From the list of threats that governments see as facing their countries despite the death of Osama bin Laden. None of these "experts", whether they work for governments, intelligence services, the armed forces, the media or in academia, will ever have an interest in declaring al-Qa’ida or groups like it as defunct or irrelevant.
