Osama Bin Laden was allegedly involved in a number of terrorist plots against the U.S in the 1990s. Son of a wealthy business man and with financial resources to back an increasingly hostile agenda against the West, he was able to influence and recruit several supporters’ young and willing against America. He was very vocal about his hatred towards the U.S, and was against their military presence in Saudi Arabia, a country he was a citizen of until 1994, when American pressure caused the Saudi royals to revoke his citizenship.
He repeatedly requested the Saudi leaders to resist their presence in the Saudi peninsula but was met with limited support from the political entities. As a result, he lodged several deadly campaigns, such as the bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993 and the 1998 multiple bombings of the U.S embassies in Africa, both of which were attributed to him. To the latter, Al-Qaeda claimed responsibility and by that time Al-Qaeda’s chief officer was deemed to be Bin Laden himself, thereby subjecting him to the limelight as the prime suspect and a threat to the U.S nation.
In 1998, Bin Laden also issued a fatwa or an Islamic opinion more akin to an order that called for Jihad or Islamic war to be waged against the Americans wherever they existed.
This brought him further into the radar and became a cause of serious concern for the U.S, which tried to eradicate his existence by firing missiles into his supposed hideouts in Afghanistan. Osama Bin Laden evaded those attacks and was again a serious cause of concern for Clinton, the president of the U.S at the time.
