Al Qaeda: Alive and Well

Obama: 'We have gone after al Qaeda like never before'


The President said tonight, "We have gone after al Qaeda like never before."

And al Qaeda is thriving.

The most obvious example is the recent terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, which the administration long portrayed as a spontaneous protest.

The Free Beacon reported:

"Al Qaeda is, unfortunately, alive and well in the Maghreb, Yemen, and elsewhere, as the administration will probably admit after the election," said Elliott Abrams, who served in President George W. Bush’s national security council. "The claim that the organization was rendered toothless after [Osama bin Laden] was killed is simply not accurate, and every terrorism specialist in our government knows that."
