On the morning of September 2001,11, al-Qaeda carried out four attacks on the United states’ by hijacking the four commercial passenger jet airlines which crushed the twin towers of the world trade center in New York City. 

After the 9/11 attack’s in late 2001 the United States invented Afghanistan which was supported by its close allies, which had officially begun the war on terror. The main aim of this conflict or invasion was to dismiss al-Qaeda and deny it a state base of operations in Afghanistan by removing the Taliban from power. The key ally of united states’ was united kingdom which offering support for military actions from the start of preparation for the invasion.

Us president George w.bush demanded that the Taliban should hand over Osama bin Laden and expel al-Qaeda. The Taliban declined the demand of us president George w.bush.

The relationship between the united states ’and Taliban since 1994 can be categorized into four states that is friendly, disputes, escalation of difference, head-on military configuration and fighting while negotiating.

On May 2, 2011, after 1:00 am (PKT), the founder and first leader of al-Qaeda Osama bin Laden was killed in Pakistan by Us Navy SEALS of the US Naval special warfare development group (also known as DEVGRU or SEALS team six).
