but based on what is available in reliable press outlets, it appears that our intelligence agencies no longer view al qaeda as a major threat. all of the recent attacks as well as foiled attempts at attacks were carried out by other better equipped and more efficient groups who appear to be mostly independent from (if nominally affiliated with) al qaeda. this was really symbolic closure for the US but in all likelihood will have zero impact on our security.
They found what seems to be a massive amount of intel. Hard drives, memory sticks, cd's, etc. That certainly impacts our security.
