Recent intelligence seems to indicate that Al Qaeda has done a pretty effective job of maintaining their centralized leadership by replacing those who have been killed or captured. This, like many stories, makes me wonder about our broader strategy in the war on terror; the strategy that goes beyond military actions. I’m not sure I have a good handle on exactly what that strategy is and I have a feeling that’s not because I’ve been missing something.
