In 13th Dec 2001, the US Government releases a tape in which Islamic terrorist Osama bin Laden takes responsibility for 9/11 terror attack.
President Bush announced that he wanted Laden- Dead or Alive. The USA issued $25 Million bounty for information leading to killing or capture of Osama.
Bush also launched War in Afghanistan and sent troops to Iraq. The Central Intelligence Agency found huge weapons and added Saddam Hussein- Iraq’s leader was aiding al-Qaeda group.
The US force was continuously in search of Osama-bin Laden. Finally on 2nd May, 2011 they killed Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan. The intelligence team of US traced al-Qaeuda leader and killed him in a secret mission. President Obama announced the Death of Osama-bin Laden and finally did justice for 9/11 US terror attack.
