Bin Laden Is Dead, but Al Qaeda Is Alive

Gaffe Czar Biden boasts that Bin Laden is dead and GM is alive. Obama may have whacked Osama but al Qaeda is alive and growing. The attack on the Libyan consulate that killed four Americans on Obama’s watch may be a result of Obama’s crowing about killing Bin Laden. The Obama administration skewered national security in favor of protecting Obama’s election chances in diverting blame for the attacks from Obama appeasement and apology foreign policies.

GM is gasping for survival with taxpayers still on the hook for billions in the illegal union payoff rammed through by Obama but that’s another story.

THOMAS JOSCELYN at The Weekly Standard has the story about thriving terrorism:


A central tenet of President Obama’s foreign policy platform is that al Qaeda is “on the path to defeat.” The death of Osama bin Laden, drone strikes in northern Pakistan and elsewhere, the Arab Spring, and Obama’s more conciliatory approach to the Muslim world have all supposedly come together to sound the death knell for al Qaeda.


But what if none of that is actually true and al Qaeda is, in reality, a more durable foe than the administration wants us to believe?

The numbers don’t lie. Al Qaeda, its affiliates, and its allies still kill and wound thousands of people worldwide each year—on a scale that is on par with, if not greater than, years past. But even this only tells part of the story. Al Qaeda’s ideology remains potent. And the organization itself is becoming stronger in some countries, not weaker.
