"Al-Qaida is now an idea, not an organisation"Aug 05 2005

"Al-Qaida is now an idea, not an organisation". "The terrorist attacks organised directly by al-Qaida, most of which took place between 1998 and 2002, had two aims. One was wounding the enemy, America and its allies, but another, equally important, was to use carefully choreographed acts to impress, amaze and inspire those in the Islamic world who had yet to heed the call to arms."
