As we head into a weekend commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, ponder this question: Did Osama bin Laden win?

He was killed by U.S. Special Forces a decade ago, his remains dumped into the Indian Ocean. But when you consider what his goals were when he attacked New York and Washington, he has achieved much of what he wanted.
