Abu Zubaydah Sought To 'Bring America to Its Knees" in Aftermath of 9/11

Was building a network to carry out attacks before being captured and sent to Guantanamo Bay in 2002


Zain Abidin Mohammed Husain Abu Zubaydah, one of the highest-value detainees in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, was building a network to wage a war that would "bring America to its knees" before he was captured in 2002, his personal diaries show. In the document, Abu Zubaydah recounts the chaotic aftermath of the 9/11 attacks on the United States and the toppling of Afghanistan's Taliban regime, which provided shelter for men like him and Osama bin Laden.
