Osama bin Laden

the Saudi-born cofounder and longtime leader of al-Qaeda, killed in Pakistan in 2011 during a raid by U.S. Navy Sea, Air, and Land (SEAL) Teams. Active in resisting the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan and deeply opposed to cooperation between Saudi Arabia and the United States, bin Laden was the driving force behind the USS Cole bombing and the September 11, 2001, attacks, among others.
