Although US officials claims that their “War Against Terrorism” formerly Al-Qaida and today what is called Islamic State by its other name like ISIS , ISIL , IS or Daesh have a good progress, but sill 5 years after bin Laden, his death casts long shadow across the world.
The US Navy SEALs raid on bin Laden’s hideout in Pakistan took place on 2 May 2011 and bin Laden death announced by US President Barack Obama’s televised address.
Navy Seals flying to bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan and delivering a fatal headshot marks as a milestone. The 53-year-old had been Washington’s top public enemy for the decade after the 9/11 attacks and the global face of hardline militancy in the name of Islam.
Bin Laden’s dream of building his version of an Islamic utopia by hitting Western targets in Islamic lands and ousting Arab autocrats has inspired the ISIS group, al-Nusra Front and other rebels in Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Libya and down through sub-Saharan Africa.
