Why Osama bin Laden Attacked the US

 The video "Why Osama bin Laden Attacked the USpushes an outright lie. I have made many videos on the main motive for the 9/11 attack (anger at US support of Israel) and several videos directly addressing the fact that people are lying about the motivation to suppress the main motive for the attack. see Rather Outrageous Suppression of the Main Motive for 9/11 Attacks

I also have written many times exposing the fact that people have been lying about bin Laden's motivation. I even cited  The Bin Laden I Know, Peter Bergen where Bergen makes the point that people have been lying about bin Laden's motivation: "Conventional wisdom has it that bin Laden adopted the Palestinians issue only recently. Reading this declaration [the first declaration of war, issued in 1996SHOULD PUT THAT CANARD TO REST." p164 The Bin Laden I Know, Peter Bergen 
And you can see at the following link that I traced back bin Laden's earliest expression of this grievance to at least as far back as 1984:  

"Sheikh Mohammed said that the purpose of the attack on the Twin Towers was to "wake the American people up." Sheikh Mohammed said that if the target would have been strictly military or government, the American people would not focus on the atrocities that America is committing by supporting Israel against the Palestinian people and America's self-serving foreign policy that corrupts Arab governments and leads to further exploitation of the Arab/Muslim peoples." (source: The Osama Bin Laden I Know: An Oral History of Al Qaeda's Leader By Peter L. Bergen p 418 )

Ramzi Yousef is 
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed's nephew and 
Ramzi Yousef was the mastermind of the first attack on the WTC, the attack in 1993:

I remember the same game of suppression played after the 1993 attack on the WTC, almost no one wanted to report what the motive was even though it was made clear by Ramzi Yousef: "Yousef sent a letter to the New York Times after the 1993 bombing attack on the WTC, "We declare our responsibility for the explosion on the mentioned building. This action was done in response for the American political, economical, and military support to Israel the state of terrorism and to the rest of the dictator countries in the region.""

"Yousef said he took no thrill from killing American citizens and felt guilty about the civilian deaths he had caused. But his conscience was overridden by his desire to stop the killing of Arabs by Israeli troops." "Yousef said he "would like it to be different," but only terrible violence could force this kind of abrupt political change. He said that he truly believed his actions had been rational and logical in pursuit of a change in U.S. policy toward Israel. He mentioned no other motivation during the flight and no other issue in American foreign policy that concerned him." (source: Steve Coll, Ghost Wars p273 )
