your economy, you are finished, as this has always been your method of achieving victory over your opponants"
Osama Bin Laden.
Paraphrased from various articles and sources and some license taken by the publisher.  Wilson Crabtree.

(Dont miss the hypothetical interview with Mr. bin Laden at the end of this short bio.)

  "Osama bin Laden was born in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. In a 1998 interview, he gave his birth date as March 10, 1957. His father Muhammed Awad bin Laden was a wealthy businessman with close ties to the Saudi royal family. Osama bin Laden was born the only son of Muhammed bin Laden's tenth wife, Hamida al-Attas. Osama's parents divorced soon after he was born; Osama's mother then married Muhammad al-Attas. The couple had four children, and Osama lived in the new household with three half-brothers and one half-sister.
Bin Laden was raised as a devout Wahhabi Muslim. From 1968 to 1976 he attended the "élite" secular Al-Thager Model School. Bin Laden studied economics and business administration at King Abdulaziz University. Some reports suggest bin Laden earned a degree in civil engineering in 1979, or a degree in public administration in 1981. Other sources describe him as having left university during his third year, never completing a college degree, though "hard working." At university, bin Laden's main interest was religion, where he was involved in both "interpreting the Quran and jihad" and charitable work. He also writes poetry.
In 1974, at the age of 17, bin Laden married his first wife Najwa Ghanem at Latakia. According to CNN national security correspondent David Ensore, as of 2002 bin Laden had married four women and fathered roughly 25 or 26 children. Other sources report that he has fathered anywhere from 12 to 24 children. Bin Laden believes that the restoration of Sharia law will set things right in the Muslim world, and that all other ideologies-"pan-Arabism, socialism, communism, democracy"-must be opposed. These beliefs, along with violent expansive jihad, have sometimes been called Qutbism. He believes Afghanistan under the rule of Mullah Omar's Taliban was "the only Islamic country" in the Muslim world. Bin Laden has consistently dwelt on the need for violent jihad to right what he believes are injustices against Muslims perpetrated by the United States and sometimes by other non-Muslim states, the need to eliminate the state of Israel, and the necessity of forcing the US to withdraw from the Middle East. He has also called on Americans to "reject the immoral acts of fornication (and) homosexuality, intoxicants, gambling, and usury," in an October 2002 letter.
Probably the most infamous part of Bin Laden's ideology is that civilians, including women and children, are legitimate targets of jihad. Bin Laden is anti-semitic, and has delivered warnings against alleged Jewish conspiracies: "These Jews are masters of usury and leaders in treachery. They will leave you nothing, either in this world or the next." Shia Muslims have been listed along with "Heretics,... America and Israel," as the four principal "enemies of Islam" at ideology classes of bin Laden's Al-Qaeda organization.
In keeping with Wahhabi beliefs, bin Laden opposes music on religious grounds,and his attitude towards technology is mixed. He is interested in "earth-moving machinery and genetic engineering of plants" on the one hand, but rejects "chilled water" on the other.
His viewpoints and methods of achieving them have led to him been designated as a "terrorist" by scholars, journalists from the New York Times, the British Broadcasting Corporation, and Qatari news station Al Jazeera, analysts such as Peter Bergen, Michael Scheuer, Marc Sageman, and Bruce Hoffman and he was indicted on terrorism charges by law enforcement agencies in Madrid, New York City, and Tripoli.


A hypothetical Gazette interview: We have all wanted to ask certain people certain questions which we know is an impossible wish, but the Gazette decided to proceed anyway with these certain questions for Osama Bin Laden...
1. Question "Do you feel that you are winning this war with Amerca?
Answer: "You had us on the run in the beginning but your people tire easily
and many of them believe this war to have been contrived by Bush and that they can simply quit and we will go away. Our master plan was always to destroy your economy by utilizing your weaknesses to defeat you in a long struggle. We are determined and Allah is with us"
2. Question "After defeating us, would you then set up Sharia law in America"?
Answer: "We already have hundreds of thousands of our believers in your country and, of course, Allah will use them, as he used our brother at Fort Hood to bring you down. Allah could have given the Oil to the jews but he gave it to us instead. Your oil dollars are a bountiful flood of good for our people in our war with America".
3. Question "What is your greatest fear and worry from America"?
Answer "That you will wake up and understand just what is at stake and pull together as you did following our victory on   9-11- 2001 at the World Trade Center ".
