In preparation for a massive troop escalation in Afghanistan, Obama told Chinese students at a town hall meeting in Shanghai on Monday al-Qaeda remains an ominous threat. “I continue to believe that the greatest threat to the United States’ security are the terrorist networks like al-Qaeda,” Obama said. “They have now moved over the border of Afghanistan and are in Pakistan, but they continue to have networks with other extremist organizations in that region and I do believe it is important for us to stabilize Afghanistan.”
On the anniversary of the false flag attack on America in September, the U.S. top commander in Afghanistan said the exact opposite. “I do not see indications of a large al-Qaida presence in Afghanistan now,” Gen. Stanley McChrystal told reporters at the Dutch Defense Ministry. “We have not been struck again in the United States, and I think the strikes that would have hit across the world — not just in Europe or the United States but I think also in much of the Muslim world — I think have been prevented,” he added.
It is expected that British Prime Minister Gordon Brown will soon parrot Obama’s warning. “Gordon Brown will tonight vigorously defend Britain’s mission in Afghanistan and Pakistan, warning that al-Qaeda remains the biggest threat to Britain’s national security,” the Times Online reports today. “Speaking to the Lord Mayor’s Banquet at Guildhall, the Prime Minister will say that the terrorist network has an extensive recruitment operation across Africa, the Middle East, Western Europe and the UK. He will add that there are several hundred foreign fighters based in Pakistan traveling to training camps to learn bomb-making and weapons skills. Al-Qaeda also has links to the Afghan and Pakistan Taliban.”
