Point being, it goes back to others making attacks after AQ was unable to operate as a force under Bush Junior.....wherein they reconstructed themselves and grew in numbers under BO and his Team Policy and the way they dealt with Iraq in concept, and in reality. Then they became ISIL and now ISIS or Islamic State.
This was AQ and our Enemy. Once BO dropped the ball on the SOFA.....he rolled up most intel that we had going in Iraq.
Now the Islamic State is in Africa with a whole new city to play with. Surrounded by those that will join with them. They have expanded to Asia and they are growing and taking in more fighters every week.
