Seven years after September 11 attacks, US policies towards al-Qaeda have not protected American citizens, a Newsweek article says.
In 2001, Osama bin Laden and his deputy Ayman Zawahiri were living in Afghanistan. Their hosts, the Taliban, possessed only primitive weapons, according to the article.
