The Status of the FBI’s Initial 22 Most Wanted Terrorists Post 9/11

Yes, Osama Bin Laden is dead. And while he was an evil SOB, he needed some help from other POS to try to attack the United States. President Bush put these men in the spotlight by releasing the FBI’s 22 Most Wanted Terrorists in October 2001. We know that our boys overseas are doing their best (and doing it well), but it’s still a little unnerving to see the status of some on this list today. Check out how the FBI is doing below!
