AP – Usama bin Laden is seen in a 1998 file photo.
U.S. officials are reviewing documents that suggest Usama bin Laden before his death urged his Al Qaeda network to attack the aircraft of President Obama and Gen. David Petraeus, Fox News has confirmed.
The directive was first disclosed in a report last summer, after a CIA-led Navy SEALs team took down bin Laden at his Pakistan compound. The Washington Post, though, reported new details of that alleged plan Friday after viewing the documents.
According to the report, bin Laden wanted Obama killed so that an “unprepared” Vice President Biden would take over.
