‘US has greatly reduced threat of 9/11 repeat from Pak’

Former NCTC director Michael Leiter has said the US has greatly reduced the chance of another 9/11 originating from Pakistan.



Washington: Former National Counter-Terrorism Center (NCTC) director Michael Leiter has said the US has greatly reduced the chance of another 9/11 originating from Pakistan.

"It is not impossible, but very difficult for al Qaeda in Pakistan to launch an attack outside its borders," The Express Tribune quoted Leiter, as saying at the Aspen Security Forum.

Matthew Olsen, the current NCTC director, said the issues with Pakistan are much broader than just counter-terrorism. He added that the country faced political, military and security challenges.
The Aspen Security Forum will feature speakers from current and former US administrations. Ambassadors from Pakistan and Afghanistan are also scheduled to address the forum.
