The Afghan leadership made the mistake of harboring a person

that the US leadership claimed was responsible for the destruction

of the twin towers in New York. When they refused to hand him over

Afghanistan was attacked. Leading to further destabilization of the

region. death and destruction of innocents and a flood of addictive

drugs into its main competitor Europe.

After 9/11, the US decided to invade Afghanistan to overthrow

the Taliban regime which was aiding and supporting Osama Bin Laden

and Al-Qaeda terrorists. They also wanted to capture Bin Laden.
