Take heart, though Don, AQ is still doing OK in Yemen and those camps they had
in Afghanistan trained a whole lot of people who are still at large all over the

This political cartoon is crap, if the details I read in the news are true: there are fewer than 200 members of Al-Qaeda left today. It is certainly NOT a ferocious dragon pissed off at the lopping-off of it’s leader/tail. An actual ferocious and pissed-off dragon would have struck back after it’s tail/leader was lopped off. Al-Qaeda has done nothing in the year since Bin Laden was killed.
