Ahmed Shah Massoud was known as the Lion of Panjshir due to his fight against Soviet Forces in the 1980's in Afganistan.
Ahmed Shah Massoud's forces however were not as good against the Taliban and Al-Qaeda and were increasingly forced into the mountainous areas of the north, where they controlled some 10% of Afghanistan's territory and perhaps 30% of its population.
He was assassinated on September 9, 2001 by al-Qaeda suicide bombers, who posed as news reporters.
2 Days later al-Qaeda felt confident enough to continue their attacks on the United States, since their home front was secured.
“ 'We know they (al-Qaeda) will come soon,' he told The Observer in a rare interview 'But, with God's help, they will cause us few problems." - 2001
