Al Qaeda weak but dangerous, US official says
Counterterrorism chief warns that ‘we can’t rest’
The president’s chief counterterrorism adviser said Sunday there is no indication Al Qaeda is planning a terrorist attack on the one-year anniversary of the killing of Osama bin Laden. John Brennan argued Al Qaeda’s capability “has been degraded significantly’’ since the death of its leader. Still, Brennan cautioned that “we can’t rest,’’ and said the Department of Homeland Security is particularly concerned about al Qaeda’s presence in Yemen.
