Al Qaeda is making a comeback. Bin Laden is still in charge.

So much for the Global War on Terror. If I have my recent history right, George Bush was going to get Bin Laden before he decided he didn't care about him. Well, Bin Laden and Al Qaeda are making a comeback while the U.S. is pinned down in Iraq. If this can happen, George Bush doesn't care about the security of Americans. The NY Times has the story:

As recently as 2005, American intelligence assessments described senior leaders of Al Qaeda as cut off from their foot soldiers and able only to provide inspiration for future attacks. But more recent intelligence describes the organization’s hierarchy as intact and strengthening.

“The chain of command has been re-established,” said one American government official, who said that the Qaeda “leadership command and control is robust.”

American officials and analysts said a variety of factors in Pakistan had come together to allow “core Al Qaeda” — a reference to Mr. bin Laden and his immediate circle — to regain some of their strength. The emergence of a relative haven in North Waziristan and the surrounding area has helped senior operatives communicate more effectively with the outside world via courier and the Internet.
How George Bush let the people who attacked this country get away with it is really beyond explanation. How the Republicans in Congress let this happen defies explanation. Thanks to Bush and his GOP allies, the world is a much more dangerous place.

Al Qaeda is back. Bin Laden has reasserted his authority. It's really almost unbelievable.
