Default U.S. official: Bin Laden 'no figurehead', directed al Qaeda from Pakistan

Quote:
The compound in Pakistan where U.S. forces killed Osama bin Laden was an active command center from which he directed al Qaeda, a senior intelligence official said on Saturday as he released videos showing bin Laden watching himself on tape and rehearsing speeches.
Newsvine - U.S. official: Bin Laden 'no figurehead', directed al Qaeda from Pakistan
The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said information carted away from the compound by U.S. forces following Monday's raid represented the largest trove of intelligence ever obtained from a senior terrorism leader.
That is good news. Hopefully al Qaeda will dissipate.
