Bin Laden had ‘no clue’ about Sept. 11 retaliation – wtop.com

“Osama bin Laden had no idea the U.S. would hit al-Qaida as hard as it has since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, a former bin Laden associate tells WTOP in an exclusive interview.
‘I’m 100 percent sure they had no clue about what was going to happen,’ says Noman Benotman, who was head of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group in the summer of 2000.
‘What happened after the 11th of September was beyond their imagination, ‘ says Benotman, who adds that al-Qaida thought the U.S. was a ‘paper tiger.'”
