    The "war" Bush started only created a larger, and stronger, al Queda (It is now in 12 countries, and instead of a few hundred in Afghanistan, and Pakistan, now has thousands of members), and is now threatening the US:

    "When he was still a child, he used to appear in propaganda videos holding a gun, the former FBI agent said.

    "He was that kid that exhibited leadership skills early on. He was a poster kid for the al Qaeda… and for members of al Qaeda, who were indoctrinated with these propaganda videos, he means a lot to them," Mr Soufan said.

    Hamza also sounds like his father, Mr Soufan said.

    "His recent message that came out, he delivered the speech as if it's his father delivering the speech, using sentences, terminology that was used by Osama bin Laden."

    Hamza has recorded four audio messages in the last two years calling for attacks on the west.

    "He's basically saying, 'American people, we're coming and you're going to feel it. And we're going to take revenge for what you did to my father…Iraq…Afghanistan'…the whole thing was about vengeance."

    Al Queda is growing stronger in rebel areas of Syria. If they overcome the moderate rebels peace will be long way off.
