American ambassador to Kabul, Ryan Crocker informed that al-Qaeda has returned to the war-torn country - Afghanistan and is planning to launch massive terror attacks after making Afghanistan their base.
"Al-Qaeda is still present in Afghanistan. If the West decides that 10 years in Afghanistan is too long then they will be back, and the next time it will not be New York or Washington, it will be another big Western city," said Crocker.
Talking about US's early operations to root out terrorism from Afghanistan and other countries, Crocker said, "We have killed all the slow and stupid ones. But that means the ones that are left are totally dedicated."
"We (US) think we've won a campaign before our adversaries have even started to fight. They (al-Qaeda) have patience, and they know that we are short on that," added Crocker.
