Hamza bin Laden, the son of the late al-Qaida leader, has married the daughter of Mohammed Atta, the lead hijacker in the 9/11 terror attacks, according to his family.

The union was confirmed by Osama bin Laden’s half-brothers during an interview with the Guardian. Ahmad and Hassan al-Attas said they believed Hamza had taken a senior position within al-Qaida and was aiming to avenge the death of his father, shot dead during a US military raid in Pakistan seven years ago.

Hamza bin Laden is the son of one of Osama bin Laden’s three surviving wives, Khairiah Sabar, who was living with her husband in a compound in Abbottabad, near a large Pakistani military base, when he was killed. He has since made public statements urging followers to wage war on Washington, London, Paris and Tel Aviv and is seen as a deputy to the terrorist group’s current leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri.

“We have heard he has married the daughter of Mohammed Atta,” said Ahmad al-Attas. “We’re not sure where he is, but it could be Afghanistan.”

Western intelligence agencies have been increasingly focusing on the whereabouts of Hamza bin Laden over the past two years, seeing him as more likely than anyone else to galvanise followers. His marriage to the daughter of Atta, an Egyptian national, appears to confirm that the 9/11 alumni remains a central hub of al-Qaida and that the organisation itself continues to be organised around Osama bin Laden’s legacy.

Good lord! :doh:

I just can't figure out if this is just the shtick you use while posting here or if this is you in real life.
Identifying narcissists isn't difficult. Just look for the person who is constantly fishing for compliments
and admiration while breaking down over even the slightest bit of criticism.

We have the freedom to choose our actions, but we do not get to choose our consequences.

Amen. We don't know these people. We do know that love is a powerful force that has altered history. Look at Antony and Cleopatra. Look at Prince Edward and Wallace Simpson, at Pierre and Marie Curie. Look at Wesley and Buttercup. :)

Henry Stimson was Harry Truman's Secretary of War. Initially Truman's bomb list included Kyoto. Stimson was strongly against the bombing of Kyoto for various reasons, but the reason he used to persuade Truman to give Kyoto a pass was that it had been the site of the Stimsons' honeymoon and he had a great fondness for it. Truman was moved by this, and he struck the city of Kyoto from the list. Even if this is myth, it still makes a good story. History is full of such stories.

So anything can happen.

I like how you march to your own drumbeat, Ax. That is not always easy to do. It's a lot easier to deride from the safety of the crowd. I don't always agree with you, but I admire your unique perspective and your willingness to share it here.

Heh... you admire Ax for marching to a different drumbeat, but you call me an Asshole for the same thing.
