Probably not a big threat at this point... this seems to be about putting out the possible brush fires that may flare back up.

Hamza bin Laden, Son of Qaeda Founder, Is Dead

Osama bin Ladenís son Hamza bin Laden, who was viewed as an eventual heir to the leadership of Al Qaeda and had repeatedly threatened to attack the United States, is dead, according to two American officials.

Details of the strike that killed him were scarce, including when and where. The United States government played a role in the operation, but it was not clear how, according to the officials, who discussed his death on the condition of anonymity because it involved sensitive operations and intelligence gathering.

Mr. bin Laden was killed sometime during the first two years of the Trump administration, officials said. He was killed before the State Department announced a $1 million reward for information about his whereabouts in February, but American military and intelligence agencies had not confirmed his death by then.

...
The C.I.A. has devastated Al Qaeda, relentlessly targeting its operatives after Sept. 11. The agency killed another son, Saad bin Laden, in a drone strike in 2009 while he was operating in a remote area of Pakistan. Another son, Khalid, was killed in the 2011 Abbottabad raid.


The real CIA... not Brennan's CIA... Good work.

LMAO...Ēthe real CIA.Ē

You donít know what youíre talking about. Who was running the CIA when the father and other brother were killed?

You trying to add partisanship to national security issues relative to covert operations makes you sound ludicrous. Brennan served his country. What have you done?

I'm sure Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, and perhaps AOC and Pocahontas feel a bit saddened by this news. Wasn't Bin Laden a freedom fighter struggling against Western imperialism and Zionism?

Glad you got a got laugh out of it.

I'm just distinguishing between what happens at the elite level, and the rank and file level.

What have I done? I pay their salaries. I pay for their surveillance equipment. I foot the bill.

John Brennan served at the elite level for over 2 decades. He wasnít rank and file.

You had no beef with John Brennan until Trump started chirping. Youíre coming off as a parrot.

Yes I was thinking the same. Omar must be especially devastated.

Uh, you do realize that Osama Bin Laden was killed during Brennan's watch, don't you ? Sorry to burst your little bubble there, but you need to know the facts.

I just want to make sure I give the CIA on the ground credit for their work.

Brennan is a long term liar.

July 2014 - CIA director John Brennan lied to you and to the Senate. Fire him
