Meeting Ayman Zawahiri’s family in Egypt, I gained some special insights into the now-assassinated Al Qaeda leader.2 August 2022
Ayman Zawahiri, successor to the slain Osama Bin Laden, warned the world in an Internet message soon after he became leader, that Al Qaeda would remain a ‘source of horror and a nightmare chasing America, Israel and their allies’. That, of course, included Britain. It was a message that intelligence communities took very seriously. The evidence from his own life story shows that as a rule he delivered what he promised.
