ISIS was too brutal even for Osama bin Laden?
Osama bin Laden was not quite comfortable with the then rising new Islamic extremist group warning its extreme brutality could damage al-Qaeda’s reputation, The Daily Mail claimed quoting a 21-page letter found at bin Laden’s compound after his killing.
The document urged the Al-Qaeda to cut all ties with the Islamic State group, known at that time as the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIS), the Daily Mail reported.
The letter listed the violent crimes committed by the ISIS as reasons why Al-Qaeda should cut the connection with the group, among them the use of chlorine gas as a chemical weapon, bombing mosques and killing Catholics in a church in the Iraqi capital Baghdad.
The letter wasn’t drafted by Osama bin Laden himself, but by a top Al-Qaeda official, according to the report.
