What brought about the American intervention and influence near Malala’s home?

When 9/11 happened, the Americans began to try to woo General Musharraf because they needed Pakistan's help to fight the Taliban regime in Afghanistan and catch Osama bin Laden, the leader of al-Qaeda, the group behind the terrorist attack in New York City. Some religious people in Pakistan saw bin Laden as a hero for getting back at the Americans for their aggressive foreign policy in their part of the world. Bin Laden was rumored to be hiding out in the tribal regions of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Musharraf was using the money that the Americans gave Pakistan to help fight terror for himself. Malala was very interested in politics from a young age, and she dreamed and prayed to be given courage so she could make the world perfect.
