That's going to change a lot.
The United States says a lot of things. I doubt this is going to make as much of an impact as they are saying it will; they're simply desperate to prove that we're "winning" in Iraq, whatever that means.
Simply put, al Qaeda is a little too vast to be crippled by the death of one.

Right, you killed the leader. Guess what, someone else gets promoted. The only thing you can hope is that the new person is less competent than the old one.
Terrorism doesn't need leaders.
Nor do flanking maneuvers.
This is how many Al Qaeda in Iraq leaders now that have been killed?
What's the monster that grows another head when it gets chopped off? Yeah, that's Al Qaeda.
Killing their leaders has proved ineffective in the past, so why will be effective now?
For the Emperor! Knights of Caliban!

That's the beauty of a war on terrorism. It really can't be won in any conventional ways, and thus can be sustained, indefinitely.
