Bin Laden, in his will, tells his children not to join Al Qaeda

If this is real, holy shit.

Although, it paints a very interesting portrait. Of a man holed up in Pakistan for years, looking back on his life and not seeing himself as the grand usher of Islamic supremacy, regretting not having spent time with his family. Very Ozymandias.

I think it was Richard Dawkins who said that, as unpalatable as it is to think about, Osama Bin Laden was a human being with a favorite movie, favorite food, goofy things he was scared of and such.

And it’s important to remember that, even while condemning his actions as vile. It doesn’t mean you sympathize with him or forgive him. Just means you see the whole person.
