The New York Daily News is reporting the seized Bin Laden documents, set to be published later today, show the al-Qaeda founder was planning to overthrow Afghan president Hamid Karzai and control Afghanistan once the US left the country.
It reports Bin Laden had discussed his plans with the Taliban leadership council, known as the Quetta Shura, and the Haqqani network, which controls the North Waziristan tribal area in Pakistan, with a view of working together to complete the plan.
