Afghanistan threat: The rising threat of Al-Qaeda – will they hit back at US in a year?

The US responded by demanding the Taliban, who were in control of Afghanistan at the time, hand over Osama Bin Laden, the leader of Al-Qaeda.

When they refused the US moved troops in to remove the Taliban and vowed to eliminate the terrorist threat in the country.

Now fears are growing that Afghanistan could once again become a breeding ground for terrorist organisations.

Speaking to Congress on September 28, top US General Mark Milley warned the Taliban remains a terror organisation.
