ABC News' Yunji de Nies reports: de Nies:  Robert, yesterday in his speech the president said that, "Because of our efforts, Al Qaida and its allies have lost operational capability."  What did he mean by that?  Does he mean that they've lost the — or "capacity" rather — does he mean that they've lost the capacity to strike? GIBBS:  I'm not going to get into discussing intelligence, but I think we have, as I was talking about with Jennifer, made, through cooperation with the Pakistanis, great progress in dealing with and downgrading and degrading Al Qaida. But I'm not going to get much further into intelligence matters.
    de Nies:  And the other question I think all of us want to know, I mean, are they going to discuss those numbers today at all in this meeting?     GIBBS:  I doubt it.  But I'll have a better sense, obviously, when the — the meeting's over.  But that's not — not that I'm aware of it's on the docket today. –Yunji de Nies
