Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Osama Bin Laden has been terrorizing the United States for as many as 10 years. These actions have cost him millions of dollars, as well as the numerous lives sacrificed for the good of his cause. The reason he has devoted his time and effort runs deeper than hatred alone. Bin Laden is out to pay us back for our actions. Nearly three-fourths of all attacks Bin Laden conducted have been directed toward the United States. Singling us out is a key clue of his hatred.
