Does Osama bin Laden have anything to do with the Afghan War?
"Supposedly" The war followed the September 11 attacks, and its public aims were to dismantle al-Qaeda and denying it a safe basis of operation in Afghanistan by removing the Taliban from power.
Osama bin Laden is the founder of the terrorist organization AlQa'eda and was the most wanted terrorist by US governmentauthorities. Bin Laden was the supposed mastermind of t…he 9/11terrorist attacks in the US and was in hiding for nearly a decade.In 9/11 over 3,000 people died. He was killed on May 1, 2011 by theJoint Special Operations Command (JSOC) and four men, includingOsama, died in the attack. No American was wounded or killed.President Obama ordered the attack after receiving intelligence ofbin Laden's location in a compound in Pakistan. For more information on the man and the terrorist organization, seethe Related Link.
The Rewards For Justice Program, United States Department of State, is offering a reward of up to $25 million for information leading directly to the apprehension or convictio…n of Usama Bin Laden. An additional $2 million is being offered through a program developed and funded by the Airline Pilots Association and the Air Transport Association.
It was announced on Sunday, May 1, 2011 that Osama Bin Laden was killed by US troops on the ground in a firefight. He was killed by the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC)… and four men, including Osama, died in the attack. No American was wounded or killed. Osama was shot at least once in the head. The US has custody of his body. President Obama ordered the attack after receiving intelligence of bin Laden's location in a compound in Pakistan. The US first received this intelligence in August 2010. Bin Laden was the mastermind of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and has been in hiding for nearly a decade. This answer will continue to be updated as more information is reported.
No we killed him.
No, but he practically started it all with the attack of 9/11/01. He was involved, but not actually in it or fighting. He was most likely hiding the whole time, and still is n…ow. 9/11 actually had almost no significance to the start of the Iraq war though the US claims 9/11 a reason to start the war. The Iraq war was started because Iraq would not let the UN inspect the country for weapons of mass destruction, we wanted to oust Hussein since he tortured his people, and we wanted oil. 9/11 had almost nothing to do with Iraq since osama bin laden and the hijackers were Islam extremists and from Saudi Arabia, eqypt and Lebanon. I know... It's weird.
Viewing the real man behind all of the hype and rhetoric surrounding him, Osama bin Laden's driving motivation was to become a world leader and a respected person, much like A…dolf Hitler. Also like Hitler, he used blame to support his ideals; he didn't care who or what was destroyed in the effort; and like Hitler his strategies can only be effective in the short term and are very costly for those involved. We are fortunate the the Muslims of the world were not as easily convinced as the Germans of the twentieth century.
Osama bin Laden declared holy war (Jihad) upon the US for what hedescribed as "defamation", "desecration" and "destruction" upon hismiddle-eastern neighbors. Osama himself wa…s originally a businessman hailing from SaudiArabia, and when the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan to secureoilfields, it was the western powers actually SUPPLYING theinsurgency (mujahideen), because they were so desperate to stampout Communism. If you are American you would probably at this point be shouting alot of patriotic drivel at me, (or rather typing it in capitalletters), but if you understand Islam, you would know that invadinga holy country, in a radical Muslim's eyes, is about as close youcan get to slapping the prophet Muhammad (blessed be his name),across the face. So no, it wasn't because he was a "crazed Islamic radical who wasvery wealthy", it was because he was a paranoid, overly-zealousextremist who had a view that Islam is the only religion thatshould be in the world. Everyone who was not Islamic was an infideland therefore must be converted or suffer the wrath of Allah.
Bin Laden declared a holy war because he believed the United Stateswas unjust and tyrannical.
No. Not only did he fail to fulfill any of the prophecies of the Mahdi, he is now dead.
Osama bin Laden was born in Saudi Arabia. He lived in Afghanistan where he became the leader of the terrorist group Al Qaeda. He was killed in Pakistan.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden
He's not famous. maybe famous for being one of the world's biggest scum... He was involved in 9/11/2001 the World Trade Center attack.
HECK NO!! Not after what he did to America, especially 9/11.
Osama Bin Laden was a stupid person throughout the world. I remember when my friend's dad was wounded that time in 9/11/01. But at the age of 10, I still remember the disaster… happening on TV. Osama Bin Laden had a base found in Pakistan. there i gave u a biography
He saw the United States involvement in Afghanistan as an invasion and declared war on the Americans. The history of the United States and bin Laden is a long one. The United …States supported him with training and weapons when he was fighting the Russians, but when the Russians left he felt that the United States should have too.
