The War in Iraq
Last Updated: Sep 19th, 2011 - 19:28:10


Afghan Warlord Warns US of Many 'bin Laden's'

A renegade Afghan warlord has warned U.S. forces in Iraq to expect suicide attacks from hundreds of what he termed "Osama bin Laden's."

In a statement released to the Afghan Islamic Press, Gulbuddin Hekmatyar said the war in Iraq triggered widespread Islamic hatred toward Americans that will be hard to wipe out.

He said the United States suffered a moral and political defeat in the conflict.

The Afghan rebel leader also said the U.S. victory in Iraq was the start of its attempts to control the entire Middle East.

Gulbuddin Hekmatyar is on the U.S. State Department's list of global terrorists. He heads Afghanistan's Hezb-i-Islami faction and has been suspected of teaming with Taleban and al-Qaida remnants to destabilize the Afghan government of President Hamid Karzai.

The Pakistan-based Afghan Islamic Press said his five-page statement in Pashtu was sent from an unknown location.

Washington blames al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden for the September 11, 2001, suicide attacks on the United States that killed some 3,000 people.
