Al Qaeda moving freely in Afghanistan

| June 6, 2022

With the United States military out, Al Qaeda appears to have restored its safe haven in Afghanistan. Positive relationships with the Taliban assist with this endeavor. There are a couple of other major terrorist groups that appear to be moving forward in Afghanistan, including ISIS-K. Prison release, and recruitment, assisted the later with growing.

From the Daily Wire:

“The relationship between the Taliban and Al-Qaeda remains close, with the latter celebrating the former’s success and renewing its pledge of allegiance to [Taliban leader Hibatullah Akhundzada],” report states. “Member State assessments thus far suggest that Al-Qaeda has a safe haven under the Taliban and increased freedom of action. Ayman al-Zawahiri has issued more frequent recorded messages since August, and there is now proof of life for him as recently as February 2022.”

The report also states that two other major Islamic terrorist groups are alive and well inside Afghanistan, including ISIS-K, which “has financial resources and has grown in strength through prison releases and new recruitments.” The report also mentions the Haqqani Network as the “most successful” in gaining favor with the Taliban and the most “influential” of the different terrorist groups.

The report said that Al-Qaeda is “pleased with developments in Afghanistan” and that the terrorist group — which was responsible for 9/11 terrorist attacks on the U.S., which is the deadliest terrorist attack in world history — has used Biden’s chaotic and disastrous pullout from the country to “to attract new recruits and funding and inspire Al-Qaeda affiliates globally.”

“Going forward, Al-Qaeda appears free to pursue its objectives, short of international attacks or other high-profile activity that could embarrass the Taliban or harm their interests,” the report added. “These objectives are likely to include recruitment, training, fundraising and al-Zawahiri’s video communications. It is assessed that Al-Qaeda is focused on reorganizing itself in the short-to-medium term with the ultimate objective of continuing its idea of global jihad. While Al-Qaeda is reportedly aware of the need to avoid embarrassing the Taliban, it is noteworthy that when Taliban authorities were pressing to receive humanitarian support from the United Nations, Al-Qaeda did not soften its tone regarding the United Nations or its future intentions to mount attacks against Western targets.”

20 years of every commanding general getting top blocks in their OER.

That led to the Taliban being replaced by the Taliban…with billions of US arms.


Makes me want to throw someone else’s medals over the White House fence.

Makes me want to throw somebody over the White House… 😡 


If I am understanding Biblical prophesy correctly (a very big “if”) the raghead is correct, “Jihad will not end until the Last Day.”
It just won’t end the way he imagines. And there will be no-one waiting in the afterlife for him, but only an eternity of isolation in everlasting torment.


And I say…Amen!


I won’t challenge your understanding of the good book, sir.

My concern is what he’s allowed to do, unanswered, on the mortal plane between now and then.

بسمالله الرحمن الرحيم, I genuinely hope he gets raped to death by a vindictive billygoat long before the Last Day ever arrives.


I fully understand.
The whole Afghanistan thing has been one giant fuster cluck by our administrations (R) and (D) from day one.
One ought never go into battle without clearly defined goals. If we don’t know where we are going or what we are trying to accomplish, we go nowhere and accomplish nothing, regardless of lives and resources expended in the doing thereof.
Of course PINO Biden (ptuii) just handed weapons to our enemies for free, much like Obama handed weapons to the cartels in Mexico. (I sense a pattern there.)

Hey terrorists! How about we give you all the brown countries and we keep all the green ones?


Good ole’ Biden giving America a Joejob.. all teeth, then handing it over to its enemies.

Is the Taliban still asking for Western assistance to combat climate change?

Are the Taliban celebrating “Pride Month” in the interest of “diversity” other than on “Man-Love Thursday”?


A 30 day moratorium (siesta) on rooftop throwings.
Followed by a July throwfest… and crane rentals.

Durkha-durkha deadmohammedjihad, motherfucker! Those third world goat-and-donkey-humpers refuse to believe anything else and with China trying to manipulate them, I say let the CCP stick their appendages in that giant tar baby, A-stan is well known as “The Graveyard of Empires”, just ask the British, French and Russkies!


The minute George W said we were invading I and A at the same time I knew we bit off more than we could chew. The next 2 calls were my wife’s unit getting spun up for Iraq and mine for Afghanistan, jeez.


GWB should have NEVER said
(1) “crusade”
(2) “God told me to”.

Mostly lost on Americans at the time,
but quickly translated into many languages,
and top story news worldwide.

Nothing like a leader of a large western nation
telling the Middle East
that (translation(s))
Christian Holy War is coming.



“Nuke the site from orbit…it’s the only way to be sure.”

😡  🇺🇸 


Joe did that.


From what I’ve read Al-Qaeda, and others, have been moving freely in A’stan for more than 20 years.
