Not much attention has been paid to al Qaeda lately, but that doesn’t mean the terrorist organization isn’t planning major attacks against the West. They’ve just been overshadowed by ISIS.
ISIS was once the minor terrorist organization in the Middle East.

But Obama’s disinterest and underestimation of ISIS allowed them to overtake al Qaeda as the predominant force of terror in Iraq and Libya. Ever since, they’ve attacked western targets with stunning regularity.
