ABSTRACT
The article discusses the potential threat of terrorist attack in the U.S. following the death of Al Qaeda's leader Osama bin Laden. It says that Ayman al-Zawahiri, the new leader of the group, has intended to cause casualties in the U.S. railway infrastructure to honor the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorists attack in the U.S. The author mentions that question remains on the availability of time and resources for the group to recruit and organize an attack inside the U.S. He relates that developments in the Middle East region where democracy movements are spreading, might have an impact on the overall growth of Al Qaeda membership.
