CIA: al Qaeda will "almost certainly" try to avenge bin Laden
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - CIA Director Leon Panetta on Monday said al Qaeda would "almost certainly" try to avenge the U.S. killing of Osama bin Laden.
"Though Bin Laden is dead, al-Qaeda is not. The terrorists almost certainly will attempt to avenge him, and we must -- and will -- remain vigilant and resolute," Panetta said.
