Osama bin Laden is not planning the attacks any longer but he is now Al Qaeda's Che Guevara who keeps the organization united, German espionage chief Ernst Uhrlau declared for the German Bild publication.

Uhrlau added that bin Laden is a true leader of the organization who inspires its members and is a real model to follow. Moreover, Uhrlau thinks that bin Laden is no longer planning the terrorist attacks. More precisely, his role has changed dramatically: he is now maintaining the cohesion among all terrorist networks.
