EXCLUSIVE: Terrorism expert Scott Horton reveals Osama bin Laden was joyous when George Bush was elected president

Jack Posobiec hosted anti-war expert Scott Horton on his show, Human Events, Thursday where he revealed that Osama Bin Laden’s son told Rolling Stone that his father was “so happy” when former President George W Bush was elected in a 2010 interview.

Horton argued that 9/11 was not the result of radical Islam, but rather political tension and that even “the most radical sects of Sunni Islam” such as Salafism and Wahhabism have not attacked the United States in the past.

He explained that the 9/11 attack “was bin Laden and his particular group him and his alliance with Egyptian Islamic Jihad, that had this political ideology that they wanted to take on the American empire first, so [they] can have [their] local revolutions later.”

“And I don't want to say Bush fell for it in a way that equips him and says that he was just a big dummy,” Horton continued. “Because in fact, the purpose of the September 11 attack was to give Bush a crisis to exploit.”

He reported that “Bin Laden’s son Omar gave an interview to Rolling Stone magazine in 2010, and he said, ‘I was in Afghanistan in the year 2000 and when Bush was elected, my father was so happy.’”

Horton noted that Bin Laden pegged Bush as “a president who will attack and who will spend money and break the country.”

Referring back to Bush he expanded, “In other words, the big fake macho cowboy hat wearing, pampered — not really — tough guy from Connecticut is going to … exploit this cynically.”
