Osama bin Laden is Dead

Now that Osama bin Laden is dead, we really have to think about what the means to us Americas. First, the world is no more safe than it was 48 hours ago. Bin Laden represented a ‘symbol’ for al Qaeda not an operational leader. Second, you must understand that killing bin Laden can have one of two effects (1) Cutting off the head can kill the snake or (2) Two more can grow in it’s place.

For years there has been numerous stories about several al Qaeda ‘leaders’ wanting to get away from the Osama bin Laden belief of living off the history of 9/11 and move towards the fear of new attacks. We could see al Qaeda implode as an organization or explode with new attacks, new recruits, and new energy.
