As the leader of Al-Qaeda, Bin Laden planned many terrorist attacks on several different nations for the soul purpose of killing innocent people. For example, Bin Laden’s most infamous plot was the attack on September 11th, 2001. As a result, about three thousand innocent Americans lost their lives (Bergen 1). In addition to 9/11, Bin Laden also planned terrorist attacks that killed hundreds of people in Kenya, Indonesia, Spain, Great Britain, and on the U.S.S. Cole, a United States destroyer (Time Magazine 1).
It is very clear why most people didn’t agree with what Bin Laden was doing. He was at fault for killing millions of innocent lives for no reason at all. He was also behind the attack on America which involved the hijacking of planes and crashing them into the twin towers.

Born to “Muslim parents on the Arabian Peninsula in the Malaaz District of Riyadh” in 1957, Osama bin Laden was raised in a wealthy Saudi family, 1 of 52 children (Aboul-Enein 1). The year of 1979 was a turning point in bin Laden’s life when the Soviet Union invaded the Muslim world and prompted young men to go and fight in Afghanistan (Young 26). Since then he committed himself to the cause of all-Islamic solidarity and eventually orchestrated devastating bombings and attacks through the most widely known terrorist network he established, Al Qaeda. It is essential to understand the background and origin of bin Laden, and how his beliefs influenced his decisions to commit the acts he did against several societies that conflicted with his culture. People that have the most influence on individuals are those who share a similar background, same oppression or adversity, and same life including values and beliefs.
On September 11, 2001, a terrorist attack by Al-Qaeda, a group of Islamic extremists, occurred. Four passenger airplanes were hijacked and used as guided missiles. Two airplanes struck the Twin Towers in New York while one struck the Pentagon in Virginia. The other crashed into a field in Pennsylvania. This attack forever changed the nation.
