“Al Qaeda leaders are dodging so many missiles in Pakistan’s tribal areas they can no longer plot spectacular attacks on U.S. soil, CIA Director Leon Panetta said Wednesday.

‘Those operations are seriously disrupting Al Qaeda,’ Panetta told the Washington Post. ‘We really do have them on the run.’

Panetta was the latest chest-thumping Obama adviser to boast that Osama Bin Laden and his minions can’t now pull off a complex, Sept. 11-style attack.

Officials began making that claim after the failed Christmas air bombing by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab.”
