Why are they making Al-quaeda seem like such a huge threat?

I'm listening to the audiobook Ghost: Confessions of a Counterterrorism Agent and it seems like the terrorist threat from 20 years ago was larger than the one today. This was a time when there were more terror groups outside of ones allied with Al-quaeda were targeting areas in the USA.

It really seems like the terror problem was a lot moreso back in the days before 9-11. I think things have quieted down a bit.

Because that was the original story

Actually it has dramatically increased. At least, the number of members in these alleged terrorist organizations have. And I believe that was the result of all the media attention they have received. These organizations are tangible now. Essentially, I think the US in affect created them.

Every scary story needs a boogie-man.

Your question has been discussed in one way or another, quite a lot on ATS. You should check out the video, "Oil, Smoke and Mirrors," and also the BBC television documentary about Operation Gladio.

Here are links to those videos.

Basically, sir_chancelot had it about right, but the videos fill in a little more detail.
