“[Bryant] Viñas changed the way we thought about how al-Qaeda recruits and who al-Qaeda recruits,” says Andrew McCabe, who oversaw the American ex-al-Qaeda member when McCabe was head of FBI counter terrorism. Watch Scott Pelley’s report: “Double Crossed.”

I see Ilhan Omar being attacked in some conservative circles for not denouncing Al Qaeda. Her response was the correct one—she refused to dignify it with an answer. No American Muslim should have to spell out that they're anti-Al Qaeda. It should be the starting presumption

Just like the hateful terrorism of Al Qaeda and ISIS, domestic right-wing terrorism is completely incompatible with our American values. It is a threat to American safety and security, and we must not tolerate it in the United States.

My amendment to S.1 would allow Senators to go on the record about what the United States should be doing in Syria and Afghanistan. ISIS and al Qaeda have yet to be defeated and American national security interests require continued commitment to our missions there.

This is a complete betrayal of the American people, those we lost on 9/11, my brothers and sisters in uniform we’ve lost since, and their families. Every Member of Congress must condemn the President for protecting al-Qaeda.

“Bin Laden and 15 of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 were Saudis. The Saudi royals repeatedly stymied American efforts to crack down on Al Qaeda in the years before 9/11.But they remained our dear friends.” Step Away From the Orb

If you've been wondering what happened to the American weapons sent to Syria—yes, a bunch of them went to the local al-Qaeda affiliate. A lot of grim and previously unreported detail in part two of @shane_bauer's investigation.
