According to al Qaeda defector Jamal al-Fadl’s testimony on February 16, 2001, “Bin Laden organized al-Qaeda in a business-like manner–he formulates the general policies of al-Qaeda in consultation with his shura council. The shura makes executive decisions for the group. Subordinate to that council are other committees responsible for military affairs and the business interests of the group, as well as a fatwa committee, which issues rulings on Islamic Law, and a media group.”
