Osama bin Laden Receives Letter of Invitation to go to Sudan
In 1990, Osama bin Laden received a letter from the Sudan government inviting him to go to Sudan. Sudan sent some member of their intelligence group to meet bin Laden to convince him to move to Sudan.
Al-Qaeda recieved huge benefits from this invitation to be part of an all Muslim community. Bin Laden moved his large immediate family there, including his 19 children, in 1992.
