Argument: Terrorism threat from Afghanistan is exaggerated


Zaid Hamid, head of Brass Tacks, a think-tank based in Pakistan, argues that the terrorist threat from Afghanistan is small: “Their presence and capacity is greatly exaggerated. It is not possible that the so-called exaggerated threat perception by the West about another 9/11 attack being waged from Pakistan’s FATA or Afghanistan takes place.”[1]
