WASHINGTON — The sentimental guy that he was, Osama bin Laden wanted to commemorate the upcoming 10th anniversary of 9/11 with a plot to derail a U.S. train, the Associated Press reported.

AP reported that materials seized during the raid at the Pakistan compound showed bin Laden was scheming since last year.

“One idea outlined in handwritten notes was to tamper with an unspecified U.S. rail track so that a train would fall off the track at a valley or a bridge,” AP reported.

“Counterterrorism officials said they believe the plot was only in the initial planning stages, and there is no recent intelligence about any active plan for such an attack,” AP wrote.
