Assad Questions Existence of al Qaeda

Syrian dictator Bashar Assad expressed doubts about the existence of al Qaeda in an interview published in Kuwait yesterday. “Is there really an entity called Al Qaeda? Was it in Afghanistan? Does it exist now?” Assad asked. He noted that Osama bin Laden “cannot talk on the phone or use the Internet, but he can direct communications to the four corners of the world? This is illogical.” (That’s what Dafydd ab Hugh keeps telling us. Only his point is that Osama no longer exists, not that al Qaeda is imaginary.)
Assad concluded that the permanent solution to terrorism is “social.”
Assad is believed to be positioning himself for a run in the Democratic primaries.
