Earlier this August, Joe Biden’s claim that al Qaeda is “gone” from Afghanistan is false.
Even his very own United States Secretary of State, Antony Blinken admitted that Biden’s information about al-Qaeda was inaccurate, Pentagon press secretary John Kirby confirmed a statement that “We know that al Qaeda is a presence, as well as ISIS, in Afghanistan, and we’ve talked about that for quite some time.” Well, that’s a big slap to Biden’s face.
Recently, the leader of Al-Qaeda has appeared in a video released on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, amid rumors that he could be dead.
Ayman al-Zawahiri – who succeeded Osama bin Laden following his death in 2011 – praised al-Qaeda attacks, including one that targeted Russian troops in Syria in January.
Rita Katz tweeted, ”Amid rumors of his death, Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri shown in a new 60-minute video, this time offering some evidence that he is not dead – particularly, reference to events after December when rumors of death surfaced,”
16) Tragic as it is to say, this 9/11 anniversary is a uniquely positive one for al-Qaeda. As one AQ supporter wrote, the US leaving Afghanistan is validation of Bin Laden’s vision and the “blessed” 9/11 attacks, and that “Afghanistan is the beginning.” https://t.co/h6CycTHHia

Rita Katz is a terrorism analyst and the co-founder of the Search International Terrorist Entities Intelligence Group, has explained the possibilities that he is still dead, but it would have had to have taken place in or after January 2021.
She said, “However, Zawahiri doesn’t mention Taliban’s Afghanistan victory, and his talk of US ‘making its exit from Afghanistan’ could have been saying early as Feb 2020 upon Doha Agreement, Thus, he could still be dead, though if so, would have been at some point in or after Jan 2021.”
“intelligence agencies have, as of yet, offered no proof or solid assessments that Zawahiri is dead, leaving the question of his current status in the air and tragic as it is to say, this 9/11 anniversary is a uniquely positive one for al-Qaeda. As one AQ supporter wrote, the US leaving Afghanistan is a validation of Bin Laden’s vision and the ‘blessed’ 9/11 attacks, and that ‘Afghanistan is the beginning.” She added.
President Osama Joe Biden just opened new hope for these Jihadists.
Americans, let’s all be ready again.
