Bin Laden has only been the Figurehead of Al Quada for years now and not directly involved. While there may not be anything big planned right now we may see an upswing in smaller terror attacks and there will probably be in a hurry to mount something big against the USA, possibly something nuclear as has been threatened. We still need to be vigilant and kill Al Quada followers whenever and where ever we find them. Do not let up on then at all.

I would say don't let up, keep your foot on their neck, stay in there hard and fast and seek out the followers as they start reering their heads, It's not over.  Stay Vigilant!

I think that this will make it hard on our soldiers over there right now. I think there will be a greater loss of life because of this event. But it is part of it. We can't stop fighting now. We have to stay strong and stay diligent. Prayers for each and every member of the US Armed Forces, every branch, all over the world. Thank you for your sacrifices and service. Prayers for each member of Home Land Security, we have to keep on our toes here just as much!

Bump to the comments made already. It was nice actually to come into work today and see the awareness and alertness of all the personnel that I work with on a daily basis. An abundance of thoughts and prayers being sent to our fighting forces sent daily already, but even more so today. Thank everyone both CONUS and OCUNUS for your service and dedication.

From Wired


...the senior administration official calls it a “major, essential step in al-Qaida’s eventual disruption.” Intelligence from the raid indicates that bin Laden’s deputy, Ayman al-Zawahiri, will become the new leader, but his authority isn’t “universally accepted,” and the Egyptian Zawahiri will have difficulty maintaining the loyalty of “al-Qaida’s Gulf Arab followers.”

I suspect that the intelligence information collected in the raid will prove to be more important in the long run that the actual death of OBL.

Al Qaeda will continue to fight for their beliefs, probably without a single leader.  Anyone that considers to fill bin laden's shoes now knows that they will be dumped at sea.

I think they will fall back and lick their wounds and then regroup.  Ever vigilent!  The bright side is closure has started...

 Just like gangs or the mafia, when one terrorist leader is killed, it just opens the door to the next generation of terrorists who will jump quickly in his shoes.

While the news of bin Laden's death brings a sigh of relief to most Americans, news of his death is heroic fuel for the terrorists. This war is like no other for America. Our President can say this is not a war against Islam until he is blue in the face, but the fact will remain that based on Islamic religion, all "others" (to them) are infidels. The American approach - agree to disagree agreeably - will not and can not be acceptable to a faithful Islamic - it will cost him/her their life. They are in no hurry, they have patiently warred throughout history and have used ruthless cunning along the way. Does anybody remember the term "sleeper cells"? -- They exist!!! America must be vigilant; the people we are up against are cognisant of the smallest of details and they don't use a rule book like we do.

Perchance these nimrod freaks  will try to find another BRILLIANT Richard Reed type  to try to shoe bomb another airliner.

I did not intend my last statement to be in jest but these people do have a bad track record of failures and blowing themselves up.It could anger them enough that they will be embolden to come out and fight.This same thing occured in Nam.When the V.C. and N.V.A. came out of the woodwork to engage in pitched battles they simply got their as-es kicked,every time.

He was just the financial arm for that Al-Qaida terrorist group now the have to find somebody to finance their terrorist acts even they need money to get the supplies to carry out their terrorism. Until then we may not hear from Al-Qaida any time soon, especially on the larger scale.

The use of martyrdom by the Taliban and other international terror groups is a sign that the bin Laden method of gaining international attention and using areas in Afghanistan as refuge may continue.
