Osama Bin Laden: Early Life

Osama bin Laden was born in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia in 1957 or 1958. He was the 17th of 52 children born to Mohammed bin Laden, a Yemeni immigrant who owned the largest construction company in the Saudi kingdom. Young Osama had a privileged, cosseted upbringing. His siblings were educated in the West and went to work for his father’s company, but Osama bin Laden stayed close to home. He went to school in Jiddah, married young and, like many Saudi men, joined the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood.

Osama bin Laden is a terrorist extremist who claimed for the attacks on the World Trade Center in Sep 11th 2001 and is intent on driving Western influence from the Muslim world.

Osama Bin Laden: The Pan-Islamist Idea
For Bin Laden, Islam is more than just a region: it shaped his political beliefs and influenced every decision he made. While he was at college at the late 1970’s, he became a follower of the radical Pan-Islamist scholar Abdullah Azzam, who believed that all Muslims should rise up in jihad, or holy war, to create a single Islamic state. This idea appealed to the young bin Laden, who resented what he saw as a growing Western influence on Middle Eastern life.

In 1979, Soviet troops invaded Afghanistan; soon afterward, Azzam and bin Laden traveled to Peshawar, a Pakistani city on the border with Afghanistan, to join the resistance. They did not become fighters themselves, but they used their extensive connections to win financial and moral support for the mujahideen (the Afghan rebels). They also encouraged young men to come from all over the Middle East to be a part of the Afghan jihad. Their organization, called the Maktab al-Khidamat (MAK) served as a global recruitment network–it had offices in places as far away as Brooklyn and Tucson, Arizona–and provided the migrant soldiers, known…...

Roman Strayer University SEC 310 Professor Darrel Nerove December 1, 2013 On May 2nd 2011, the United States executed a covert mission in Pakistan that lead to the death with the most wanted terrorist, Usama Bin Laden. For almost 10 years, the United States and its agencies where looking for Usama Bin Laden all over the world for the atrocious acts against the United States in September 11, 2001. The United States was dedicated in taking down everyone responsible for the terrorist acts on that day and finally in May 2nd 2011, the US was able to find him. The President of the United States, Barack Obama, made a speech on the mission that was taken place. He spoke how after he took office he made a priority to capture or kill Bin Laden and how there was intelligence of a possible lead of Bin Laden in Pakistan. President Obama’s speech about what the United States has in the future about terrorism was not going to stop there, because terrorism was not going to stop at Bin Laden. There is always someone that is going to take his place and still networks of al-Qaeda all over there world that need to be dismantled. President Obama stated (2011), yet his death does not mark the end of our effort.  There’s no doubt that al Qaeda will continue to pursue attacks against us. We must –- and we will -- remain vigilant at home and abroad. The killing of Usama Bin Laden was a big step in combating terrorism, it has made a huge empty hole in al-Qaeda,......

Osama Bin Laden's Death: a Hit or a Miss for the Us?

...Osama Bin Laden’s Death: a Hit or a Miss for the US? A Reaction Paper on the Death of Osama Bin Laden Raquel G. De Leon Philippine Christian University May 28, 2011 Bin Laden’s Death: A Hit or a Miss for the US? The United States caught the world by surprise with its announcement that it finally killed Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan on May 1, 2011. Following a decade of manhunt and costly war against Iraq and the Taliban, the mastermind of the 11 September 2001 attacks to the US’ economic and military symbols has finally repaid his actions. He was killed in his safe house in Pakistan and was buried to the sea following Islamic burial traditions. The raid, however, was unknown to Pakistani authorities, which could compromise whatever relations the two countries still have. Nonetheless, Osama is dead, and the US can now relax with the thought that its shores are now safe from the claws and pangs of terrorism, or is it so? Bin Laden’s death caused a flurry of reactions from all over the world. Some say that justice to the bombing victims had been served. Others, however, insist that although the US Military annihilated him, he already drained American coffers with trillion in dollars considering the costly wars it waged with the Iraq and the Taliban, as well as the expensive manhunt that lasted for a decade, thus raising the question of the significance of such death. Reactions do vary, with one saying that there is not any single human being, either directly or......

Riding Alone Is Riding with Bin Laden by Bill Maher

...Bill Maher’s book, “When you ride alone you ride with Bin Laden”, is written to inform American citizens of the things they can do to help win the war on terrorism. In this book Maher criticizes our government for their failure to do so. Maher questions why we are not using methods that have been used in past wars to enlighten our citizenry. Things like posters to conserve our natural resources, providing the media with information for Americans to rally around, turning off lights that are not being used and the need for car-pooling or creating a more energy efficient form of public transportation. Some where I read that it takes eleven gallons of oil to burn a 75 watt light bulb for a year, now that is food for thought! Maher thinks the token support that Americans are engaged in is of little value; displaying flags, wearing support badges and hats, and the “shop until you drop” theme have little value. Maybe we should be doing more, but this is a totally new kind of war, not one where we are fighting another nation, but an ideology, that is supported by radical Islamists. What should our posters say “ Don’t Trust Muslims?”. Should our media televise pictures of Muslims in their Mosques preaching “kill all infidels”? I concur with Maher that we are not doing enough and that our government could do much more, but we must acknowledge the good with the bad or we are just arm chair quarterbacks that want to point fingers. Give our government credit that we haven’t......

Bin Laden Is Dead: America Still Unsafe

...Bin Laden Is Dead: America Still Unsafe Devry University English 135 June 28, 2011 Introduction So, in the end it was not a cold, dark Afghan cave that sheltered the world's most wanted man, Osama bin Laden. It was a huge million dollar home in Abbottabad, Pakistan, with far too much security and 18-foot high walls, much taller than necessary to protect the two couriers who allegedly lived there alone. A U.S. bullet into his head, among other places, is what brought the sudden end to Bin Laden's life after a 10-year hunt for the spiritual leader of the global Al-Qaeda terrorist franchise and the master plotter of the 9/11 attacks, which killed nearly 3,000 people. The death of Osama bin Laden has raised many questions; what impact does his death have on U.S. counter-terrorism activities, Al-Qaeda and Islamic extremism, and U.S./NATO efforts in Afghanistan? More importantly, is the world any safer now than it was before? U.S. efforts to combat terrorism Without doubt, the death of the Al-Qaida leader is a great achievement in the global fight against terrorism. The spontaneous celebrations that broke out across the U.S. show how eagerly Americans were waiting to see this day. “History's most expansive, expensive and exasperating manhunt has finally ended, but the most expensive war against terrorism still has a long way to go.” (China Post, 2011) While we take comfort in his removal, we must not become complacent in our efforts to win the war on terror. ......

... will provides better access to care, and supports more preventative care programs. Those who favor the ACA argue that it provides better health care outcomes for those who otherwise would have been turned away from insurance companies. Those who oppose the ACA state that their costs will increase and that the basic American rights are being infringed upon. Given that the ACA does not take full effect until 2014, it will be interesting to see how it affects the American health care standards. All in all, the ACA is a step in the right direction for establishing a form of universal health care in the United States. Obama tells how he was collecting Intel for 4 months before he finally felt like he had enough evidence to make a move on Bin Laden; a man who was believed to be behind thousands of murders in Afghanistan and a leader of the terrorist group Al Qaeda. He has evaded capture for the last ten years and was finally brought to justice. This event is significant to everybody because it symbolized a big blow to terrorism in America since he was believed to be one of the conspirators behind the bombing of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. This was a huge accomplishment for the Obama Administration...

...AMERICAN PULIC UNIVERSITY OSAMA BIN LADEN: FALL OF LEADERSHIP POST 9/11 MIND OF A TERRORIST BY TERI DANIELLE MOUNT SAN DIEGO, CA FEBRUARY 2014 OSAMA BIN LADEN: FALL OF LEADERSHIP POST 9/11 Under Osama bin Laden's leadership, al Qaeda has become the most dangerous terrorist organizaiton in the world, responsible for more than 10,000 deaths (Terrorism [2011], 1). As the leader of this organization, he was strategic, intelligent and knew how to attack his enemy both economically and culturally. He was a mastermind and was able to communicate and exert influence upon his followers, affiliates and to the entire world as we know it. He was also the mastermind behind the tragic act that took the lives of thousands in the United States terrorist attack known as 9/11. However, since the attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, bin Laden's ability to communicate and influence others has changed drastically. As al-Qaeda's leader, bin Laden meticouslly planned 9/11 and wanted it to be the attack that caused the United States to “bleed-until-bankrupt” by creating a wars between Americans and the Muslim world (Gartenstein-Ross 2013, 1). As a leader, his strongest form of communication lied in his ability to take down his enemies from behind the scenes. After the attacks on 9/11, he repeatedly made it known that he was not responsible for the attacks. However, did the...

Death of Osama Bin Laden and Its Effects on Al Qaeda

... Death of Osama bin Laden and its effects to al-Qaeda Name: Institutional Affiliation: Date: Death of Osama bin Laden and its effects to al-Qaida It has been four years down the line since the death of the al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. In history, Osama has been the potential leader in organizing terrorist activities that have left thousands dead and several injured. His charismatic leadership led to large number of recruitments of the youth men all over the world. Osama was assassination done by the US Navy seals in a night raid on a high-walled compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan (Owen, M., & Maurer, 2012). His assassination had a great impact on the running of the al-Qaida organization. Osama bin Laden had significantly achieved high recognition as the symbol of international terrorist. Consequently, Osama declared war on the US and allies affiliated to US. His mission was followed by organized and fruitful attacks by al-Qaeda militants’ in various countries. Back in the 1990s, he organized a successful attack on the USS Cole, US embassy in Kenya and Tanzania respectively. There were also attacks in Bali, Madrid, and London. Indeed, the death of Osama is a big blow to the al-Qaeda terrorist operation that has been depending on his strategic attacks. It is unfortunate to the organization since they have so far no one with such charismatic leadership to replace him (Bergen, P, 2013).. Osama’s death has significantly reduced the al-Qaeda into a confused and......

Osama Bin Laden: the Fall of a Tyrant

...and to the world at large. Focusing upon Osama bin Laden, how would you compare and contrast his ability to communicate and exert influence upon these various audiences from the years preceding 9/11 until his death? Summary Al Qaeda leaders and affiliates have conducted sophisticated public relations and media campaigns since the mid-1990s. Terrorism analysts believe that these campaigns have been designed to elicit psychological reactions and communicate complex political messages to a global audience as well as to specific subpopulations in the Islamic world, the United States, Europe, and Asia. Some officials and analysts believe that Al Qaeda’s messages contain signals that inform and instruct operatives to prepare for and carry out new attacks. Bin Laden and other leading Al Qaeda figures have referred to their public statements as important primary sources for parties seeking to understand Al Qaeda’s ideology and political demands. Global counterterrorism operations since 2001 appear to have limited Bin Laden’s ability to provide command and control leadership to Al Qaeda operatives and affiliated groups. Other Al Qaeda leaders and affiliates continue to release statements that encourage and provide guidance for terrorist operations. Iraq has become a focal point for jihadist rhetoric, underscoring Al Qaeda leaders’ interest in Iraq and support for the ongoing insurgency. Statements released by Osama Bin Laden and his deputy Ayman al Zawahiri since......

...individual. Osama Bin Laden was a faulty evil leader who has only influenced and articulated individuals to wrong doing to others. Whether Osama was a murder, a corrupted politician, or a leader to those who followed him he deserved a fair trial once captured. Osama bin Laden was the mastermind and claimed responsibility of the thousands of lives lost throughout decades from various countries around the world. America lost over two thousands lives and mentally and emotionally ruined many others due to Osama’s leadership. When Osama was captured on May 1st of 2011, he was shot to death in Pakistan. His body was later given a sea burial. By him being shot to death the rights to live and the right to a fair trial was taken from him by his predators. If Osama was not equipped with a harmful weapon of any kind he should have been saved and tried for a fair trial under the international court. If Osama was equipped with a harming device and attacked first then his predators had no other choice than retaliate against him. However killing him and shooting him in the head was a crucial way of taking away his human rights in a fair trial. America claims a democratic country, and by doing so Osama Bin Laden should have been given the opportunity for a fair trial. This implants a seed in discrimination of certain groups of people that should not be given the same rights as any other humans. This action will create animosity between many groups of individuals and leaders. Taking......

Osama Bin Laden

...Osama bin Laden was born March 10, 1957 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Osama had his primary, secondary and even university education in Jeddah. He had a degree in public administration 1981 from King Abdul-Aziz University in Jeddah. At secondary school and university he adopted the main trend of many educated Muslims at that time, Muslim Brotherhood. There was a collection of Muslim scholars in Jeddah and Mecca at that period. There was nothing extraordinary in his personality and that trend was rather very non-confrontational. He was killed May 2, 2011 by a small group of U.S. Forces, including Navy Seals that raided a high wall, and fortified compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Osama was married 6 times, and he had 24 children. He was the founder of al-Qaeda; a broad-based militant Islamist organization. Al-Qaeda began as a logistical network to support Muslims fighting against the Soviet Union during the Afghan war. When the Soviets withdrew from Afghanistan in 1989, the organization dispersed but continued to oppose what its leaders considered corrupt Islamic regimes, and foreign presence in Islamic lands. Bin Laden returned to Saudi Arabia to step up fundraising for this new and more complicated mission. This led to the Iraqi Invasion of Kuwait, which was Saddam Hussein’s idea. Then, adding insult to injury, they sought help from the “infidel” U.S. instead. Furious about being snubbed, bin Laden vowed that it was al-Qaeda, and not the Americans, who would one day prove to......

Usama Bin Laden

...Osama Bin Laden Biography Osama bin Laden and His fusion of Terrorism Introduction: Osama bin Laden, born in 1957, comes from a wealthy Saudi Arabian family that owns a multinational construction business. He used his inborn wealth to finance Afghan forces fighting the Soviet Union's occupation of Afghanistan in the 1980's. After the 1991 Gulf War, he was distressed that Saudi Arabia allowed U.S. forces to remain in the Arabian Peninsula. To advance his agenda of expelling the U.S. from the Islamic world, he worked with other anti-Western fundamentalists to organize a secretive, highly compartmentalized terrorist network, known as al-Qaida. It is through his upbringing, education, culture, and wars in Islamic countries, that Osama bin Laden has sought to purge the Islamic world of the influences that he believes have corrupted and degraded it. Osama bin Laden’s family: Osama Bin Laden was the 17th son of 51 children of Muhammad bin Laden. His father was of Yemeni descent, and his mother was from Saudi Arabia. Osama's father was the dominant figure in the family, and Osama may have obtained his strong Islamic heritage from his father. "He had a tough discipline and observed all the children with strict religious and social code. He maintained a special daily program and obliged his children to follow.1 Over and above the strict Islamic teachings that he received from his father; Osama bin Laden also received religious indoctrination...

The operation, code-named Operation Neptune Spear, was carried out in a Central Intelligence Agency-led operation. In addition to DEVGRU, participating units included the United States Army Special Operations Command's 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Airborne) and CIA operatives.[3][4] The raid on bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, was launched from Afghanistan.[5] U.S. military officials said that after the raid, U.S. forces took bin Laden's body to Afghanistan for identification, then buried him at sea within 24 hours of his death in accordance with Islamic tradition.[6] According to a Pakistani official, the United States had direct evidence that Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief, Lt. Gen. Ahmad Shuja Pasha, knew of bin Laden's presence in Abbottabad.[7] Al-Qaeda confirmed the death on May 6 with posts made on militant websites, vowing to avenge the killing.[8] Other Pakistani militant groups, including the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan, also vowed retaliation against the U.S. and against Pakistan for not preventing the operation.[9] The raid was supported by over 90% of the American public,[10][11] was welcomed by the United Nations, NATO, the European Union, and a......
