New bin Ladens will keep popping up, expert warns 

“Osama bin Laden has gone to the great bordello in the sky that awaits every good jihadi,” writes Robert Spencer, director of Jihad Watch and author of “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades),” in “Osama Gets His Virgins,” published in Human Events:

 Spencer calls the death of bin Laden “a psychological blow to the jihadis and a confidence-booster for Americans,” but adds a cautionary note:

“Until Barack Obama and other Western leaders face the fact that Osama bin Laden was operating within the broad mainstream of Islamic teaching, they will be constantly puzzled by the advent of new bin Ladens, and new al-Qaedas, all over the globe. How is it that all these disparate individuals and groups misunderstand Islam in all the same way? Until U.S. officials can answer that question correctly, we will have made no headway, no matter how many al-Qaeda masterminds we corner and kill in Pakistan.”
