Ex-CIA Official: Al-Qaida Fully Operational


Wries Michael Scheuer, (22-year veteran with the CIA who created and served as the chief of the agency's Osama bin Laden unit at the Counterterrorist Center) the fact is that the al-Qaida forces we are fighting in those two countries are the group’s insurgent forces, not its "special forces," who he defines as those who attacked Washington and New York on 9/11. "As noted, those forces left Afghanistan before the U.S. Marines landed and have been planning new attacks since then in Pakistan’s border provinces, Saudi Arabia, Britain, and other secure locations in Europe, across the Muslim world, and perhaps even in the United States and Canada."
