Was it just the presence of the USA in Saudi Arabia? I get the feeling that him and his ilk need a cause of some sort and America was very convenient.

According to Bin Laden in 1992 - the sole reason was the American (kaffir) presence on sacred muslim soil - particularly at the sacred sites of Medina and Mecca.

There are now much wider issues of course, for example the establishment of the global caliphate, imposition of sharia law in the remaining counties in the east who are not already under sharia, and those in the west, and wiping Israel off the map. The fact remains though that in the words of the leader and founder of Al-Qaeda in 1992 and again in 1996 the reason for the attacks on the USA was their continued presence in Saudi Arabia. It must also be borne in mind that this is a particularly irksome issue for him personally as a Saudi himself.
