During the 2012 election, President Obama and the Democrats all said that terrorist group al Qaeda was doing this.
That was a convenient political story invented to make Obama look strong against threats to America.
Then the Benghazi attack happened, four Americans died, and Obama, Hillary Clinton and the rest of the political officials blamed the attack on a YouTube movie. That never made any sense. President Obama didn’t want to answer any questions about it. He still hasn’t even explained where he was and what he was doing — he was supposed to command the military response — on the night of the attack.
Today, the chiefs of US intelligence testified to Congress that al Qaeda isn’t on the run at all. It’s doing this. That will make it even harder to track and destroy.
CBS’ Sharyl Attkisson reports:
Two of the nation’s chief intelligence officials on Tuesday confirmed to Congress that al Qaeda is no longer “on the run,” as leaders have been saying for years.
“Is al Qaeda on the run and on the path to defeat?” Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., asked in a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing Tuesday.
Director of National Intelligence James Clapper responded, “No, it is morphing and — and franchising itself and not only here but other areas of the world.”
Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, added, “They are not.”
