osama bin laden death One year ago today, President Barack Obama gave the nod to U.S. Navy Seals to raid Osama bin Laden‘s compound in Pakistan and take him out

It was a solemn day for some and a joyous one for others. President Obama was praised even by former President Bush making the “right call.” But one question still looms over many Americans and those nations around the world who were (and still are) in the cross-hairs of terrorist hellbent on avenging bin Laden’s death: Are we safer?

The Associated Press reports that al Qaeda is too busy being surviving to carry out another Sept. 11-style attack. But the terrorist cell is still thinking of ways to get back at the U.S.

The Associated Press has more:

“It’s wishful thinking to say al-Qaida is on the brink of defeat,” says Seth Jones, a Rand analyst and adviser to U.S. special operations forces. “They have increased global presence, the number of attacks by affiliates has risen, and in some places like Yemen, they’ve expanded control of territory.”

It’s a complicated, somewhat murky picture for Americans to grasp.

U.S. officials say bin Laden’s old team is all but dismantled. But they say new branches are hitting Western targets and U.S. allies overseas, and still aspire to match their parent organization’s milestone of Sept. 11, 2001.

The deadliest is in Yemen.

“They are continuing to try to again, carry out an attack against U.S. persons inside of Yemen, as well as against the homeland,” White House counterterrorism advisor John Brennan said yesterday on ABC’s “This Week.”

Do you feel that the U.S. is doing enough to make you safe? And, more importantly, do you support the U.S. entering other sovereign nations to take out those our government feels threaten our national security?

Let us know what you think!
