ABSTRACT
This article looks at Al Qaeda's downfall after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Osama bin Laden boasted that he had anticipated the magnitude of the wound that Al Qaeda inflicted on the U.S., but even he was surprised the Twin Towers collapsed. For at least five years, bin Laden had been goading the U.S. into invading Afghanistan. When the U.S. finally did, eighty percent of Al Qaeda's members in Afghanistan were killed, Al Qaeda was repudiated by the Muslim world, and the organization was scattered to the wind.
