The death of Osama bin Laden “is not the death of terrorism, unfortunately,” U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told CNN at an international security conference Thursday.

Al Qaeda has been reaching out with “English-language publications and the like,” prompting an increase in the number of individual potential terrorists, she said.

U.S. counterterror strategy now includes both “widening our borders” by preventing potential terrorists abroad from boarding planes to the United States as well as dealing with “this growth of homegrown extremism,” she said.

Napolitano was speaking a day after President Barack Obama’s counterterror adviser outlined key points of the new strategy.
