This report examines Al Qaeda’s role in international terrorism. U.S. and allied operations over the past several years have largely pushed Al Qaeda out of Afghanistan and Iraq. Many of those fighters traveled to the tribal region on the Pakistani side of the border with Afghanistan. But ongoing U.S. and Pakistani military and intelligence operations there have made it an increasingly inhospitable place for Al Qaeda. Consequently, hundreds -- or perhaps even thousands -- of fighters have gone elsewhere: North Africa, Southeast Asia, and perhaps most importantly in Yemen and Somalia. These groups may have only an informal connection with Al Qaeda’s leadership in Pakistan, but they often share common goals. Contents of this report: (1) Al Qaeda Reconstituted: Background; A Continuing Threat in Pakistan; (2) Yemen: Exploiting Weaknesses: A Multifaceted Threat to U.S. Interests; Al Qaeda Transformation Underway in Yemen; A History of Violence and Extremism; (3) Somalia: Failure Breeds Extremism: Alliance or Not, a Specific Threat to Americans Exists; State Failure Offers Further Opportunities for Terrorists; (4) Conclusion: No Direct Connection Between al-Shabab and Somali Pirates.
