Osama bin Laden
A terrorist who influenced how American’s perceived the safety of their country after the attacks of September 11, 2001 in New York City, his influence on American’s spread to war, the need for heightened security measures for travel, and cost the country trillions of dollars. When he was captured and killed by United States forces on May 2, 2011 in a city called Abbottabad, millions of people shed tears and stood proud of their country. Osama can retain the rights to being called Americas number one enemy, even as his body rests inside a coffin.
