American top intelligence officials have warned that Al Qaeda may threaten the US in just 12 months time.
Prior to the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan, Pentagon officials expressed concerns that Al Qaeda could reconstitute within two years.
They’re now said to be revisiting this timeline in light of the takeover last month.
As well as rebuilding in Afghanistan, officials have warned that the Islamic terrorist group may threaten the US in the not so distant future.
Lt. Gen. Scott D. Berrier, the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency said today, September 14, as per The New York Times:
The current assessment probably conservatively is one to two years for Al Qaeda to build some capability to at least threaten the homeland.
