TERRORISM SALON: Stephanie Kaplan on Bin Laden’s Whereabouts


(Stephanie Kaplan is a Visiting Scholar at the Woodrow Wilson International Center).
In regards to Greg’s query — Briefly, I don’t assume that Bin Ladin and al-Zawahiri are hiding in urban areas (but, of course, I have no intelligence upon which to base this assumption). So your question underscores my point precisely: the military is not the lead counterterrorism agency in urban areas, where so many segments of the jihadist movement thrive. And that is why the pre-9/11 mindset is a canard.
— Stephanie Kaplan
This week long terrorism salon will continue to be hosted by The Washington Note and UN Dispatch.
