Osama bin Laden wanted much of his fortune used on attacksIn his handwritten will, Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden claimed he had about $29 million in personal wealth – the bulk of which he wanted to be used "on jihad, for the sake of Allah," referring to extremist attacks.The Al-Qaeda leader planned to divide his fortune among his relatives, but wanted most of it spent to conduct the work of the Islamic extremist terror network behind the Sept. 11 attacks.The Iranian dentist might have used a slightly enlarged syringe to make such an implant, bin Laden wrote in the letter.In another letter, addressed to "The Islamic Community in General," bin Laden offered an upbeat assessment of progress in his holy war since Sept. 11,2001, and of U.S. failings in Afghanistan.Bin Laden sought to portray the U.S. as hopelessly mired in an unwinnable war in Afghanistan.
