A vic­tory — but work re­mains

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - NEL­SON MARANS New York

While the death of Is­lamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghadadi may have been a sig­nif­i­cant blow to that ter­ror­ist or­ga­ni­za­tion, the group is still alive and op­er­at­ing in 19 na­tions with its ded­i­cated agenda. With new lead­er­ship it will con­tinue to be a deadly threat to not only the coun­tries of the Mid­dle East but also U.S. in­ter­ests world­wide.

It’s worth not­ing that al Qaeda has not only been main­tained, it has mor­phed into new ter­ror groups with the same agenda.

The death of al-Baghadadi is only a sin­gle vic­tory in a nev­erend­ing bat­tle.
