Bin Laden Death Means Most 9/11 Conspirators Killed or Captured

When President Barack Obama visits the site of the Sept. 11 terror attacks tomorrow, he’ll be able to say that with the death of Osama bin Laden the U.S. has caught or killed almost everyone allegedly responsible for the carnage.

Now U.S. authorities will aim to capture the last major figure involved in the attacks who remains free, Ayman al-Zawahiri, al-Qaeda’s No. 2 leader. Information on computers and other items taken from the compound where bin Laden was hiding, combined with questioning of current detainees, may help lead them to Zawahiri and new al-Qaeda leaders.
