TERRORIST 3 and Indonesia. In 2014, the group initiated an off-shoot in the Indian subcontinent to establish Sharia Law (Stansfield, 2016). Osama bin Laden was murdered on May 2, 2011, by US military officers after he was found in Abbottabad (Stansfield, 2016). This was a major setback for the group. Osama was the group's founder; he provided much financial support and inspiration to the members. In short, he was a very important asset to the group. Al-Qaeda has not been able to recover from the loss since Zawahiri, who took over, lacked Osama's status and authority. The US government has taken various actions to protect its citizens against the group. Most of its strategies are directed towards; a. Denying the attackers the support and sanctuary of rogue states. b. Avoid attacks by terrorist networks. c. Building of structures that help in fighting the terror attacks.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
