As we all know the mastermind of Osama Bin Laden was behind plenty of terror attacks to what we all call home, and the destruction from 9/11. In which the tragedy was unexpected, as all are, plenty of innocent lives were taken and devastation was placed in hearts. Yet, to this day, many questions still float around in the minds of Americans and the media as well. Everyone wants to know the reasoning behind such a cowardly act and why were situations extended beyond meanings.

Osama Bin Laden was born in Saudi Arabia into the Bin Laden family to his father Mohammed Bin Awad Bin Laden, who is also a billionaire. Osama was the founder of Al-Qaeda, the Islamist organization that claimed responsibility for the 9/11 attacks on the US. Also, they claimed responsibility for the numerous other mass-casualty attacks against civilian and military targets.

The motives behind the attacks have nothing to do with the order to force us to convert to Islam or that they don’t like freedom or that they are envious. Osama stated repeatedly that all the attacks would continue until specific foreign policies (American policy in the Middle East and it’s support of Israel) are stopped. Rumors were spread that all the attacks began because of our religious beliefs. False information only threw citizens into panic. The effect of the panic began wars between the two sides. Although the two sides never got along it was always about the government and the policies we follow. Obviously Osama was in disagreement with our decisions, which caused the formation of Al-Queda.
