Iran Admits Al Qaeda Presence

In what could be a significant development, Iran has admitted that al Qaeda operatives are currently in that country. The U.S. believes that among them is Saif Al Adel, believed to be al Qaeda’s top operational planner. Iran says that the al Qaeda members are “in custody;” American officials suspect that they are functioning freely and in effect are being given safe haven. Given that until now Iran has denied the presence of al Qaeda operatives altogether, the current admission may well be a first step toward apprehending Al Adel and others.
