Bin Laden Dead, Threat of Al-Qaeda Still Alive

ATLANTA (WAOK)- President Obama delivered the words heard around the world “Osama Bin Laden is Dead”.

Despite the obvious victory, the president said he can not stress enough that Osama Bin Laden is dead and not terrorism.

There is speculation that another person will rise as the new leader of Al-Qaeda. Ayman al- Zawahri of Egypt is expected to succeed Osama Bin Laden. Al-Zawahri was Bin Laden’s right hand man. It has been reported that he executed many of the strategies used against the US after they invaded Afghanistan.

Al-Qaeda has released a statement saying they will avenge Osama Bin Laden’s death. They added that the first country to pay will be Pakistan, followed by the United States.
