Osama bin laden sat in his gold fringed robe, guarded by the loyal arab mujahedin who fought along-side him in afghanistan. Bearded, taciturn figures - unarmed, but never more than a few yards from the man who recruited them, trained them, and then dispatched them to destroy the soviet army - they watched unsmiling as the sudanese villagers of Almatig lined up to thank the Saudi businessman who is about to complete the highway liking their homes to khartoum for the first time in history....more @ the link
"Personally neither I nor my brothers ever saw any evidence of American help"

Once i was 30 metres from the Russians and they were trying to capture me. I was under bombardment but i was so peaceful in my heart that i fell asleep.....I saw a 129mm motar shell land in front of me, but it did not blow up. Four more bombs were dropped from a Russian plane on our headquarters but they did not explode. We beat the Soviet Union
On June 5, 2006, the Muckraker Report contacted the FBI Headquarters, (202) 324-3000, to learn why Bin Laden’s Most Wanted poster did not indicate that Usama was also wanted in connection with 9/11. The Muckraker Report spoke with Rex Tomb, Chief of Investigative Publicity for the FBI. When asked why there is no mention of 9/11 on Bin Laden’s Most Wanted web page, Tomb said, “The reason why 9/11 is not mentioned on Usama Bin Laden’s Most Wanted page is because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting Bin Laden to 9/11.”
