The death of the Muslims has made the group toothless to the US and NATO forces operating in Iraq and Afghanistan. Al-Qaeda ideology has received a great shock from the majority Muslims supporting the US and Western influences (Griffin, D. R, 2009). The act of act killing humans by al-Qaida goes against the teachings of the norms of the Muslims.
The successful assassinations of Osama have made the organization on co-operative within the system. The leadership wrangles within the organization have made large number of militants leaving the group. The top leaders have failed tremendously to offer effective operation in attacking the US affiliates such as the West. The al-Qaeda branch such as the Taliban, the Salafist group and combat have declined in implementing their extremist mission (Hasian Jr, 2013). The previous attacks by al-Qaeda have made the whole world to declare war against any extremist organizations, and this has contributed to the failure of the organization in fulfilling its plans.
In conclusion, al-Qaida organization has received a heavy blow after the death of its top charismatic leader but still the group is carrying various attacks on its enemies. These attacks are minor compared to the ones planned by the Osama. These attacks are prevalent nowadays in African nations such as “Boko Haram” of Nigeria and “Al-Shabaab” of Somalia organization playing the key role in the extremism. On the other hand Kenya; have faced the wrath from the al-Shabaab organization, which has led to large number of deaths in Kenya (Blanchard, C. M, 2007). The mission of the al-Shabaab is to revenge on Kenyan security operation in Somalia ensuring the government is stable from the al-Shabaab threats.
