Do I think BL was the leader of a global network? Yeah, sure. I don't think it was anywhere near as structured as the PTB liked to make out though.
And yeah, I do think their aim was to spread hardlined Islam around the world - ridiculous a notion as that is.
Do I think BL was killed and dumped in the sea? I think he's been 'eliminated'. I'm not convinced he's dead, but he's captured at the very
least. If he wasn't, AQ would be rushing to put him on television. I don't buy the theory he died a few years ago.
As for the apparant lack of reprisals - there have been reprisals, but mainly in the Muslim heartlands. I think the back of AQ has been broken by a
combination of eliminating leaders and closing off the financial tap. What we have now is a much less co-ordinated and demoralised loose collection of
jihadi groups who no longer have the ability to strike at the West directly - providing Wester security doesn't get sloppy, of course.
