“In a passage setting out bin Laden’s own justification for the destruction of the World Trade Center, the intelligence dossier [released by U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair on November 14, 2001] quoted him as saying, ‘It was in revenge for our people killed in Palestine and Iraq. So if avenging the killing of our people is terrorism, let history be a witness that we are terrorists.’ ”
