US has managed to avoid Al Qaeda attack on itself and its allies for the past 7 years - yet they just say AlQaeda has been degraded because Zawahiri is still alive.

And here Rehman Malik says TTP top leadership has been eliminated and yet just yesterday they kidnapped 13 soldiers and beheaded 7. Of course I recall Kayani also saying that the terrorist back has been broken in April 2011.
