'Bin Laden plotted to kill Obama'

Washington, Mar 17: Osama Bin Laden, the world's most wanted fugitive was plotting to kill US President Barak Obama and another attack on America in his final days, said reports.

Reports also revealed that plot involved killing the US President and General David Petraeus, who was at that time the commander of ISAF forces in Afghanistan, by attacking their planes.

The US military claimed Osama's plan citing the documents seized by them after killing Osama, during the famous Navy Seal Team Six raid on his secret compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan last May.

According to a report published in the Washington Post, the rationale for murdering Obama was that Vice President Joe Biden would then become President. In Bin Laden’s judgment Biden was unprepared for the job and would lead the US into chaos. And as for Petraeus, Bin Laden believed killing him would radically change the course of the war in Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, the documents picked from Osama's compound in Pakistan will soon be disclosed to the public in both the original Arabic and English translations.
