Capturing Osama bin Laden was certainly welcomed news. Three sitting U.S. presidents tried to kill him; Clinton, Bush and for two years Barack Obama. We obtained a wealth of information about members, leaders and plans in the works. But almost immediately Al Qaeda threated to respond, and only time will tell if a coordinated response under new leadership is a possibility. Individual acts of terror, as opposed to large scale, coordinated attacks, may be more difficult to identify and prepare a response to. Finding bin Laden was certainly a major objective, but the war on terror may never be over.
