Obama's Secret: Only 100 al Qaeda Now in Afghanistan

What they mean to say is, only 100 CIA mercenaries left in Afghanistan. But I digress. Bin Laden is dead. Even Limbaugh, now that a democrat is in office and he's free to tell the truth sometimes, admits bin Laden is dead. So what are we there for? To fight the "Taliban" - another CIA creation that had nothing to do with 9-11, even if you're comatose and believe the official narrative? No, we're there to rake in profits for the banks that fund this war and launder the money from Afghanistan's record opium trade, and we'll be there until they've sapped every ounce of political will from the American people and we're on the verge of revolt. Which is exactly how they ran Vietnam.

    With New Surge, One Thousand U.S. Soldiers and $300 Million for Every One al Qaeda Fighter

    ABC News -

    As he justified sending 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan at a cost of $30 billion a year, President Barack Obama's description Tuesday of the al Qaeda "cancer" in that country left out one key fact: U.S. intelligence officials have concluded there are only about 100 al Qaeda fighters in the entire country.

    A senior U.S. intelligence official told ABCNews.com the approximate estimate of 100 al Qaeda members left in Afghanistan reflects the conclusion of American intelligence agencies and the Defense Department. The relatively small number was part of the intelligence passed on to the White House as President Obama conducted his deliberations.

    President Obama made only a vague reference to the size of the al Qaeda presence in his speech at West Point, when he said, "al Qaeda has not reemerged in Afghanistan in the same number as before 9/11, but they retain their safe havens along the border."

    A spokesperson at the White House's National Security Council, Chris Hensman, said he could not comment on intelligence matters.
