Why al Qaeda Has Become Resurgent

In From The Cold tackles the misunderstood issue:

Is it because of the War in Iraq? No.

Or the Knighting of Salman Rushdie? No.

What about the perceived military failure against the Taliban in Afghanistan? No.

Drum roll, please...

Al Qaida's reconstitution along the Pakistan-Afghan border is a direct result of the disastrous "Waziristan Accords," signed last year between the Islamabad government and pro-Al Qaida groups in the western tribal lands. Implementation of those agreements further eroded Pakistani authority in the region, and allowed terrorists to rebuild the training, support and administrative infrastructure that once existed in neighboring Afghanistan.

Details, details...
