Al Qaeda is now as dangerous as it was in 2001. More alarming is the fact that terrorists in Syria are being trained to come back to the US to kill Americans. This was revealed in testimony by James Clapper at a senate hearing on Capitol Hill Wednesday.
During the senate hearings on Capitol Hill today, James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence, said that the al Qaeda threat is as bad as it was in 2001.
More than 7,000 Westerners are fighting with terrorists in Syria. When Sen. Dianne Feinstein asked Clapper if we should be concerned about terrorists coming back to the US to engage in attacks here in the US, Clapper said ‘we should be very concerned.’
These 7,000 can come back to the US and other Western nations trained and with new contacts and plans to attack the homeland….the Boston Bombing could be the first of many such attacks on US soil….
Karzai who is bedded down with the Taliban wants us out of Afghanistan while Obama is fighting to do just the opposite. Obama, playing toy soldier with the men and women who serve our nation wants to keep our military in Afghanistan. Doing so only guarantees that more American blood will be spilled and more American lives lost in spite of the warnings from DNI, James Clapper.
Creating our own monsters? There is no question that Barack Obama is financing America’s enemies. That is bound to return to haunt us.
Hard to believe that we still have learned nothing from the Russians who have been fighting jihadists for centuries.
