Eight years after a Navy SEAL team shot and killed Osama bin Laden, the U.S. government is offering $1 million for help tracking down the son of the Sept. 11 mastermind. The State Department announced Thursday it would give out the reward for help locating Hamza bin Laden.

“He has released audio and video messages on the Internet, calling on his followers to launch attacks against the United States and its Western allies, and he has threatened attacks against the United States in revenge for the May 2011 killing of his father by U.S. military forces,” the State Department said.

In 2017, the State Department added Hamza bin Laden to its Specially Designated Global Terrorist list after he was “determined to have committed, or pose a serious risk of committing, acts of terrorism that threaten the security of U.S. nationals or the national security.”

The U.S. also said that Hamza bin Laden married the daughter of Mohammed Atta, the lead hijacker in the 9/11 attacks. This fact was initially reported by Guardian journalist Martin Chulov, who interviewed Osama bin Laden’s family last summer.

“So what [the family] would say is that 9/11 alumni remains very viable and very real even 17 years after the fact,” Chulov told CBSN in August.

Chulov said that while there has been speculation that Hamza bin Laden is in Pakistan, he believes it is more likely that he is in Afghanistan.


The RewardsForJustice website reads:

Hamza bin Laden is the son of deceased former al-Qa’ida leader Usama bin Laden and is emerging as a leader in the al-Qa’ida franchise. He has released audio and video messages on the Internet, calling on his followers to launch attacks against the United States and its Western allies.The U.S. government is offering rewards for information about Hamza bin Laden. Absolute confidentiality is assured and relocation may be available. If you have information, please contact the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate or info@rewardsforjustice.net.

Hamza married the daughter of Mohammed Atta, the lead hijacker and a mastermind of al-Qa’ida’s September 2001 airline terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. Usama bin Laden’s letters seized from the Abbottabad, Pakistan compound where bin Laden was killed indicate that he was grooming Hamza to replace him as leader of al-Qa’ida.

The United Nations Security Council added Hamza bin Laden to its sanctions list on Thursday. He is subject to an assets freeze and travel ban. Saudi Arabia’s foreign ministry announced on Friday that it was stripping him of his Saudi nationality.

Two years ago the CIA released a massive trove of files that were found on a computer in Osama bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Audio and video footage included with these documents appeared to indicate that Hamza bin Laden’s wedding was held in Iran, according to an analysis by the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a think tank based in Washington, D.C.

Michael Evanoff, an assistant secretary for diplomatic security at the State Department, said that while Hamza bin Laden is likely hiding near the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan, he may try to cross into Iran or even head toward south central Asia.

“He could be anywhere, though,” he said in a Thursday news briefing.

  1. It is only a matter of time. I think President Trump will turn this over to people who will ‘git ‘er done’.

  3. Maybe it’s time to end that DNA strain right down to their pet goats! Wipe out the whole line! Time for them to understand that there will be a high price to pay for terrorism!

If sharia keeps spreading, you will not only be silenced by the media and big technology, you will be jailed - or worse. Speak while you can!
