On October 28th, it was reported that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the head of the radical terrorist group, ISIS, is dead. ISIS is currently weakened, and there is more possibility for unrest within the group.

While this is a huge victory for the United States and the War on Terror, ISIS has survived the loss of their leaders before. The U.S. does not have any concrete plans according to Time, however, the U.S. has experience dealing with ISIS and are already preparing for when the group will name Baghdadi’s successor.

Despite his death, the U.S. knows that when you cut off the head of a snake, another will take its place, and to remain vigilant.
