Al-Qaida has rebuilt, U.S. intel warns
U.S. intelligence analysts have concluded al-Qaida has rebuilt its operating capability to a level not seen since just before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, The Associated Press has learned. The conclusion suggests that the group that launched the most devastating terror attack on the United States has been able to regroup along the Afghan-Pakistani border despite nearly six years of bombings, war and other tactics aimed at crippling it.
U.S. Warns Of Stronger Al-Qaeda
Six years after the Bush administration declared war on al-Qaeda, the terrorist network is gaining strength and has established a safe haven in remote tribal areas of western Pakistan for training and planning attacks, according to a new Bush administration intelligence report to be discussed today at a White House meeting.The Bush administration never really had any interest in going after al-Qaeda. They wanted to use 911 as an excuse to attack Iraq from the beginning. This is not incompetence it is treasonous. While Cheney chased his dreams of Iraqi oil the real enemy of the US and the western world has been allowed to reconstitute itself.
The report, a five-page threat assessment compiled by the National Counterterrorism Center, is titled "Al-Qaida Better Positioned to Strike the West," intelligence officials said. It concludes that the group has significantly rebuilt itself despite concerted U.S. attempts to smash the network.
