Now that the United States has completed its withdrawal from Afghanistan, the Biden Administration is eager to downplay the risks of an al-Qaeda resurgence coming from the country. But the American people are keenly aware that the consequences of an American departure from Afghanistan makes them less safe.
According to a new TIPP Insights Poll, 47% of Americans believe America will be more threatened by al-Qaeda now that America has left Afghanistan. Only 14% think America will be less at risk. 26% think that the country faces the same level of threat. 13% weren't sure how the pullout affects the risk to al-Qaeda.
