Al-Qaeda hints at talks with US
Al-Qaeda’s second-in-command has suggested the US will be forced to talk to al-Qaeda if it wants to extricate itself from Iraq and Afghanistan.
Speaking in a video aired on al-Jazeera TV, Ayman al-Zawahiri said the US was not talking to “the real powers” in the region and its negotiations would fail.
He also said al-Qaeda would continue to strike on US soil so long as Muslims came under attack in the Islamic world.
Analysts say this may be the first time al-Qaeda has hinted at talks.
Zawahiri must have been inspired by Hanoi John Kerry, Bill Nelson, and Chris Dodd’s meeting or planed meetings with with Syrian President Assad. Kerry does have a history of meeting with our nations enemy.
