After the withdrawal from Afghanistan, the US intelligence agency CIA was planning to focus on cyber attacks from countries like Russia-China rather than counter-terrorism operations. But the Kabul blasts have ruined it.
According to intelligence officials, the chances of the agency turning to complex terrorist missions, in the long run, have increased.
