WASHINGTON, D.C., June 9, 2011—Despite the death of Osama Bin Laden on May 1, the global threat from Al Qaeda and Islamist jihadism in general is far from over.
In its June issue, Homeland Security Today provides a report on the world after Bin Laden as well as an insider’s story of the hunt for the world’s top terrorist.
In the cover feature, “When Y’all Gonna Catch Bin Laden?,” Godfrey Garner, a veteran Special Forces operator deployed to hunt down Bin Laden, provides his recount of the obstacles, the frustrations and the effort to catch the terrorist mastermind.
According to Garner, “Our quest to bring Bin Laden and those like him to justice has been and remains a noble one. We, along with our allies have gone further than any other country at any other time in history to assure that we pursue a just conflict in a just manner and though our efforts in this at times hampered our mission, we have, through perseverance and patience in this instance, accomplished the objective.”
In the article, “Al Qaeda After Bin Laden,” Homeland Security Today Senior Reporter Anthony Kimery provides a report on the future leadership of Al Qaeda and the likelihood of a retaliatory attack.
According to Kimery, “No matter who assumes Bin Laden’s mantle, Al Qaeda—while admittedly decentralized—is still a terrorist organization with a clearly delineated and seemingly redundant operational command and control structure in place expressly for the purpose of being activated.”
