Osama Bin Laden- Born & and Raised

Osama Bin Laden was born into a very wealthy family with close connections to the Saudi Government through a construction firm. The Bin Laden Group. He was the 17th of 52 children. His father Muhammad Bin Laden was married a total of 22 times but to never more than four wives at a time. Osama Bin Laden was raised as a devout Sunni Muslim. He went to the exclusive, Al Thager Model School, a secular school. His childhood, and then his later concentration on studying the Q'utb interpretation of the Qur'an is what led to his radicalization and then his future in terrorism.
