Know the Facts? Al-Qaeda Marks 20 Years of Terror

Twenty years ago this week, Osama bin Laden and his cohorts founded the infamous militant group al-Qaeda. For two decades the terrorist network has sought to end foreign influence in Muslim countries, kill US citizens and their allies everywhere, and create a perfect Islamic form of government in the Muslim world.

The past 20 years have seen many gruesome al-Qaeda successes, but the group also faces feasible fragmentation and failure in the future. Do you know the facts on America's main enemy in the war on terrorism?

Missed one! Liberty, you're not precisely correct. al-Qaeda wants to create a global caliphate, which is much more all-encompassing and scary than "...a perfect Islamic form of government in the Muslim world." This is old news, we should all be aware of it by now. In my search to confirm my facts with as objective a source as possible, I found a quite detailed article from Der Spiegel from three years ago. (in English) You can find it at:,1518,369448,00.html Just because it may sound crazy and implausible to us does not mean that others may not take it very seriously.
