So now we are apparently supposed to believe that while Biden’s ineptitude was blazingly obvious to Osama, sitting in his Pakistan hideout half a world away, that ineptitude was not at all clear to a man who, love him or hate him, has proven himself to be one of the canniest political operatives on the scene today.
Bin Laden’s plan was apparently to have Barack Obama killed so that Joe Biden would become president. The jihad terror leader wrote that Obama and General David Petraeus should be targeted for murder, explaining: “The reason for concentrating on them is that Obama is the head of infidelity and killing him automatically will make [Vice President] Biden take over the presidency. Biden is totally unprepared for that post, which will lead the U.S. into a crisis. As for Petraeus, he is the man of the hour … and killing him would alter the war’s path.” This was apparently not just idle talk: Osama seems to have instructed one of his most trusted jihadis, Ilyas Kashmiri, to assassinate Obama, and wrote to a lieutenant: “Please ask brother Ilyas to send me the steps he has taken into that work.” Before he could kill Barack Obama, however, Kashmiri was himself killed in a U.S. drone strike, and bin Laden himself was killed by Navy SEALs not long after that. An increasing number of people agree that Joe Biden now seems to be in the throes of rapidly advancing dementia, but he has never been known as the sharpest knife in the drawer. In August 2019, months before the suspicions of dementia began to be discussed openly, an Iowa voter said: “Well, I like Biden, he just keeps saying dumb stuff.” Barack Obama might have agreed: as far back as the 2008 campaign, his frustration at his dim bulb of a running mate boiled over as he exclaimed, “How many times is Biden gonna say something stupid?” Observations that Biden was not very bright go back to the beginning of his political career.

Not much of a "master" plan...

Unless of course people buy into the new conspiracy that he's still alive and the SEAL Team that wasted him is all dead.
