U.S. Rep. Peter T. King, New York Republican and Chairman of the House's Homeland Security Committee, said Tuesday that al Qaeda is a greater threat now than it was before the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. "That is the consensus of most intelligence experts," he said on CNN's "Starting Point." "What they've done is they are now more under the radar screen, they're more spread out, and they're harder to define. It was great killing
[Osama] bin Laden, I give President Obama credit for that, for bin Laden being killed, but having said that, he was one element, because al Qaeda [had] shifted. And it [had] shifted its emphasis from being a centralized force to being a diversified, diverse force, which is harder to track down. They're under the radar screen in many cases. "They're a greater threat than they were back on September 11, because of the fact that they are much more spread out, the fact that there is active recruiting going on, people under the radar screen, and if you talk to intelligence experts, most will agree with that," Mr. King continued. "That on September 11 and the immediate years afterwards we knew who they were, we know we had a generalized idea of how to get them, and we were getting them one by one. And the culmination was when President Obama got bin Laden in May of 2011
but the fact is, it has now spread out into many different groups, and that is why it is considered by most intelligence experts to be more dangerous now than it was then, and that's the story the president is not telling."

Considering that Al Qaeda has operatives in the Pentagon and their Manchurian candidate in the white hut and many more "moderate Muslims" (oxymoronic) living in the USA ... I would say that Al Qaeda is indeed a far greater threat.
Huma would disagree.
Its become pointless perpetual war for perpetual peace.
Yep. Obama killing Osama, with his bare hands I’m told, plus his endless drone attacks have made it much easier for al Queda to recruit.
Epic FAIL obozo!
freedom fighters in Libya and Egypt=aq
More of a threat than the Tea Party???
Hey Rep. King, do you realize that they are already in the WH in the shape of the muzzie brotherhood?
Did you, or any of you fellow critters, register a protest, make any comments or say anything publicly in that regard when they had a cozy din-din in the White Hut?
THAT would have really put you and your colleagues in the limelight that you all seek.
