Big changes continue for al-Qaida—earlier this week, the killing of Fazul Abdullah Mohammed dealt another heavy blow to the terrorist network, which then finally announced a new leader, Ayman Zawahiri. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates played down the news, saying he lacks the 'charisma' Bin Laden had. So what does the future look like for Al-Zawahiri and his organization?
We speak to Leah Farrall, Former Senior Counter-Terrorism Analyst for the Australian Federal Police and now author of the blog, All Things Counter Terrorism. She gives her take on what we can expect from the new chief and how the organization will move forward.
Leah Farrall says "Zawahiri is likely to draw heavily on Bin Laden's legacy and portray himself as implementer-in-chief of his boss's objectives and vision."
