    On April 30, 2009, the U.S. State Department reported that al-Zawahiri had emerged as al-Qaeda's operational and strategic commander and that Osama bin Laden was now only the ideological figurehead of the organization.

He was active in operational planning and in driving tactical decisions within al-Qaeda."
