    Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was not the “puppet master” of jihadi groups around the world and was burdened by what he saw as their “incompetence,” according to an analysis of documents seized from his hideout in Pakistan.

    The Combating Terrorism Center, a privately funded research center at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, posted on its website on Thursday some declassified documents taken in the raid on bin Laden’s house in Abbottabad in which he was killed by U.S. forces a year ago. (http:www.ctc.usma.edu)

    “On the basis of the 17 declassified documents, Bin Ladin was not, as many thought, the puppet master pulling the strings that set in motion jihadi groups around the world,” a report on the documents by the Combating Terrorism Center said. “Bin Ladin was burdened by what he saw as their incompetence.”

    The center spells bin Laden’s name as Bin Ladin.
