OBL Letters revealed
The Pentagon has released private letters written by Osama Bin Laden, collected a year ago in Pakistan during the raid that killed the al-Qaeda leader. In the letters, OBL frets about his image, his legacy, and the in-fighting among underlings. In one instance, he admonishes an al-Qaeda member for breaking a covenant by lying on an immigration form. In the twisted logic of OBL, defying an oath is verbotn, but not the mass murder of thousands of innocents. Go figure.
