Osama Bin Laden (OBL), an arch-terrorist and founder of the Al-Qaeda, was assassinated on May, 2011 in a covert US operation (Kitfield, 2013). By the time of his death, Osama had been linked to several terrorist activities including the September, 11 attacks that killed nearly 3000 people (Michaels, 2012). It was hoped that his death would dismantle or cripple the Al-Qaeda, a terrorist network formed and led by OBL. Three years down the line it is still not clear whether OBL’s death crippled, dismantled or strengthened the terror network. This essay intends to discuss the discourse and assessments that have evolved three years after his death to explain its impact on Al-Qaeda.

Nichols admits to helping McVeigh choose materials to construct the bomb, and even helped McVeigh the day before the bombing with building the bomb in the back of the rental Ryder truck. Even though Nichols was charged with his connection to the Oklahoma City bombings, Nichols had denied his involvement for many years. A search of Nichols home after his arrest found that he had blasting caps, guns, and a receipt that showed the purchase of ammonium nitrate that exceeded what an individual would need for personal use for lawn care. In addition, Michael Fortier was charged and sentenced to ten years after law enforcement found out that Fortier knew about McVeigh’s plans for the Oklahoma City bombing, and his failure to report it. Fortier also assisted McVeigh by receiving stolen weapons from Terry Nichols, selling the weapons, and upon McVeigh’s request, giving the money he made off of the stolen weapons to Nichols.

America had lots of changes to make the attacks on September 11, 2001. Little did we know that this would affect the nation for years to come. Shortly after the attacks on 9/11 the Government acted very quickly. As stated in an article by Jaeshin Kim, “The Bush Administration launched the bombing of Afghanistan, and Congress passed the USA PATRIOT Act allowing law enforcement powers to detain foreign nationals or immigrants suspected of terrorism” (Kim 1). In situations as these, the President has no option but to quickly react, so he did.
The 2 structure erupted in flames, and badly damaged, and then collapsed. U.S forces are trying to capture bin Laden ( Hampton). Less than a month after 9/11, U.S. troops invaded Afghanistan in an attempt to dismantle al-Qaeda, the terrorist group that claimed responsibility for the attacks, and remove the Taliban government. Two years later, in March 2003, the United States invaded Iraq and deposed President Saddam Hussein. It was a wake-up call, not only for us as Americans but for those in many parts of the world (What happened).
