U.S. officials are analyzing one million pages of data from the trove found in Osama bin Laden’s compound during the raid that killed him, and say they have learned more in the past ten days than in the past 10 years.
Among the things they’ve learned is that the al Qaeda leader wanted to find a way to kill President Obama.
Bin Laden’s own writings discovered at his compound indicate he urged his followers to assassinate the President, and find ways to disrupt the 2012 American elections.
“I would say this is probably very personal on bin Laden’s part, to kill a President that he believes has violated the Muslim faith,” said Brad Garrett,” an ABC News consultant and former FBI profiler. “He is incensed, inflamed, obsessed about killing the President.”
