Clapper: Al-Qaeda Not Really 'On the Run'

Despite President Obama's claim that "Al-Qaeda is on the run," the Director of National Intelligence testified on Wednesday he was unable to say the terror threat "is any less" than it was ten years ago. 

James Clapper explained that Al-Qaeda is probably a larger threat than ever because the terror group is "much more globally dispersed" and because of intelligence leaks by Edward Snowden.  Clapper made his statements before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

(Didn't Clapper lie to Congress? Does anyone believe what he says when he testifies under oath?)

In further testimony Clapper stated that NSA leaker Edward Snowden caused "profound damage," and terrorists are "going to school" on U.S. surveillance methods.
