from this link www.cnn.com... if you think 9/11 was bad things are to get much worse the
An Egyptian who was once a Special Forces officer has been chosen "caretaker" leader of al Qaeda in the wake of Osama bin Laden's death, according to a source with detailed knowledge of the group's inner workings.
Al Qaeda's interim leader is Saif al-Adel, who has long played a prominent role in the group, according to Noman Benotman. Benotman has known the al Qaeda leadership for more than two decades. He was once a leader of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), a militant organization that used to be aligned with al Qaeda, but in recent years renounced al Qaeda's ideology.

Bin Laden raid was humiliating to Pakistanis, Gates, Mullen say

"If I were in Pakistani shoes, I would say I've already paid a price," Gates says
He and Mullen say there is no sign Pakistan's senior leaders knew of bin Laden's compound
Both express concern that so many details of the raid have been made public
Washington (CNN) -- The ability of the United States to enter Pakistan, kill Osama bin Laden and leave without detection was a humiliation to Pakistanis, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said Wednesday.
But Gates and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Mike Mullen, insisted there is no evidence Pakistani's senior leadership knew of the bin Laden compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
"If I were in Pakistani shoes, I would say I've already paid a price. I've been humiliated. I've been shown that the Americans can come in here and do this with impunity," Gates told reporters at the Pentagon, responding to a question about what should be done if someone in Pakistan's government did know. "I think we have to recognize that they see a cost in that and a price that has been paid."
seems to me the SF leader is at work here what do you think???
ISLAMABAD (Reuters) – Pakistan's military was ridiculed and accused of complicity in the media on Tuesday after a small group of militants laid siege to a naval air base, holding out for 16 hours against about 100 commandos and rangers.
As few as six militants infiltrated the PNS Mehran naval base in Karachi, the headquarters of Pakistan's naval air wing, on Sunday night, killing 10 security forces and wounding 20.

Bin Laden considered seeking deal with Pakistan, U.S. official says
just because attacks are being carried out does not mean that there still could not be an agreement between the two.
Washington (CNN) -- Osama bin Laden considered seeking a deal with Pakistan under which al Qaeda leaders in the country would be protected and, in return, al Qaeda would refrain from attacking Pakistan, a U.S. official told CNN Friday.
what about the other country's doing the same thing??
LONDON – Prime Minister David Cameron said Britain and France will present a revised resolution to the United Nations on Wednesday condemning Syria for its deadly crackdown on peaceful protesters.
U.N. diplomats in New York said the new text is aimed at winning more support for the resolution in the U.N. Security Council and avoiding a Russian veto.
so why do we still have TSA DHS oh ya your the threat.
There is nothing in the bin Laden files so far to indicate an imminent attack, three officials said. The U.S. has increased its vigilance regarding some of the targets bin Laden suggests to his operatives, from smaller U.S. cities to mass transport systems, to U.S. embassies abroad and even oil tankers in the Persian Gulf.
