TOO STUPID TO LIVE:

Osama bin Laden sought 'new 9/11' to force US out of Middle East: Horde of writings on computers, flash drives and in diary reveal morbid emphasis on another atrocity (Ed Pilkington in New York and Declan Walsh in Islamabad, 5/12/11, The Guardian)

Osama bin Laden went to the bizarre length of trying to calculate how many more American deaths it would take to force the US to retreat from the Middle East, his writings have revealed.

The al-Qaida leader was convinced that only a massive blood-letting on the scale of 9/11 would have the necessary shock factor to effect a change in US policy around the region.


9-11 having worked out so well for al Qaeda? Even Japan didn't rebomb Pearl Harbor.
