The CIA said they are more dangerous today to America's interest than in 2008 but they are probably not able to launch a terrorist attack from Yemen upon the U.S. But they can with Muslim Americans and immigrants already living in America. And that's what we have been seeing.
    The thing is by his actions the Arabs think he is weak. They test him and he backs down. Because of him they think our country is a paper tiger. In all of our history we have never been viewed this way by any country,

    It's just not the Arabs that think Obama is weak, most of the world leaders think Obama is weak including Putin.

    The reason Al Qaeda declared war on America was because we had troops stationed in Saudi Arabia.

    The reason Osmama bin Laden thought he could attack America on it's own soil and get away with it was because he looked at America when Clinton was POTUS as being a paper tiger.

    From Osama's bin Ladens first Fatwa:

    >" But your most disgraceful case was in Somalia; where- after vigorous propaganda about the power of the USA and its post cold war leadership of the new world order- you moved tens of thousands of international force, including twenty eight thousands American solders into Somalia. However, when tens of your solders were killed in minor battles and one American Pilot was dragged in the streets of Mogadishu you left the area carrying disappointment, humiliation, defeat and your dead with you. Clinton appeared in front of the whole world threatening and promising revenge , but these threats were merely a preparation for withdrawal. You have been disgraced by Allah and you withdrew; the extent of your impotence and weaknesses became very clear. It was a pleasure for the "heart" of every Muslim and a remedy to the "chests" of believing nations to see you defeated in the three Islamic cities of Beirut , Aden and Mogadishu..."< Bin Laden's Fatwa | PBS NewsHour | Aug. 23, 1996 | PBS

    Doesn't matter. Global terrorism doesn't work in a vertical hierarchy. We've killed their #2 something like 21 times. That's a bad job to have.

    terrorist organization's can only succeed in getting recruits if they dehumanize their intended enemy and make it appear to their potential recruit that the united states is to blame for all of the problems in the world.

    which is why the best way to win againist a terrorist orginization is to make them radical and out of touch with average people.

    Okay, how do we do that without radicalizing the average person?

    Pakistan isn't going well.

    that is because we are the ones doing the killing, which then feed's into the propaganda being created by terrorist organizations. i say if the terrorists are going to use suicide bombs againist us, we should be help trying to rebuild and protect the people, somthing that terrorists bomb's fail to do. when american soldiers are getting killed while helping people to rebuild their homes and their lives, actually doing things that benefit the people, do you really think that the average person would support a orginizations that sends suicide bombers to blow up targets of opportunity?

    Osama bin Laden believed if President G.W. Bush was anything like former President Clinton, that America's response after the 9/11/01 attacks would be no more than maybe launching a hundred Tomahawk cruise missiles and that would be it. America a paper tiger, unwilling to put boots on the ground.

    Clinton may had the talk but not the walk. Al Qaeda found out that Bush just did not have the talk but also the walk. Bush invaded Afghanistan ! #### ! he even put boots on the ground and invaded Iraq.

    This scared our enemies throughout the world, they were in awe with Bush. Even Omar Gaddafi destroyed his WMD's in 2003 and came on board as an ally of the USA and it's war against Al Qaeda. Who do you think took over enhanced interrogations for the CIA ?

    I think Obama has already sent out the message, America has returned to the paper tiger era with UAV (drone) strikes and even with Syria, threats of using Tomahawk cruise missiles, Clinton's weapon of choice.
