Personal letters seized in the raid that killed bin Laden show that his son, Hamza , is set on avenging his father ’ s death, Ali Soufan , a former FBI agent , told CBS News in an interview that will air Sunday .
“ He tells him that … he remembers ‘ every look …every smile you gave me , every word you told me , ” Soufan said about bin Laden ’ s son. Soufan also told CBS News that Hamza wrote that he considers himself “ to be forged in steel . ”
Soufan said that Hamza ’ s path to become the leader of the terrorist organisation was created years ago when he was used as a propaganda tool in bin Laden ’ s videos .
He was seen sometimes holding a gun.
The agent added that he has even started to sound like his father .
“ His recent message that came out , he delivered the speech as if it ’ s his father , using sentences, terminology that was used by Osama bin Laden , ” Soufan said .
Hamza is believed to be about 28 years old and has been named as a “ specially designated global terrorist” by the U . S . , as he has recorded four audio messages in the last two years , aimed at the U . S .
“ He ’ s basically saying , ‘ American people , we ’ re coming and you ’ re going to feel it , ” Soufan said .
“ And we ’ re going to take revenge for what you did to my father . Iraq , Afghanistan’ . The whole thing was about vengeance . ”
