Taliban: Islamists Planning to Mount Attacks in Response to Death of Osama Bin Laden


By Ghaith Abdul-Ahad – “A Taliban commander in Afghanistan has promised that his fighters would mount attacks to avenge the killing by US forces of Osama bin Laden.

The commander, who gave his name as Qudos and operates in the northern province of Baghlan, said: “The killing of Osama bin Laden will bring no change to jihad. Osama is the leader of al-Qaida and he is a powerful man in jihad. Losing him will be very painful for the mujahideen, but the shahadat [martyrdom] of Osama, will never stop the jihad. We will continue our fight until we liberate our lands from the Kafirs.”

He said his fighters planned to launch an operation called Bader “to avenge the killing of Osama” and claimed many other similar operations would be launched.” Read more.

The death of the world’s most wanted terrorist has security experts at all levels of government concerned that bin Laden’s loyal and fanatical followers could launch a series of deadly attacks.

‘Though bin Laden is dead, al-Qaeda is not,’ said CIA Director Leon Panetta. ‘The terrorists almost certainly will attempt to avenge him, and we must—and will—remain vigilant and resolute. But we have struck a heavy blow against the enemy.’

Former chief of staff to President George W. Bush, Andrew Card, told ABC News that reprisal attacks could already be planned.”  Read more.

From Omar bin Laden’s up-close look at the next generation of mujahideen and al Qaeda training camps he says the worst may lie ahead, that if his father is killed America may face a broader and more violent enemy, with nothing to keep them in check.” Read more.
