Summary Who is Osama bin Laden - the only terrorist leader ever to have declared a holy war against America? What drives him and those he leads to hate a West that helped educate, enrich, and arm them? In meticulous detail, terrorism expert Yossef Bodansky uncovers the events in bin Laden's life that turned the once-promising engineering student into a cold-blooded leader of radical Islam. Including new information about bin Laden's pursuit of chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons, covert deals between the U.S. and Islamic terrorists, and American foreign policy blunders that have cost countless lives, this book is a sobering wake-up call.
