According to an ex-FBI agent Usama bin Laden’s son is planning to avenge the death of his father by fighting the USA and is expected to become the next leader of Al Qaeda.
Personal letters seized in the raid that killed bin Laden show that his son, Hamza, is set on continuing his father’s legacy, Ali Soufan, a former FBI agent, told CBS News in an interview that will air Sunday.
“He tells him that…he remembers ‘every look…every smile you gave me, every word you told me,’” Soufan said about bin Laden’s son. Soufan also said that Hamza wrote that he considers himself “to be forged in steel.”
According to the former FBI agent Hamza was being prepared to head al Qaeda by participating in the propaganda videos of bin Laden. In some of the cases the young boy was holding a gun.
Hamza, who is believed to be about 28 years old now, has recorded four audio messages in the last two years, aimed at the U.S.
“He’s basically saying, ‘American people, we’re coming and you’re going to feel it,” Soufan said. “And we’re going to take revenge for what you did to my father. Iraq, Afghanistan’. The whole thing was about vengeance.”
According to Soufan bin Laden’s son even sounds like his father and uses the same terminology and sentences he used.
Hamza has been named as a “specially designated global terrorist” by the U.S.
