THOUSANDS of FBI agents have rounded up more than 1,300 suspects across
America since September 11, but they have failed to find a single
al-Qaeda cell operating in the United States. Tom Ridge, the Director of
Homeland Security, admitted yesterday that he suspected that there were
active cells in the US, but he could not explain why none had been
caught.

"I think we should assume and we should operate under the notion that
some still are in the United States," he said. 

Security authorities in more than 60 countries have arrested suspects
linked to Osama bin Laden, but none of the hundreds detained has yet
been found to have any links with terrorism. 

Only two of the top 20 most-wanted al-Qaeda suspects are known to have
been caught or killed: Mohammed Atef, third-in-command to Osama bin
Laden, died in a rocket attack on Kabul; and Anas al-Liby, a computer
expert who lived in Manchester and is said to have helped to compile
al-Qaeda’s terrorist training manual, has been arrested. No one in the
American military or intelligence services knows where bin Laden is. 

While the British and other governments accept that many of their young
Muslims travelled to Afghanistan for training in al-Qaeda camps, the
only American accused of following that path is John Walker, "the
American Taleban" who is facing trial in Washington. 

Mr Ridge marked the six-month anniversary of the terrorist attacks on
New York and Washington by announcing that there would be a new national
threat alarm system based on a five-level colour code.
