And this is coming from an extremely brutal terrorist enterprise.
According to Obama however, they’re just JV al-Qaida light.
So wicked that even Al Qaeda disowned them: Letter found at Bin Laden’s hideout warned of Islamic State’s extreme brutality
- 21-page letter found at the Pakistan hideout where Bin Laden was killed
- Note said Islamic State of Iraq and Syria could damage Al Qaeda’s reputation
- Memo documented acts of barbarism including bombing mosques
- ISIS, now called Islamic State, has control of area larger than Great Britain
Lying among a pile of papers at the hideout in Pakistan where Osama Bin Laden was shot dead was a carefully worded 21-page letter.
It warned of the rise of a new and ruthless group of Islamic extremists capable of such extreme brutality that Al Qaeda should sever all links with them.
In fact, it claimed the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (or ISIS) had such complete disregard for civilian life that it could damage the reputation of Al Qaeda – if such a thing were possible for an organisation that has long traded in murderous terrorism.
The document, written by one of Bin Laden’s senior officials in 2011, went on to catalogue some of its acts of barbarism – including the use of chlorine gas as a chemical weapon, bombing mosques and a massacre in a Catholic church in Baghdad.
In essence, the letter said that ISIS was simply too extreme even for the group that killed thousands in the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001.
Today, ISIS, which now styles itself as simply Islamic State (IS), has become a powerful military force that has control of an area larger than Great Britain.
