Facts About Osama Bin Laden

Osama Bin Laden: The American Enemy 1 of 8

We have all seen and heard about the atrocities committed by Osama Bin Laden and the Taliban during the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Said to be the mastermind behind this devastating plot, Osama Bin Laden will forever be remembered as the monster who introduced America's shores to the threat of terrorism.

While Osama Bin Laden is most know for his construction of the 9/11 tragedy, this heinous terrorist was actually on America's watch list far before he destroyed two of New York City's biggest landmarks. In fact, Osama had been on our radar since the days of the Clinton administration for his involvement in the US Embassy Bombings of 1998, in which hundreds of innocent civilians were killed by a truck bomb. Up until his death, he was the top priority of government search organizations as America's Most Wanted man.
