Left wing talking point: Al Qaeda only has 100 members left in Afghanistan. Hmmmmmm....I wonder where they all went? They certainly didn't lay down their arms and vanish into the woodwork like the left wingers would have you believe. Al qaeda: estimated number of current members and associates stands at 5000+!!!! (Global Security.org estimate) They all went to YEMEN!!! Al Qaeda's spiritual homeland!!!! There's a current estimate of membership in AQAP at 1000+ members reported by CSM. Now.... tell me the Taliban and Al Qaeda aren't working together. Man...when the left wing nuts start a talking point they sure do end up with egg on their face EVERY SINGLE TIME!!!!!!
