Osama bin Laden's potential targets on the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11 included an attack on President Barack Obama.

ABC News reports that the terrorist leader's prime target was Air Force One or Marine One while the president was on board.

The information was gleaned from a treasure trove of information seized from bin Laden's Pakistan compound after he was killed by Navy SEALs in May.

Bin Laden allegedly wanted to shoot the president's aircraft right out of the sky.

The former al Qaeda leader also hoped to kill General David Petraeus, according to ABC News.
