Bin Laden's name has been linked to a number of incidents that have cost Americans their lives, including the bombing of the USS Cole in 2000 and the destruction of the American Embassy in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998. Now, he is linked to the recent catastrophic assault on the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon. Here is a comprehensive account of the rise of Bin Laden." -- From the rear panel blurb.
