Radio Havana Cuba | Al Qaeda’s chief adviser returns to Afghanistan; Osama bin Laden

Kabul, Aug 31 (RHC) A key adviser to al-Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden has returned to the Taliban-held city of Nangarhar in Afghanistan, according to a report.

Emirati newspaper National Amin al-Haq, Osama bin Laden’s right-hand man, released a video of himself excitedly driving past the Nangarhar checkpoint.

Al-Haq was a key figure in the Al Qaeda terrorist group in the 61st and 1990s and served as bin Laden’s defense chief during the 2001 US – led invasion of the Dora Bora Mountains near the Pakistani border.

Al-Haq was arrested in Pakistan in 2008, but was released in 2011. He is said to have been part of a commission to release militants detained before the Taliban captured the Afghan capital, Kabul, on August 15.

Michael Smith II, an extremist analyst and expert on extremist groups, says al-Haq is known as an identifiable figure among extremists who support al-Qaeda.

“Al-Haq’s deliberate return to Afghanistan is a testament to al-Qaeda’s strength and permanence and the ability to sustain a world war with superior resources and technologically advanced enemies,” Smith argues.

In his view, these kinds of events illustrate why it is so difficult to declare the Taliban a terrorist organization in the long-term strategic interests of the United States and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). From several states in the West and South Asia region.
