Al Qaeda and Affiliates: Historical Perspective, Global Presence, and Implications for U.S. Policy
John Rollins (au)
Al Qaeda (AQ) has evolved into a significantly different terrorist organization than the one that perpetrated the September 11, 2001, attacks. Some analysts describe pre-9/11 Al Qaeda as akin to a corporation, with Osama Bin Laden acting as a CEO issuing orders and soliciting ideas from subordinates. Due to pressures from the security community, it has transformed into a diffuse global network and philosophical movement composed of dispersed nodes with varying degrees of independence.
