While you wait patiently for the CTC’s release of a few Bin Laden documents tomorrow, here are three articles I’ve written recently on what’s happened since Bin Laden’s death (plus a video):
- A Brookings memo explaining why many of Egypt’s Salafis have embraced party politics after railing against it for decades
- An update to my Foreign Affairs piece
- An exploration of the implications of al-Qaeda holding territory in Yemen and Somalia
- A panel discussion on al-Qaeda’s status with Stephen Tankel and Mary Habeck
Totally unrelated, if you’re interested in what the US government is doing, not doing, and should be doing in the realm of social media, there’s this.
