Now Al-Qaida Is A Worse Threat

But Obama claimed he won the war on terror.

The recent kidnapping of more than 300 Nigerian women students by Boko Haram with the threat of selling them, the rise of al-Shabaab in Somalia and the sudden prominence of the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria is symptomatic of a new and disturbing trend, according to analysts.

Along with this rise of new transnational terrorist groups in the Middle East and Africa is the morphing of al-Qaida into new franchises that operate independently from the central leadership in Pakistan under Ayman al-Zawahiri.

They include al-Qaida in the Arab Peninsula, or AQAP, and al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, or AQIM.

AQIM is splitting into two separate operations in its base country, Algeria, in the north and south, making any anti-terrorism effort in an already difficult region more challenging.

ISIS, which originated as al-Qaida in Iraq, under the late terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, believes in strict Islamic law. It is so violent that even al-Qaida central has disassociated itself with it.

Nevertheless, it has been able to attract some 2,100 foreign fighters, including some from the United States.
