Fear of surveillance haunted Bin Laden

This image grab from an undated video released by the US Department of Defence on May 7, 2011 reportedly shows Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden watching television at his compound in Abbottabad, PakistanOsama Bin Laden’s last years at his final hideout were haunted by his accurate hunch that he was hunted by a remorseless and technologically advanced foe. According to a letter that was declassified on Wednesday and provided by the CIA to AFP — which cannot independently confirm its authenticity — Bin Laden warned one of his wives travelling from Iran to rejoin him to take special care. “Before Um Hamza arrives here, it is necessary for her to leave everything behind, including clothes, books, everything that she had in Iran… Everything that a needle might possibly penetrate,” Bin Laden wrote, in a letter dated September 26, 2010.
