Following Joe Biden’s disastrous and humiliating retreat from Afghanistan thus leaving the country into the grips of Taliban jihadists, global terror outfit Al Qaeda is back to its old tricks in Afghan soil. According to media reports, the terrorist group is running training camps inside madrassas in Afghanistan, while it is generating hundreds of millions of dollars each week by sharing profits of the illicit drug trade with Taliban. With this cash, Al Qaeda is intensifying its recruitment and terrorist plots in the world, particularly the Western nations.
