New Al Qaeda Leader is Based in Iran, Say UN and US

Via The Algemeiner: Iran has provided the base for the new leader of the Al Qaeda Islamist terror organization, according to separate assessments released this week by the UN and the United States.

A UN report issued on Wednesday described Seif al-Adel — a a former Egyptian intelligence officer with a $10 million bounty on his head — as the “uncontested” leader of Al Qaeda, whose influence since the September 11, 2001 atrocities in New York and Washington, DC, has waned as other terror groups such as ISIS have emerged in the Middle East.
