Osama Bin-Laden Planned to Use Disgruntled Blacks to Attack the US

Osama bin Laden aspired to damage the United States not only throughpersistent terror attacks, but also by attempting to inflame race and class tensions in hopes of tearing down the country from the inside out, according to officials briefed on the evidence trove recovered from the al Qaeda leader’s Pakistan compound.

According to materials in the cache of documents recovered in theĀ U.S. Navy SEAL raid that brought down the terror leader, bin Laden planned to specifically recruit African-American Muslim converts to carry out attacks on the homeland. The goal was to not only kill and maim in the actual operations, but to create a divisiveness that would cause more damage than al Qaeda could ever hope to do on their own.

“Because there were many blacks in the U.S., he wanted to capitalize on them to further the jihadi cause,” one U.S. official told ABC News. “Al Qaeda sees the black convert community as ripe for recruiting.”

While it has long been known that radical preachers and some prison imams have targeted the convert community for jihad recruitment, the references show core al Qaeda’s keen interest in the tactic.

“This is pretty heady stuff,” another person briefed on the material said.

But it’s also strategy that civil rights activist and President of the National Action Network Rev. Al Sharpton said was “radical” and outrageous.

“I think it would be the most cynical abuse of African-Americans and America in general,” Sharpton told ABC News. “Remember, Osama bin Laden killed blacks, whites, Latinos, everyone on 9/11… For him to use race relations in the U.S. in a way to support his terroristic barbarism is the absolute height of cynicism.”

    “by attempting to inflame race and class tensions in hopes of tearing down the country from the inside out,” The U.S. ruling class is already doing a far better job of this than bin Laden could ever have had the power to carry out. More than two million people, most of them Black and Latin, in prison. Thousands killed by police every year. Most in majority Black and Latin cities condemned to living in poverty. Busting unions, foreclosing on millions illegally, while corporations and banks make insane profits. Impoverished youth forced into the military by the economic draft, to die and be maimed fighting even more impoverished peoples. Bombing Africa (Libya) while celebrating the assassination of bin Laden after murdering the grandchildren of Gadhafi. This article and Sharpton’s stance are giving further ammunition to the ruling class to frame up and assassinate impoverished Blacks at home, such as Imam Luqman Abdullah here in Detroit. Where was Sharpton after the FBI and police shot the Imam 21 times in 2009? Nowhere to be seen. Quit allowing yourselves to be USED by the ruling class!

    In which case, it was appropriate for President Obama to be the one to take him out. For too long we Blacks have been the stooges to carry out the evil bidding of others.

    Here the point you would think White People would wake up and relize they are the most hated race in the world for the evil their ancestor and peer have done or doing to African People and people of color all over the world! Its not about being a stool pegion for other people its about being vounble and restment over 400 years! The problem is this As long as you have Racism/ White Supremcacy you will have people like Bin Laden who know the history of Africans living in America and will use that history to push their own Angenda! Until Whites are willing to come to the table and talk I mean real converson about race you will have the Bin Laden of the world exploting African People and people of color!

    If you look at all the high profile spy cases in America since the 1970’s. They have a few things in common. Such as they were committed by white folks who were ex-military and were disgruntled.
