After bin Laden

This is an undated photo of Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan. The U.S. cruise missile strike on an al-Qaida training camp in Afghanistan in 1998 was meant to kill Osama bin Laden. But he apparently left shortly before the missiles struck, and U.S. documents declassified on Wednesday, Aug. 20, 2008 suggest the attack cemented an alliance with his Taliban protectors.
