According to CBS News, the intelligence community is exploring the information obtained during the raid in an attempt to learn al Qaeda intentions and the identity and whereabouts of key al Qaeda players.

American officials are now turning their focus to the elimination of Ayman al-Zawahri, bin Laden’s second in command, and other senior operative planners who pose a threat to western interests.
