CIA Chief Just Confirmed "War on Terror" Has Created A Lot More Terrorists
Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan said Thursday that, years into the United States’ fight against the Islamic State, the terrorist group’s reach and power have not been diminished and that it has even more fighters than al-Qaeda had at its height.
Speaking to the Senate Intelligence Committee, Brennan said, “Unfortunately, despite all our progress against ISIL on the battlefield and in the financial realm, our efforts have not reduced the group’s terrorism capability and global reach. The resources needed for terrorism are very modest, and the group would have to suffer even heavier losses of territory, manpower, and money for its terrorist capacity to decline significantly.”
He also said the group is still “a formidable adversary,” adding, “The branch in Libya is probably the most developed and the most dangerous.”
He also projected that it “will intensify its global terror campaign to maintain its dominance of the global terrorism agenda.”
