There was a truth based drama series on 2 years ago - The Looming Towers - might be on Amazon now.
Absolutely brilliant and well worth a watch.
The fact that the CIA and the FBI were so against each other stopped intelligence finding out about it in advance.
It goes in the section - "you couldn't make it up"!

Beg, borrow, blag or even buy a copy of the actual book. The TV series was great but the book puts it into the shade. And its pure non-fiction. It deals not only with all the FBI/CIA malarkey but also about how Al Qaeda came into existence and Bin Ladens background.

One of those books that changes how you see the world because when you realise the sheer scale of the enormity that one tiny group of people can have on world history...its beyond incredible.

In terms of bang to the buck, nothing even comes close to the 'value for money' (and bad taste term I concede but I believe its important people do grasp at least the basics of the concept to understand the wider picture), to what was, by any stretch of the imagination, a shoe-string terrorist operation.

In terms of its audacity, then once again, mind blowing.

In 1967, when Polish mercenary Rafal Ganowicz was asked what it felt like to take human life, replied: "I wouldn't know, I've only ever killed communists."
