Osama Bin Laden: In the Name of Allah
He was born into wealth and privilege, and afforded every opportunity those blessings can confer. He chose instead to embrace a culture of violence and hatred.
For years, Osama Bin Laden was a shadowy figure to most of the world. But the tragic events of September 11, 2001 thrust him into the spotlight as the most wanted fugitive on earth. Through careful analysis and interviews with people who have met him, like ABC reporter John Miller, A&E's BIOGRAPHY® tells the story of Bin Laden's life, tracing his transformation from a wealthy youth to the leader of a global terror network. Milt Bearden, the former CIA field officer for Afghanistan, recalls the role that Bin Laden played in that country's fight with the Soviet Union, while the former FBI Chief of Domestic Terrorism sheds light on how Bin Laden's operations work.
Exhaustive, objective and utterly compelling, this DVD presentation is one of the most important A&E's BIOGRAPHY® episodes ever goes beyond the headlines to reveal the man whose twisted vision led to one of the darkest days in history.
