Osama bin Laden's son calls his father "evil" in a new book that he and his mother penned called Growing Up Bin Laden.
In making the public pronouncement, Omar bin Laden joins the rest of us in so assessing his terror king father. But there is one anecdote in the book that underscores the threat that the senior bin Laden and his ilk have on the rest of the world.
Omar bin Laden describes how his father took his beloved dogs and gassed them in a chemical warfare experiment.
The fact that he could do that to family pets gives additional insight into the depravity of OBL's mind. But it also reminds us how far he and al Qaeda are willing to go to bring down the western way of life. It's something we should never forget as the memory of the 9/11 attacks begins, for some, to fade.
