    FILE - This undated image from video seized from the walled compound of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan and released by the U.S. Department of Defense shows a man identified by the U.S. government as Osama Bin Laden in front of a television. A new book due out Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2012 says President Barack Obama hoped to put Bin Laden on trial if he had surrendered during a U.S. raid. Author Mark Bowden quotes the president as saying he thought he could make a strong political argument for giving bin Laden the full rights of a criminal defendant, to show U.S. justice applies even to him. In "The Finish," Bowden writes, however, that Obama said he expected the terror leader to go down fighting. (AP Photo/Department of Defense, File)

    FILE - In this file handout image taken from a 2003 U.S. Department of Defense surveillance video and provided Tuesday, July 15, 2008 by Omar Khadr's defense lawyers, Khadr is shown in an interrogation room at the Guatanamo U.S. Naval Base prison while being questioned by members of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service. A decade after Khadr was pulled near death from the rubble of a bombed-out compound in Afghanistan, the Canadian citizen set foot on Canadian soil early Saturday, Sept. 29, 2012, after an American military flight from the notorious prison in Guantanamo Bay. Khadr pleaded guilty in 2010 to killing a U.S. soldier in Afghanistan and was eligible to return to Canada from Guantanamo Bay last October under terms of a plea deal. Canada's conservative government took almost a year to approve the transfer. (AP Photo/U.S. Department of Defense via The Canadian Press, File)

Al-Qaida's image was a top concern on Osama bin Laden's mind in the last months of his life. In letters captured in the U.S. raid that killed him, the terror leader complains that al-Qaida branches kill too many Muslim civilians, turning the public against them.
