The world will be able to read some of the last words of deceased al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden, Thursday.
The Army's Combating Terrorism Center is releasing a selection of the documents seized in last year's raid on his hideout in Pakistan.
The letters will be posted online at the Combating Terrorism Center website.
The correspondence is said to show a leader struggling to command the attention of his far-flung terror network, with many field commanders believing him to be out of touch and unrealistic.
He also feared his leaders were being killed too quickly for the group to survive.
Still, analysts say the documents prove the United States is safer with bin Laden dead.
