“When the Gulf War began on January 16, 1991, much of the country stood behind President [George H.W.] Bush. Night after night, millions of people were spellbound by the high-tech spectacle on CNN, unaware that Osama bin Laden’s jihad against America had begun. In [the assassination of Rabbi] Meir Kahane, Al Qaeda had already claimed its first casualty on American soil.”
