Before Libi was canned, he had giant plans. From UPI, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist:
WASHINGTON, Dec. 23 (UPI) — Before he was captured last spring, Osama bin Laden’s top operational commander planned to assassinate U.S. President George Bush, it was reported Friday….
The capture last May of al-Qaida’s No. 3 leader, Abu Faraj Al-Libi, apparently thwarted plots to assassinate the two partners in the global war on terror, according to a senior Pakistani official. His information was reported corroborated by two senior U.S. counterterrorism officials.
“Al-Libi had one mission: Kill Bush and Musharraf,” the Pakistani official told the Daily News. “He wanted to kill Bush in the White House, preferably.”
“It was clearly something they wanted to do. It’s the holy grail of jihad,” a senior U.S. counterterrorism official confirmed.
