US Strike On Al Qaeda Leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri Is Long Overdue Says Joseph M. Lenard, Author Of Bestselling Historical Fiction Novel, Terror Strikes

Al-Zawahiri was killed by US forces in Afghanistan on Sunday.

    WILMINGTON, NC, August 05, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- On Monday, President Biden announced that a counterterrorism operation took out Ayman Al-Zawahiri, an Al Qaeda leader involved in the September 11 attack on the Twin Towers in New York City as well as being a major player in the slaughter of Egyptian Leader Anwar Sadat in 1981. The operation took place nearly 11 years after the 9/11 attack on US soil.

"Finally," was the first phrase bestselling author Joseph M. Lenard uttered. He then went more in-depth with his analysis of the situation:

"These strikes do more than just take out one leader. They have a cascading effect of turmoil within the ranks of the enemy. Several emerging leaders, wanting to fill the void created, might now create internal fighting as they jockey to take Al Zawahiri's place. While they squabble within, they have less time to plot large-scale operations, or engage operationally prior existing plans not yet undertaken. Local intelligence is more important than ever - to be vigilant against threats of smaller scale retaliation strikes from rogue sympathetic unofficial cells, or radicalized individuals that may react, similar to the Wisconsin Christmas Parade assault, that might be put into motion."

According to an article on NBC News, "In 2001, al-Zawahiri escaped U.S. forces when they invaded Afghanistan and toppled the previous Taliban government, which had refused to hand over bin Laden in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. Al-Zawahiri's whereabouts were long unknown."

As stated on the ABC News site, Biden, "hailed the operation as a significant win in the fight against terror groups overseas -- including, as the White House was quick to point out almost a year after the messy exit from Afghanistan, in countries where the U.S. no longer maintains a military presence." In the same article, Biden was quoted as saying, "We continue to mourn every innocent life that was stolen on 9/11 and honor their memories. To the families who lost fathers and mothers, husbands, wives, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, friends and coworkers on that searing September day, it is my hope that this decisive action will bring one more measure of closure."

Joseph M Lenard goes on to comment about the Biden address to the Nation regarding the Al Zawahiri assault on his Terror Strikes websites blog: ... -on-sunday.

Honor. Integrity. Patriotism. -- For some people these are words. For bestselling author Joseph M Lenard, these are the core values that he embodies – every day - deeply ingrained in every facet of his life and work.

It is this set of cherished values he brings to life in his latest #1 bestselling historical fiction novel, Terror Strikes. The book has been compared to The Sum of All Fears and Deep Impact. Joseph M. Lenard shreds the "creative writing process formulaic methodologies" to create a writing style and literature like no other author before.

Billed as a book for conservatives, but appropriate for all readers, this extraordinary new book is a stunning achievement, set apart from even the best historical fiction books, as it clearly demonstrates the need for situational awareness and vigilance in a world in which mass shootings and other forms of terrorism have become the norm. Reviewers have called the book "compelling", "historically accurate", and utterly "unique".

Terror Strikes connects the dots of not just foreign terrorists, but those both foreign and domestic, that abhor Western culture and their attempts through terror attacks and other more shadowy undermining of our collective freedom to enjoy life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Bruce Fleury wrote in the foreword of Terror Strikes: "Joe Lenard's book Terror Strikes, although a work of fiction, is especially timely and topical… [He takes] on an international crisis that, if not addressed with more urgency, threatens to condemn our descendants to live in a 7th-Century nightmare from which there may very well be no awakening."

Whether you are a staunch conservative, a prepper, or just have concerns about what is happening in American life and society today, Terror Strikes will answer many of the questions you have regarding terrorism, foreign and domestic, and will make for a remarkable reading experience.
