al Qaeda less than 100 in Afghanistan; The Pakistan Taliban “on the run”, so now comes Reason #20 to stay and fight, the “Lashkar-e-Taiba”; and March 20 March on Washington, sign up here

“Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT): Bad company”, by Bill Roggio at The Long War Journal, reports on the House Subcommittee on the Middle East and South Asia’s hearings on LeT where Committee Chair Gary Ackerman says “…We need to take this threat very, very seriously. The LeT is a deadly serious group of fanatics. They are well financed, ambitious, and most disturbingly, both tolerated by, and connected to, the Pakistani military. Read the full opening remarks here.

Ed Note: So now we have to eliminate the LeT from Pakistan, this will now be our new “Goal”? So what terrorist group will be next? Somalia Taliban? We all ready are after them. How about Yemeni? Well, fighting terrorism is now the reason to forever have our military fighting local ‘insurgents’ in many countries around the world. Can you guess how many “Terrorist Organizations” are listed at the Department of State? Here’s a list, maybe it is not complete (taken from post at Wikipedia entitled “U.S State Department list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations”, read more information here). Think we’ll be going to Israel and attacking the Kahane Chai (Kach) (Israel) terrorist group?
