U.S. officials are analyzing one million pages of data from the trove found in Osama bin Laden's compound during the raid that killed him, and say they have learned more in the past ten days than in the past 10 years.

Among the things they've learned is that the al Qaeda leader wanted to find a way to kill President Obama.

Meanwhile, the first revenge attack for the bin Laden raid has killed 80 outside a military training center in Pakistan, and President Obama has acknowledged that threats against his own grandmother from another al Qaeda group are being closely monitored.

In the Kenyan village where she lives, the president's 88-year-old step-grandmother, Sarah Obama, shrugged off death threats against her from an al Qaeda affiliate in East Africa called al Shabaab.

"My life has not been affected in any way," Sarah Obama told ABC News. "It has not restricted my movement."

But President Obama seemed more concerned when asked directly about his grandmother by a Miami Spanish-language television station.

"There is no doubt that when it comes to the American people," he told WLTV, "that after having killed bin Laden there may be a desire on some al Qaeda members to exact revenge and that's something that we have to be vigilant about and we're monitoring all these situations."

The leaders of al Shabaab, which operates in war-torn Somalia on Kenya's northern border, include an Alabama-born-and-raised 27-year-old named Omar Hammami who goes by the nom de guerre Abu Mansour al-Amriki, or Abu Mansour the American. The son of a white Southern Baptist mother and a Syrian Muslim father, Amriki grew up in Daphne, Alabama, near Mobile.

This week, Amriki, who is under indictment on federal terror charges in Alabama, was recorded issuing threats against the United States and President Obama.

"Today we remind Obama, and the rest of his cronies, that they have entered the wrong war," said Amriki.

Bin Laden's own writings discovered at his compound indicate he urged his followers to assassinate the President, and find ways to disrupt the 2012 American elections.

"I would say this is probably very personal on bin Laden's part, to kill a President that he believes has violated the Muslim faith," said Brad Garrett," an ABC News consultant and former FBI profiler. "He is incensed, inflamed, obsessed about killing the President."

In fact, the video of bin Laden watching television in his hideout shows that whenever President Obama came on the screen, bin Laden quickly tried to change the channel.

It was President Obama who got bin Laden first.

In Kogelo, Kenya, security has been increased around the home of President Obama's step-grandmother.

Kenyan police told ABC News they are patrolling round the clock after the threat from Al Shabaab.

If we just learned that they'd like to assassinate the US President our intelligence services are beyond repair.

If Obama was Muslim (and I'm not touching that) he'd be considered an apostate by fanatics like Bin Laden.

The use of the word 'affiliate' here immediately made me think of a news broadcast.

Osama: We now go to our affiliate in East Africa. Omar, what can you tell us about the situation?
Omar: Well Osama...

Hell to pay, which is reasonable. At the same time AQ members are up in arms over their leader.

I would say that they probably want Bush dead too if they can get to him.

To the terrorist,it's open season, they really don't care who they take out.

Osama bin Laden told supporters not to bother trying to assassinate Biden

U.S. officials have been gaining more and more insight on the mind of Osama bin Laden, thanks to documents and journals discovered after the raid that ended in the al Qaeda chief’s death. And apparently, Vice President Joe Biden wasn’t high on his list of priorities.

According to the website ProPublica, administration officials have disclosed that bin Laden never indicated a desire to off the vice president. President Obama? Check. Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Secretary of Defense? Check. Joe Biden? Not so much.

It seems though, that it may have had more to do with the lower stature of the office itself, than the person currently occupying it.

“There is a note indicating that the vice president is not an important target because that position has less weight,” reports ProPublica, citing an anonymous counterterrorism official.

Other notes reveal bin Laden was deeply involved in day-to-day discussions about developing plots. Though reportedly no hard or concrete assassination plots were discovered, “musings” were found that revealed someone who was deeply intent on unleashing destruction on the U.S.

What is known, is that President Obama was a target. Hand-written notes reveal that bin Laden urged his followers to find a way to kill the president, and disrupt the 2012 elections.

Obama was my 3rd choice when the 2008 primaries started. Biden was my first choice followed closely by Hillary. Naturally I was all for Hillary after Biden dropped out.

Biden is no idiot. I was quite impressed by how much he knew about Pakistan + the ME. He has been warning about Pakistan way before others were realizing it.
