Bill Gertz of the Washington Times reports on George Tenet’s speech yesterday on progress against al Qaeda. Tenet said that more than one-third of al Qaeda’s known leadership has been killed or captured, with approximately 3,000 al Qaeda members “detained” in various countries. Many more, of course, have been killed in Afghanistan and elsewhere. Tenet included bin Laden and Zawahiri among those “at large,” consistent with the Administration’s position that recent audio tapes purporting to be by both men are authentic. Personally, I doubt it. But time will tell.
