Al-Qaeda is now the same strength as it was for 911!


www.foxnews.com

WASHINGTON — U.S. intelligence analysts have concluded Al Qaeda 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 rebuild despite nearly six years of bombings, war and other tactics aimed at crippling it.

This could just be a huge fear mongering campain by the goverment.

I feel all these warning are just getting us prepaired so when it happens they can say we warned you,we told you..

Well then why did'nt you stop them...Crazy times in the upcoming months,be ready poeple.

And if for some reason bush acts upon his dictatorship bill,we must immediatly have an uprise,we can't just come here and whine..That will be the time when protesting should be at the top of the list,besides survival..

God Bless.

I wanna clear something up, people are trying to be
prophetic by saying there will be a bombing this summer.
That part is inevitable, but it could be a fear campaign.

I feel sorry for the US citizens because they are the ones
who must live with the fear and not the government.
While the government is sitting back and just saying
sorry for the families that died in a tragedy you are the
ones feeling it! Wake Up!
Terrorism has broken into your home and you are
fast asleep.

Why isnt the world safer as Jr, claims?

What happened to the "success" of the war?

Why are we still there and our own are dying when Al Qaeda is so strong and determined?

Does anyone still live under the illusion that we are there to spread "democracy" and it will be welcomed with open arms?

Why are we fighting this war?

Equinox99 nice response,although im not trying to be a prophet lol.

something else i just though of is this artical says Pakistan signed a treaty with Al-Qeada and the Taleban saying they could open up bases in northern Pakistan along the border with Afganastan,and America nor Pakistani army has the right to engage them..

Well whatever happend to all the Bush speaches saying if you harbor terrorist you will be considered a terrorist and face the same consequences
as the terrorist..

I say we arent touching Pakistan because they can touch us back,they have a nuclear program and have had it for a while..

Not to mention A.Q Kahn one of their nuke experts that sold nuclear information to Iran and other places,who knows..

AQ.Khan is only on house arrest for his crimes..This is just such bs

Isn't it grand that the Bush administration has managed to; after thier vaunted "war on terror" to allow this group to regroup and be at the same strenght as they were before 9/11. Patheic, and impeachable, the president has not, by HIS OWN standards made the homeland safer.
We really need to rid ourselves of this menace before he ushers in our (the US's) complete destruction.

obs out

Are there any other sources besides fox news that says this? A quick search just shows Chertoff in Chicago telling about his "gut feeling". Definately a prelude to attack in Chicago. If something happens there, with all this hype leading up to it, it is just gonna fuel more conspiracy fodder. All you in Chicago keep a watch for detonation specialists.

Peace

Really? Where? I'd like to see this "treaty". More specifically, since a treaty requires people from both parties to sign it, I'd be interested in seeing who signed it for al Qaeda.

Here you are friend,www.crosswalk.com...
news.bbc.co.uk...
These explain it ok,a google search will fin amany more.

This should enrage you,we can go after saddam when they say he was connected to 911 then they say he was not..When i say they i mean from rummy to rice to bush..

We won't hit them because they hit back.Even though odds are the most wanted man in america UBL is most likely in this protected region..

Hrmm why are'nt the 911 attacks listed as one of UBL's crimes on the FBI most wanted list..Unless of course "other attacks" is what they classify 911 as www.fbi.gov...

I love this country but eff this goverment..

God Bless

I'm sorry but what a complete load of hooey


"Al-Qaeda" was the name given to a nameless and loosely affiliated (i.e. like-minded) group of Islamists by the FBI. Those suspected of belonging to an organisation can be tried under existing anti-mafia legislation for belonging to a group.

Osama Bin Laden never used the phrase "Al-Qaeda" until after the 9/11 bombings. The name was that given to a CIA database of suspected and known Islamic terrorists.

My point being that there was no cohesive structure to either destroy or rebuild up to the "same strength" as pre-9/11. Therefore this is a complete fabrication designed to try and blow some wind into the terrorist boogey-man inflatable doll.

How can a group that had no central command structure, membership procedure, central funding or infrastructure rebuild?

If one day I said I am allied to every one around the World who uses a knife and fork, then have some one come in and try to smash my alliance, then have them say they had reduced our strength, then we rebuilt it, you could see how ludicrous the claim of reduction and rebuilding would be. The same applies to al-Qaeda. It never existed as an entity in the first place.

subz,

Ya but you eating with a fork and knife is not a threat.The fact is there are terrorist,and they will give their life to take yours.This is undisputed fact and always has been..

I dont care if the goverment called them Teddy bears of death,they are out there and they do exist.

And they can regroup and get stronger..I dont understand how you think they can't....

The only way i undrstand it is they are shooting rockets and using rocks as the aiming device,and we are the most sophisticated country in the world yet they can regroup?Its because Pakistan is harboring them,wich we said we would treat any nation that harbors terrorist as the terroois themselves..

Check my above post for more info on the Pakistan signed peace treaty with taliban

I submit the following:

Someone asked for another source:


Government report: Al Qaeda strongest since September 11, 2001

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Al Qaeda is the strongest it has been since the aftermath of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, a new U.S. government analysis concludes, according to a senior government official who has seen it.

Despite a campaign of military action and counterterrorism operations, al Qaeda has regained its strength and found safe haven in the tribal areas of Pakistan, the report says, according to counterterrorism officials familiar with the report.


Source:

www.cnn.com...



But following is what gets to me. As part of the "War on Terror" I thought
we had Al Qaeda "on the run"....


Condoleezza Rice Interview with Wolf Blitzer

RICE: Wolf, I thought he did a fine job. And he did a fine job of showing the American people why he is the leader that he is and why he is the leader to carry us through this war on terrorism.

What he did was to demonstrate that he understands this war on terrorism. The idea that somehow you kill Osama bin Laden and maybe al Qaeda wraps up and then you're done with the war on terrorism could not be further from the truth.

To be clear, we are after Osama bin Laden. He is being chased by Pakistani forces and Afghan forces and American and other forces. We have broken up 75 percent of the al Qaeda known leadership. Pakistan and Saudi Arabia fully...

BLITZER: Well, when you say 75 percent, of how many leaders are we talking -- 75 percent of a quantity of what? 30, 25?

RICE: Of its known leadership.

BLITZER: But how many...

RICE: I would suspect that that's in the tens to hundreds -- tens to 100. BLITZER: Because that CIA analysis had a relatively small number when they had the 75 percent figure.

General Pervez Musharraf,

General Pervez Musharraf, Pakistan's military ruler, has claimed this month's arrest of a senior al-Qaeda operative has helped to “break the back” of the terrorist organisation, severing the links between the central command and members on the ground.

President Bush

BUSH: Al Qaeda is on the run. That group of terrorists who attacked our country is slowly, but surely being decimated. Right now, about half of all the top al Qaeda operatives are either jailed or dead. In either case, they are not a problem anymore.


Note* The last line was proven to be highly controversial. It was misquoted many times. Supposedly, Bush meant the "captured or jailed" Al Qaeda members are not a problem anymore, not Al Qaeda in general.

Why the sudden shift? Could be that this President is scraping bottom of his approval rating and his fellow Repubs are turning on him. We need another big-time distraction from his failed presidency OR another attack to be put in line. Something may very well be in the works OR just another sleigh-of-hand. The "tingle in my tummy" tells me something's up. Be vigilant either way.

That may be a fact but it's not the point. The point is that these terrorists have no organisation with which to rebuild in the first place. Al-Qaeda never existed until the FBI gave a name to a fictional umbrella organisation. They named it so that they could charge conspirators under existing anti-mafia legislation. Legislation that requires an organisation to be named and for members to seek membership from a designated leadership.

Yes terrorists exist and so do rapists, but there is no Al-Pervert umbrella organisation that they all carry membership cards for. Al-Qaeda never existed as a bonafide entity until the United States gave it a name. The only connection these people have are that they are Islamic extremists. It has even been admitted by the US government that Osama Bin Laden did not give orders for events such as the Madrid Bombings or the London Bombings even though Al-Qaeda supposedly carried them out. Al-Qaeda is a banner used by less imaginative terrorists post-9/11 to increase their stature.

How can something "regroup" if they weren't a group to begin with? Al-Qaeda is a fiction. Terrorists are real but Al-Qaeda as an entity that controls terrorist cells never existed.
