Clinton told CNN’s State of the Union that there is a continuing threat from Al-Qaeda on the American people and US officials were only able to contain so far since “over the last six months, we have seen attacks foiled, people arrested and charged, so that you have to be constantly vigilant. And that is what everybody working in this government at all levels attempts to do”.
She noted that there is “nothing new” about Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden’s tape claiming responsibility for the airline bombing attempt over Detroit last Christmas adding that “it is really important for people to just go along with their daily lives. you cannot be deterred or discouraged or fearful about what is happening and we just have to do everything we can to keep America safe”.
Clinton said it is “very difficult to make that kind of assessment” about Al-Qaeda threat alert on the American soil since last year describing Al-Qaeda members as “a very committed, clever, diabolical group of terrorists who are always looking for weaknesses and openings”.
“I do not see them as stronger, I see they are more creative, more flexible, more agile. They evolve”, she added while saying “the biggest nightmare that any of us have is that one of these terrorist member organizations within this syndicate of terror will get their hands on a weapon of mass destruction”.
