Did you not bother to look at all the RESOURCES in the bibliography following the Wikipedia piece?
So, Shanti...what IS your version of the truth and what are your resources? Provide links, etc.
Are you privy to all the WikiLeaks info? I doubt it.
As for Osama BL...he was educated in the US, his family (construction) did major business with the Bush family and belonged to the same Carlisle Group; he was born in Saudi Arabia. He was verifiably linked to the attacks on the Twin Towers and was a Wahhabi Suni Muslim who spent his life in jihad against the U S. Al Qaeda did not enter Iraq until AFTER the US invaded/bombed/destroyed Baghdad, Ramadi, Mosul, etc.; leveled any number of mosques, and effectively dismantled the country's infrastructure.
For an extensive study of OBL and Al Qaeda, you may want to review the Frontline documentary (PBS), Hunting Bin Laden. You can see it here: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/binladen/who/alqaeda.html
I do not rely solely on Wikipedia for info...it just happens to be a ready resource for everyone to access. Next time, I will provide a list of reputable, non-fiction books I have read to validate/substantiate my assertions/comments. Nah, why bother.
