Special report: Is Al Qaeda in pieces?

Interesting read from The Independent. Just goes to show that “al Qeada” was on it’s last legs before 9/11 and it’s only the response from the Bush admin that has kept it alive, apparently 9/11 was to be Bin Ladens last throw of the dice.

Benotman says that Bin Laden tried to placate him with a promise: “I have one more operation, and after that I will quit” — an apparent reference to 11 September. “I can’t call this one back because that would demoralise the whole organisation,” Benotman remembers Bin Laden saying.
