Osama Bin Laden is unquestionably the leader of the worlds most deadly terrorist cult. He has perverted the teachings of Islam to create a fringe religious ideology where only al-Qaeda speaks for God. In his cult, suicide bombing and the mass murder of Muslims prove ones devotion. Al-Qaedas 9/11 attack on the United States was just a small part of bin Ladens strategy to win a civil war for control of Islam. By fighting his terrorists solely with bullets and bombs and ignoring his war on Islam, we have bolstered bin Ladens recruiting efforts abroad, undermined civil liberties and economic security at home, and tarnished Americas reputation abroad.
