‘Heightened Terrorism Alert’ issued following killing of al-Qaida’s al-Zawahri
Karah Rucker: THE KILLING OF AL QAEDA’S LEADER ALMAN AL-ZAWAHRI GAVE THE UNITED STATES A VICTORY.
BUT NOW THE U.S. IS WARNING OPPORTUNITIES OF RETALIATION COULD BE SAUGHT BY TERRORIST GROUPS.
THE STATE DEPARTMENT ISSUING A “HEIGHTENED TERRORISM ALERT” ASKING U.S. CITIZENS TO MAINTAIN A HIGH LEVEL OF VIGILANCE.
SPECIFICALLY FOR THOSE TRAVELING ABROAD.
SINCE THE U.S. LEFT AFGHANISTAN…A GROWING AL QAEDA PRESENCE HAS EMERGED.
BUT AN AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE U.S. AND TALIBAN GOVERNMENT PROHIBITS THE HOUSING AND PROTECTION OF TERRORISTS.
NOW LEAVING A SENSE OF DISTRUST AFTER ZAWAHRI WAS FOUND IN THEIR REGION AND KILLED.
John Kirby | White House National Security Council: “They can comply with their agreement under the Doha Agreement, comply with their commitments on the Doha Agreement, or they can choose to keep going down a different path. And if they go down a different path, it’s going to lead to consequences, not just from the United States, but from the international community.”
