Arrest of Bin Laden Son-in-Law Highlights Iran-AQ Connection


Islamist Iran has long harbored Al Qaeda leaders. The arrest of Osama Bin Laden's son-in-law highlights the Iran-AQ connection. Read more.

Appeasement advocates and apologists for the Iranian regime have downplayed or ignored its support for Al Qaeda. Naive reporters have foolishly focused on Islamist theological differences in the face of decades of evidence that these divides have usually been bridged in the interest of defeating common enemies--that is to say, in the interest of destroying the United States, Israel and Western democracy.

Incredibly, 11-and-a-half years after the worst-ever attacks on U.S. soil, we now live in a world in which North Korea can freely threaten the U.S. with nuclear strikes, Iran can dispatch its top nuclear expert to observe an illicit North Korean nuclear weapon test, while accelerating its own nuclear arms program and aiding the organization that attacked the U.S. on 9/11, and that same organization, Al Qaeda--which should have been annihilated on the ground in Afghanistan within days of 9/11 by any and all means necessary--is gaining ground in Africa and the Middle East.

So it goes in March 2012.
