Al-Qaeda has a new home base. It is the Islamic Republic of #Iran. We ignore this Iran/al-Qaeda nexus at our own peril.

Al-Qaeda has had a relationship with Iran for nearly three decades.
Pompeo:
-#Iran helped al-Qaeda plan the 9/11 attacks.
-Al Qaeda No .2 Abu Mohammed al-Masri was killed in Tehran in August 2020.
-Iran's Intelligence Ministry provides logistical support to al-Qaeda.
-Zawahiri's deputies are living there now very comfortably.
#UPDATE
U.S. imposes counter terrorism sanctions on five people tied to #Iran, designating them each as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT).
