Al-Zawahri is very good at managing terrorist groups. However, he was already all but leading AQ, so I doubt much will be different in the long term. The short term could be bad, since every day it becomes a less perfect a time for a large reprisal for UBL's death, and AQ want to make one. So far no plots have succeeded, but who knows if that will remain the case.

Well that makes things awkward for us. Unless you care to give me his location. Then we'll be cool.
