The article reports on the impact of terrorist and founder of al-Qaeda movement Osama Bin Laden's assassination in the U.S. wars. According to the U.S. Socialist Worker article on May 3, 2011, his death must not be used to justify more political killings in the name of the war on terror. It mentions U.S. President Barack Obama's televised speech in May 1 stating that Bin Laden's murder will not make the world safe, but will only create support for more violence committed by the U.S. government.
