 The United States & Osama bin Laden

Taught by Professor Salim Yaqub | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

Osama bin Laden's emergence in the 1990s as a sponsor of anti-American terrorism begins with the Soviet withdrawal from Afghanistan and continues with his formation of the al-Qa'ida network, its escalating campaign, the Clinton administration's sporadic efforts to counter it, and the ambivalent position of the Saudi government.
