Jones the NSA  declared al Qaeda  to be dead and defeated. He  said that al Qaeda elements in Afghanistan had no ability to launch attacks on the United States or its allies.

If al Qaeda in Afghanistan what is the U.S. role and mission in Afghanistan? The almost 70,000 American troops are doing what?
