Head of Intelligence Directorate United States Department of Defense Lieutenant General Scott Berrier did not rule out that the terrorist organization Al Qaeda (banned in the Russian Federation – ed. note) will be able to restore its potential and carry out new terrorist attacks in the United States in the near future. “It is currently estimated that Al Qaeda is likely to take one or two years,” Berrier was quoted as saying by the New York Times.
He added that after the organization would be able to at least threaten the United States … Berrier therefore recommended to the intelligence community to renew its intelligence gathering capabilities in Afghanistan in order to monitor the group's activities.
