According to the U.S. News & World Report, the United States of America is in danger of enduring another 9/11 attack!
A senior U.S. lawmaker, federal law enforcement and intelligence officials have observed that factions have grown deeper among the Taliban, al-Qaida and the Islamic State group, especially with the recent death of the Taliban’s one-eyed leader, Mullah Omar.
Brian Fairchild, with a 20-year history with the CIA, testified before Congress on terrorism. He pointed out that the hostility and bitterness between ISIS and the Taliban spells doom for the US. It is as, if not more, dangerous a national security hazard as it was before the September 11, 2001, attacks.
Fairchild further added: “Right now, al-Qaida, under Zawahiri, needs the Khorasan group (a group of senior al-Qaeda members who reportedly operate in Syria) or some affiliated group to attack the U.S. again like 9/11 in order to lift up his stature, and that of the organization. He doesn’t want something small, but something big – a big-scale attack like 9/11 to make him relevant again.”
These are extremely dangerous times as Islamic State, al-Qaida and the Taliban fight and compete for dominance.
A 32-page Islamic State recruiting document, obtained in Pakistan by American Media Institute, detailed the growing division between the Islamic State group and al-Qaida. The document, authenticated by retired Defense Intelligence Agency Director, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, and two other senior U.S. intelligence officers, called for the Islamic State group to launch a war with India that would draw the United States into battle, leading to the end of the world.
The US would take the threat very seriously. So should India. There is already a presence of ISIS sympathizers in India.
