Today, there are NO military bases in Saudi Arabia. So in that respect they were successful... but not like they wanted. For the US to gracefully exit Saudi Arabia the threat that caused us to be there in the first place needed to be removed. This of course, was Saddam Hussain, who had shown time and again that he was an aggressor to neighboring countries. Once that threat was eliminated the need for the US Military in Saudi Arabia was no longer necessary, and we promptly moved out.
Another goal was to push the US into abandoning support for Israel. This of course failed.
Lastly, I believe their goal was to send a message that the entire world is vunerable to terrorist attacks. This too was accomplished.

The truth is, the average person will never know who is controlling what. Unless of course, you happen to be brought up in an elitist family and idle chit-chat involves the latest successes of the Illuminati over dinner time. ~Thanks for letting me speak.
