Tuesday marks the 11th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, which means that the all-too-familiar reflections and remembrances will dominate the media over the next 24 hours.

But here's one story about Osama bin Laden that you probably haven't seen.

An investigation by Middle East expert Robert Fisk, published December 6, 1993, in the U.K.'s Independent, bore this headline:

Anti-Soviet warrior puts his army on the road to peace: The Saudi businessman who recruited mujahedin now uses them for large-scale building projects in Sudan.

How times have changed.
