Al Qaida is not out just yet
Made popular 753 days ago in
Ayman Muhammad Rabaie al-Zawahiri (Arabic: أيمن محمد ربيع الظواهري, ʾAyman Muḥammad Rabīʿ aẓ-Ẓawāhirī; born June 19, 1951) is a leader of al-Qaeda, and was the second and last "emir" of Egyptian Islamic Jihad, having succeeded Abbud al-Zummar in the latter role when Egyptian authorities sentenced al-Zummar to life imprisonment. While Al-Zawahiri is a reportedly a qualified surgeon, he has shown a deep and radical understanding of Islamic theology and Islamic history. He speaks Arabic, English and French. Al-Zawahiri is under worldwide sanctions by the United Nations Security Council 1267 Committee as a member or affiliate of al-Qaeda.
In 1998, al-Zawahiri formally merged the Egyptian Islamic Jihad into al-Qaeda. According to reports by a former al-Qaeda member, he has worked in the al-Qaeda organization since its inception and was a senior member of the group's shura council. He was often described as a "lieutenant" to Osama bin Laden, though bin Laden's chosen biographer has referred to him as the "real brains" of al-Qaeda.[

At least 10 of Al Qaida's under bosses have been killed over the past two years; so the fingers have been cut and the head has been removed. Al Qaida will strick back but like a confused mess of body parts with no direction. That is not to say they won't be dangerous, they just won't be as well organized.
