FDD’s Long War Journal
Host: Thomas Joscelyn
A newly-released video shows Hamza bin Laden’s wedding, providing the first publicly-available images of him as a young man.
The video, which is split into two segments, was found in the materials seized during the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound in May 2011. The CIA has released the footage, along with hundreds of thousands of other documents, images, and computer files …
FDD’s Long War Journal also assesses that the wedding took place in Iran, where Hamza was held in a form of house arrest or imprisonment on and off for several years. His marriage to the daughter of Abu Mohammed al-Masri, a senior al Qaeda military leader, has previously been discussed in The Exile: The Stunning Inside Story of Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda in Flight, a book by Cathy Scott-Clark and Adrian Levy, as well as in a profile authored by former FBI agent Ali Soufan for the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point.
