After Bin Laden: The Future of Al-Qaeda

2012 AIPAC Policy Conference
Washington, DC

Bin Laden's death in May of last year, though a severe blow to al-Qaeda, did not spell the end of the terrorist organization. Its members continue to operate in places like Yemen and Somalia and scheme to attack targets belonging to the United States and the West. Who are al-Qaeda's leaders today, and how strong is the organization? Our panel evaluates this persistent threat.
