Bin Laden was surprised by US response to 9/11

WASHINGTON - Osama bin Laden had no idea the U.S. would hit al-Qaida as hard as it has since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, a former bin Laden associate tells WTOP in an exclusive interview.

"I'm 100 percent sure they had no clue about what was going to happen," says Noman Benotman, who was head of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group in the summer of 2000."

  1. OBL is an anti muslim, anti Shiite, anti Sufi, anti nonmuslim bigot. He is viscrally hated by the vast majority of Iraqis and Afghans.

    Even Pakistanis have turned against him. the same Pakistanis who backed OBL for decades.
