Biden says al Qaeda could 'come back' but defends Afghanistan withdrawal on 9/11 anniversary


President Joe Biden said the terrorist group responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks could “come back” now that the United States has fully withdrawn from Afghanistan.

Biden, who visited each of the three crash sites on the attacks’ 20th anniversary, said a surge in militancy from al Qaeda is possible after asserting previously that the group is “gone” from Afghanistan .

“Could al Qaeda come back? Yeah,” Biden told reporters in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, near the site where United Airlines Flight 93 crashed into an empty field on Sept. 11, 2001. “But guess what?
