Osama's hate against the US

By: Julia Moore & Gabe Clarke

9/11 Terrorist Attacks on The United States
Who was Osama Bin Laden?
Osama Bin Laden was born in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia in 1957.
He was born in a wealthy family (father was a wealthy contractor) and was a radical Muslim.
He supported international terrorism with his millions.
Osama Bin Laden was the mastermind of many terrorist attacks, but the main one being 9/11.
The U.S. sent troops to Saudi Arabia in order to protect them from an Iraqi invasion and to force Iraqis out of Kuwait.
Bin Laden disagreed with Saudi Arabia's government allowing U.S. troops to walk all over their holy land which was home to Mecca and Medina.
However the main reason for his hatred against the U.S. was of their presence in Saudi Arabia.
How the 9/11 Attack Unfolded?
Osama Bin Laden issued a fatwa (religious edict or command) for all Muslims to kill Americans.
Nineteen Al-Qa'ida members hijacked 4 airplanes departing from the east coast heading to the west because they carried large amounts of fuel.
The 19 terrorists carried box-cutters on the airplanes and killed the pilots.
After of 9/11
In total about 3,000 people died 300 of them being emergency workers
The largest terrorist attack on American soil since Japan bombed Pearl Harbor in 1941.
George W. Bush responded to the 9/11 attacks by declaring "war against terror" on September 20, 2001
The U.S. overthrew the Taliban in December 2001 after refusing to reveal the location of Bin Laden.
Bin Laden the Mastermind behind 9/11
2 of the 19 hijackers were members of Al-Qa'ida.
Bin Laden issued a fatwa shortly before the attack happened.
Bin Laden made a confession video to the 9/11 attacks and it was released in December 2001.
However the video turned out to be fake and mistranslated.
Most Common Misconception Regarding 9/11
The U.S. government carried out the attack themselves.
The U.S. government rigged the World Trade Center building 7 with explosives causing it to collapse. This is a conspiracy theory because it was never hit by an airplane.
Osama Bin Laden never existed.
Other misconceptions
The hijackers were from Afghanistan, or Iraq, or someplace we went to war with.
Actually fifteen were from Saudi Arabia, two from the United Arab Emirates, one from Egypt and one from Lebanon.
Justice for America
After a decade searching for Bin Laden the U.S. finally gets their revenge on May 2, 2011.
U.S. Navy SEAL Team Six invaded Bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan on a dangerous mission to kill Bin Laden.
SEAL Team Six killed Osama, his son, and shot one of his many wives in the leg.
While taking photos of the body they discovered an AK-47 and a pistol in his room.
World Trade Center Memorial Sight
A monument was built where the World Trade Center once stood honoring the innocent victims that lost their lives.
Two fountains were built with the names of the victims along the fountain.
The Memorial sight was open to the public on September 11, 2011.
Congress passed the Patriot Act in October 2001
Airlines improve security to prevent future attacks from happening.
Known as "The one world trade center"
4th tallest building in the world
104 floors
opened in 2014
Political Impact
George W. Bush declared war on terror which led to the Afghanistan War.
He later created Homeland Security to oversee the protection of the U.S.
The Patriot Act helped establish the National Security Agency (NSA).
The FBI got involved for finding Bin Laden.
Barack Obama was successful with his plan of killing Bin Laden.
Social Impact
America was weakened as a nation from the belief that the U.S. was protected and secured from any terrorist attacks.
Americans felt a sense of relief after a decade of seeking revenge when Bin Laden was killed.
