Either way bin Laden was a curiousity. A multi-millionaire who showed bravery in the defense of Afghanistan and became the leader of a terrorist organization. Perhaps that is not surprising since some people seem to rise to the top of whatever they are involved in. But there are not that many very wealthy people. They are not called the one-percent for nothing. And they do not have many friends and acquaintances who are not themselves very wealthy. The idea that bin Laden and (say) Cheney did not know each other is just not credible. I think if i were bin Laden, i would have said to Cheney: Hey man, why don't you take the risks. It would have far more impact if you were to become a TERR0RIST MENACE and with your heart, you can't have that many good years left in you anyway.

all-kkaiida was created by the USA / see-eye-aye to fight Russia in Afghanistan. that is now conventional wisdom. apparently, it was also commandeered later by profiteers and strategists associated with the latter, and soon became a convenient straw man to justify more illegal wars into other countries. B-Laden was associated with the latter.

the stats on how much of the world's wealth the "1%" hold are overwhelming and available online. their money, which is capital got from the sweat of labour, and now invested perversely and predominantly into the financial sector, and the war economy, holds almost endless sway and promise to millions and millions and MILLIONS of people.

bin-laden did not necessarilly belong to a terriblist organisation. that was the script we were give to read. we believed it. by doing so, we enabled the vacuuming away of much of our wealth into the pockets of the global permanent war economy, including war, oil and bank contractors.

btw - yes, i believe you are quite correct in seeing Cheney's involvement. he was VERY involved. but even people such as he or Rumsfeld, on the left or on the right, are not those fully doing the devil's bidding - they are politicial functionaries, who have essentially and literally sold away their hearts to an ideology of American exceptionalism or Libertarianism - or WHATEVER - which conveniently serves the interests of those even more powerful, nicely and quitely tucked away from public view and harm.
