A videotape of Osama bin Laden aired on October 7, 2001, the same day the U.S. launched its bombing campaign against Afghanistan. “On the tape, he said, ‘What America is tasting now is something insignificant compared to what we have tasted for scores of years. The Islamic world has been tasting this humiliation and this degradation for 80 years.’ ”
