Bin Laden and the Al Qaeda Network
An important aspect of creating a Living History is the tracking of reports and data concerning the welfare of the United States. This extremely detailed account of Osama bin Laden and the Al Qaeda Network puts the operation and its activities into a Historical Perspective. The United States was always involved with events surrounding Osama’s Network, but never to the current extreme. While recovering from over 6,300 deaths caused by the September 11th attacks, American citizens suddenly had questions they wanted answered. This article spells out current goals of the Al Qaeda Network, previous attacks on Americans and the tragic events that occurred as a result of terrorist activity. With cells operating in over 38 countries and over 3,000 participants, it’s beyond time we paid attention to these coalitions and their purposes. Although he’s the number one most wanted man in the world, Osama bin Laden continues to make threats to U.S. citizens, while at the same time recruiting others to fight for his cause.
