Osama bin encumbered was once the main sought after guy in American history—an enemy who introduced the us what President George W. Bush known as “a day of fire,” and ushered in a brand new period of terrorism. It took a decade of blood and sacrifice, of choice and frustration, yet ultimately, in a evening raid on the finish of a mud highway in Pakistan, the quest for Bin weighted down ended with a gunshot. It used to be a dramatic climax to an extended and painful chapter.
But now what? The terrorist chance that has outlined American coverage because the assaults of 9-11 didn't die with Bin weighted down in his walled compound close to Islamabad. Radicals nonetheless want us damage, and we needs to struggle on.
In this provocative number of essays edited and brought through Pulitzer Prize winner Jon Meacham, a bunch of penetrating analysts and leaders look forward to the area after Bin Laden—to the way forward for Al Qaeda, of Afghanistan, of Pakistan. We discover the political, army, and cultural implications of the post–Bin weighted down conflict on terror. From Richard N. Haass of the Council on international family members to former Secretary of kingdom James A. Baker III, from historian and journalist Evan Thomas to former U.S. military officer Andrew Exum, past Bin weighted down offers readers clever, deeply expert, and pressing glimpses of what comes next.
