Bush Iraq War In Trouble. Al Qaida Back In News. Way to go!!!
Posted by QB on July 12, 2007
This report is published by associated press which makes no sense instead it raised many question in my mind.
A counterterrorism official familiar with a five-page summary of the document — titled “Al-Qaida better positioned to strike the West” — called it a stark appraisal. The analysis will be part of a broader meeting at the White House today about an upcoming National Intelligence Estimate.The findings suggests that the network that launched the most devastating terror attack on U.S. soil has been able to regroup despite nearly six years of bombings, war and other tactics aimed at dismantling it.
Who are these counterterrism officials who are so brain dead who believed that invading Afghanistan and Iraq will destroy Al Qaida ideology? These counterterrorism experts looks like have no analytic abilities to analyze the Al Qaida or terrorism correctly. These socalled counterterrorism experts failed to see that Al Qaida ideology has gained more support and popularity with Bush invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq. The bombing mostly killed innocent unarmed children women and men not the Al Qaida members, so anybody who believes that Bush “war on terror” has damaged Al Qaida is an idiot. The fact is Al Qaida is getting more recruits from the bombed civilians.
And Chertoff repeated that today during appearances on morning television news shows. But in an interview on NBC’s “Today” show, he also said officials believe “we’re entering a period” of increased risk.
Asked on ABC’s “Good Morning America” to explain al-Qaida’s continuing strength nearly six years after the Sept. 11 attacks in the United States, Chertoff said, “It reflects the fact that just as we improve our defenses, the enemy tries to improve its defenses and rebuild itself.”
Al-Qaida is “considerably operationally stronger than a year ago” and has “regrouped to an extent not seen since 2001,” the counterterrorism official said, paraphrasing the report’s conclusions. “They are showing greater and greater ability to plan attacks in Europe and the United States.”
The group also has created “the most robust training program since 2001, with an interest in using European operatives,” the official quoted the report as saying.
Chertoff has the gut feeling that Al Qaida will attack US with no proof of real threat. This looks like Chertoff is trying to create fear among ill-informed Americans to rally support for Iraq war which Bush regime needs desperately right now. Chertoff I am sure will not explain why he believe Al Qaida is stronger and has the ability to attack Europe and USA because it is classified information for the security of the nation.
John Kringen, who heads the CIA’s analysis directorate, echoed the concerns about al-Qaida’s resurgence during testimony and conversations with reporters at a House Armed Services Committee hearing on Wednesday.
“They seem to be fairly well settled into the safe haven and the ungoverned spaces of Pakistan,” Kringen testified. “We see more training. We see more money. We see more communications. We see that activity rising.”
The threat assessment comes as the 16 U.S. intelligence agencies prepare a National Intelligence Estimate focusing on threats to the United States. A senior intelligence official, who spoke on condition of anonymity while the high-level analysis was being completed, said the document has been in the works for roughly two years.
John Kringen testimony does not makes sense at all and the House Armed Services Committee looks like bunch of idiots who did not asked him when they have physical evidence and the location of all Al Qaida activities than why the US government did not ask Pervez Musharraf to take action. Pervez Musarraf government is at the breaking poiint right now with Lal Masjid and the Tribal Elders issuing ultimatum to dismantle all the Military checks posts in tribal areas by July 15 otherwise they will break the peace treaty. This report mentioned the peace treaty signed by Federal government and the Tribal Elders is the main cause of escalating Al Qaida threat. These analysts have to look at the tribal area history that they were never in control of Federal government and Pervez Musharraf can only do little without offending their way of life to avoid all out war.
The Bush administration has repeatedly cited al-Qaida as a key justification for continuing the fight in Iraq.
“The No. 1 enemy in Iraq is al-Qaida,” White House press secretary Tony Snow said Wednesday. “Al-Qaida continues to be the chief organizer of mayhem within Iraq.”
The findings could bolster the president’s hand at a moment when support on Capitol Hill for the war is eroding and the administration is struggling to defend its decision for a military buildup in Iraq.
The report is all about providing credibility and support for Bush Iraq war.
Al Qaida ideology can only be eliminated and destroyed with US and European governments if they stop rejecting to discuss the issue and try to resolve them instead of shutting down all doors of discussion with their arrogant slogan “We don’t negotiate with terrorists”. Killing Osama Bin Laden or Ayman Al Zahawari will not eliminate terrorism, the Afghanistan and Iraq occupation will not eliminate terrorism, unconditional US and European support will not eliminate terrorism. These are all the problems which was very badly handled by an idiot President who believed invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq is the solution which infact has escalated the violence and terrorism.
Anybody know how can I get counterterrorism expert consultant job with Bush regime for only 1 billion dollar per annum. I can do the better job than these idiots who called themselves terrorism and Osama Bin Laden Al Qaida experts.
