Al Qaeda is also active in Iraq, but it losing its influence.
A stash of Al Qaeda documents, found embedded inside a porn film in Germany (while pornography is of course denounced by the terrorists, anything is fair in war apparently), has revealed that Al Qaeda is now looking for low tech, cheap ways to continue its war on the innocent.
The documents reveal that they are also planning on larger attacks, looking upon the carnage inflicted by Pakistani terrorists in Mumbai on 26/11 as inspiration.
Meanwhile al-Zawahiri has also continued to issue Osama-style videos and audio tapes every now and then. But they have failed to capture the global imagination or garner much media attention.
So one year on al Qaeda remains low and relatively silent. So far. And that's the best that can be said about these madmen with bombs.
