Op-ed in The Australian outlining my take on Ayman al-Zawahiri’s appointment as new amir of al-Qaeda

You can find the piece here.

I’ve also written another two articles, which I hope are coming out soon. And will post the details on once they are released, although I don’t know if one has been accepted yet. In any event, I’ll post it here if I don’t get a taker on it.

Another blog post will also follow soon on the interim amir speculation. And I still need to update my earlier posts with the interesting data readers have sent in about the photos. Hoping to get to that later today but since I haven’t slept yet I’ll see how I go on that front. In any case I’ll get to it as soon as I can.

    Great piece, Leah. Important point about bin Laden electing not to comment as frequently as he could have, given his outside access.

    What are your thoughts Leah about AQIM, ISI and AQAP’s silence in regard to pledging allegiance to Zawahiri? So far it appears, only Shabab welcomed Zawahiri as the new AQ leader.
