Robert Young Pelton (the man who did the TV show "the worlds most dangerous places"), went to Afghanistan in the heat of the war and claimed that Al-Quida was a myth there as well, there were only a tiny tiny group that was disabandoned when the northan allience started advancing (Most of Pelton's show was footage of him hanging out with the imfamous Northan Allience war lord generals during battles).
Ive allways felt that Al-quida was blown completley out of proportion (primarily as a scare tatic). I mean, half of the people being killed in Iraq at
one stage were all being labled as "High ranging Al-Quida leaders". Its just bullsh*t.
I dont believe they are a well connected viable terrorist network anymore, or ever were.
Thats assuming they ever existed, im still not abandoning the chance that they were created by the powers that be inorder to push foward an adjenda
through fear. Who knows, it would be wrong to cancel anything out just yet when evidence may suggest it.
