May 25th Conference: Al Qaeda After the Death of Bin Laden – The Future of Jihadist Terrorism

A One-Day Conference:  May 25th, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Key Bridge Marriott, Arlington, Virginia

The death of Osama bin Laden will significantly affect both sides in the war on terror.  The most important questions now are how will al Qaeda and its associated movements respond to the death of their leader, and is the United States safer or in more danger today?  The Westminster Institute is bringing together world-renowned authorities and national security practitioners for a one-day special event in Washington, D.C.  Together they will provide answers to these questions and also address the broader questions of what impact bin Laden’s death will have on non-violent jihadists such as the Muslim Brotherhood, and what strategies can the U.S. employ to turn this battlefield win into a definitive victory.
