A somewhat scary story from [1] FDD:

An article by Kevin Whitelaw in US News & World report says that al Qaeda’s top leaders, once on the run, have regrouped

U.S. intelligence agencies have completely revised their assessment of al Qaeda the article says.

And they have reached an alarming conclusion: Bin Laden has a safe-haven in Pakistan and he may be stronger than ever.

The shift is dramatic. Two years ago, the head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, described al Qaeda leaders to Congress as battered and isolated.

Now, the DIA says, “Al Qaeda retains the ability to organize complex, mass-casualty attacks and inspire others,”

“Al Qaeda has consistently recovered from losses of senior leadership.”
