A growing clutch of lawmakers from both sides of the aisle is publicly countering the Obama administration's portrayal of al Qaeda as an organization on the run, saying that an evolving network of the terrorist group's affiliates now may pose as grave a threat to the U.S. as its predecessor did a decade ago.

Accordingly, our current president, Barack Obama, has decided to climb down from the tiger, with the certain consequence that it will run wild again.
They loom over him, brandishing their weapons, their gaze steady. The sculptor can feel the presence of the heroes he honors in clay and bronze, U.S. Navy SEALs all. And all of them gone.
