Sifting bin Laden’s nose gold

It’s to laugh. And at least US anonymoids admit it was “little more than a fantasy”:

Osama bin Laden’s personal files revealed a brazen idea to hijack oil tankers and blow them up at sea last summer, creating explosions he hoped would rattle the world’s economy and send oil prices skyrocketing, the U.S. said Friday.

The newly disclosed plot showed that while bin Laden was always scheming for the next big strike that would kill thousands of Americans, he also believed a relatively simpler attack on the oil industry could create a worldwide panic that would hurt Westerners every time they gassed up their cars.

“Hurt westerners every time they gassed up their cars.”

Didn’t get out of his mansion much.

Me, I’m waiting for the journal entry on an electromagnetic pulse attack plot to drop.
