Al Qaeda under "catastrophic stress"


"The al-Qaida terror network is under 'catastrophic stress' but still poses a threat, a U.S. official said in an interview broadcast Thursday.

"Cofer Black, the U.S. ambassador at large for counterterrorism, said some two-thirds of the al-Qaida leadership have been detained or put out of action since the Sept. 11 attacks ? a claim also made by President Bush in Tuesday?s State of the Union address.

"Black told British Broadcasting Corp. radio that al-Qaida has been significantly weakened."
