"THE world may be better off if Osama Bin Laden remains at large, according to the Central Intelligence Agency’s recently departed executive director," Tony Allen-Mills writes in today's edition of The Sunday Times. "If the world’s most wanted terrorist is captured or killed, a power struggle among his Al-Qaeda subordinates may trigger a wave of terror attacks, said AB 'Buzzy' Krongard, who stepped down six weeks ago as the CIA’s third most senior executive."
This reminds me of a late eighties or early nineties storyline that appeared in Marvel Comics' The Punisher where the titular character decided not to kill The Kingpin because he, Frank Castle, figured it was safer to have Kingpin in charge than any new supervillains that might arise.
