Front Page Mag: “A vocal school of thought among some foreign experts of the left was that there was no Al Qaeda. The updated version of that thesis was embraced by Obama and some of his subordinates looking to do an end zone dance and hang up the Mission Accomplished banner by celebrating victory over the core of Al Qaeda and dismissing its affiliates, some of which number in the tens of thousands and are fighting to take over entire countries, as Obama put it, as Jayvee players in Lakers uniforms.
But what if the decline of the core Al Qaeda and the growth of its affiliates is the next step? What if the Lakers decided that they don’t need one really good team, but a hundred smaller teams in every city because they want to capture the entire game?”
Opinion: To borrow a word from President George W. Bush, the Obama White House has misunderestimated the spread of al Qaeda either by negligence or choice. Al Qaeda is popping up in small teams in Iraq, Syria, Egypt Libya and the Maghreb (Northwest Africa: Egypt Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and Libya, Mauritania and Mali).
In Luke 21:9 the Apostle spoke of commotions, a perfect 1st century description of terror:
“But when you hear of wars and commotions, do not be terrified; for these things must come to pass first, but the end will not come immediately.”
