    Al-Zawahri Succeeds Bin Laden as Al-Qaida Leader

    CAIRO (AP) — Osama bin Laden's longtime deputy Ayman al-Zawahri, a fiery ideologue who is known for his deep hatred of the West and helped plan the 9/11 attacks, has taken control of al-Qaida after the death last month of the terror network's founder, the group said Thursday.

    predicted as much. no doubt bin laden was a horrible man, but killing him was definitely not going to dismantle the al-qaida network, someone was already ready to set up.
