Thanks, Joe! UN report says Al-Qaeda now has ‘safe haven’ in Afghanistan under Taliban

A devastating report has surfaced indicating that al-Qaeda is now operating with “increased freedom of movement” inside Afghanistan following President Joe Biden’s catastrophic withdrawal from the nation.

The Islamic terrorist group responsible for the 9/11 attack in the United States that cost the lives of almost 3,000 Americans appears to have carte blanche from the Taliban inside Afghanistan.

The report detailing the monstrous development was published in May and came from experts who quietly submitted it to the UN Security Council.

“The relationship between the Taliban and Al-Qaeda remains close, with the latter celebrating the former’s success and renewing its pledge of allegiance to [Taliban leader Hibatullah Akhundzada],” the report contends. “Member State assessments thus far suggest that al Qaeda has a safe haven under the Taliban and increased freedom of action. Ayman al-Zawahiri has issued more frequent recorded messages since August, and there is now proof of life for him as recently as February 2022.”

Al-Qaeda is not the only terrorist faction flourishing in Afghanistan since Biden’s withdrawal which cost the lives of 13 American soldiers. ISIS-K “has financial resources and has grown in strength through prison releases and new recruitments.” The Haqqani Network also is described in the report as the “most successful” in garnering favor with the Taliban and the most “influential” of the terrorist groups.

According to the report, al-Qaeda is “pleased with developments in Afghanistan” and the terrorist group has used Biden’s botched withdrawal from the country “to attract new recruits and funding and inspire al Qaeda affiliates globally.”

“Going forward, al Qaeda appears free to pursue its objectives, short of international attacks or other high-profile activity that could embarrass the Taliban or harm their interests,” the report asserts. “These objectives are likely to include recruitment, training, fundraising, and al-Zawahiri’s video communications. It is assessed that al Qaeda is focused on reorganizing itself in the short-to-medium term with the ultimate objective of continuing its idea of global jihad. While al Qaeda is reportedly aware of the need to avoid embarrassing the Taliban, it is noteworthy that when Taliban authorities were pressing to receive humanitarian support from the United Nations, al Qaeda did not soften its tone regarding the United Nations or its future intentions to mount attacks against Western targets.”

According to Liberty One, the Taliban denied the report by the United Nations on Monday proclaiming the presence of foreign fighters in Afghanistan is “unfounded.”

The Department of Defense admitted in a report released in May that Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan likely empowered al-Qaeda.

The report from the department’s inspector general rang alarm bells that terrorism could be on the rise in Afghanistan following the pullout of American forces. It outlined that the United States Central Command predicts the Taliban will “likely loosen its restrictions on Al-Qaeda” within the next year or two. According to the UN, that has ostensibly already happened.

The relaxed rules within the country will likely allow al-Qaeda to have greater freedom to train, travel, and potentially reestablish its capability for external operations. The group has maintained a “low profile” in recent months but all of that could change quickly.

The report also questions the US’ intelligence strategy being used in the country. The Department of Defense has unsurprisingly had a severe loss of human intelligence on the ground following the withdrawal, hindering its capacity to track terrorist targets in Afghanistan.
