The public is getting a rare look inside the mind of Osama bin Laden.

More than 6,000 documents seized in the raid that killed the Al Qaeda leader are now online. The Combating Terrorism Center at West Point published the papers on its web site.

The documents are in bin Laden’s own words and were released in English translations and in their original Arabic.

U-S Navy SEALs found the materials on dozens of computers and hard drives during their raid on his Pakistan compound last year.

Along with the documents are several digital audio and video files.

Excerpt:

“Will there be another “Bin Ladin”? If Bin Ladin’s instructions are closely followed, then
the world might hear from Hamza bin Ladin, if he is still alive.218 Bin Ladin intended for
his son Hamza — who was released by the Iranians — to go to Qatar to pursue studies
in religious sciences and preach to the umma the message of jihad. Unlike Arab rulers
whom he abhors, Bin Ladin could not be accused of nepotism, and he certainly did not
intend for his son to monopolize the right to preach jihadi discourse.”
