Osama bin Laden's son Hamza has been designated a terrorist by the U.S. State Department
Thursday the State Department announced that Hamza bin Laden has been added to its global terrorist black list
Hamza, believed to be in his mid 20s, is the son of assassinated al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden - the architect of the 9/11 attacks
In 2015, a senior leader of al Qaeda revealed that Hamza had joined the terrorist group's ranks
Hamza has appeared in propaganda tapes for the group, calling for lone wolf attacks against the West and Saudi Arabia One of Osama bin Laden's sons has been designated a terrorist by the United States.
On Thursday, the U.S. State Department added Hamza bin Laden, believed to be in his mid 20s, to its list of global terrorists after confirming he had followed in his father's footsteps to join al Qaeda.
Al Qaeda senior leader Ayman al-Zawahiri released a tape in August 2015, claiming that Hamza had joined the group. In the audio message, Hamza himself spoke and called for lone wolf attacks in Washington, DC, Paris and Tel Aviv. He issued another audio message this past July, calling for 'revenge against the United States'. The message specifically called on 'Saudi Arabian-based tribes to unite with al Qaeda's affiliate in Yemen to wage war against the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia' - an ally of the U.S.
Being added to the U.S.'s counter-terrorism blacklist involves economic sanctions that prevents people on the list from doing business with American citizens and holding funds in U.S.-based bank accounts.
The Al Qaeda leadership believes there is huge propaganda value in invoking the Bin Laden name because it allows them to stake their claim to be the legitimate representative of jihad in the Middle East.

The shrapnel doesn’t fall far from the bomb.
Why did obama regime do this now?
Obama’s fault. (see, we can play the game, too)
CYA, imminent attack?
Yet obama has no problem releasing another 20 from gitmo.
Our present State Department is such a hoot.
Hamza is now considered a terrorist. So what?
If he had been arrested and placed in Gitmo, guess what Obama would be doing right now.
He would be releasing him.
Obama is releasing other valuable terrorist assets right now to go back and kill more defenders of Western Civilization.
I’m so sick of this cornpone administration, it’s B.S., and it’s subterfuge.
Let the record finally reveal we have a member of the Muslim Brotherhood as President of the United States. And as easily as those terrorists change stripes, that means he’s an al Qaeda and ISIS member too.
Thank God in heaven our nation lasted the eight years he was seeking to destroy it.
Note that they say Osama was “assassinated”.
He was a legitimate target who had declared war on all of the West. How was that an assassination?
GW Bush and 0bama are getting slow in their old age.(/s)
obama will pardon him.
