Iraq war 'made terror threat worse'
The Iraq war has made the threat from terrorism greater, according
to a leaked US intelligence report.
According to The New York Times, an official report says that
Islamic terrorism has grown worldwide since the September 11 attacks
on New York and Washington.
The National Intelligence Estimate, completed in April, also gives
the Iraq war as a reason for the spread of jihadi ideology,
according to the newspaper report.
It is the first formal appraisal of global terrorism by US
intelligence agencies since the war began in March 2003 and
represents a consensus view of the 16 US spy services.
Some of the estimate's conclusions confirm predictions in a January
2003 National Intelligence Council report that said a war in Iraq
might increase support for political Islam worldwide, according to
The National Intelligence Council, the main strategic think tank for
the US intelligence community, is in the early stages of preparing a
new national estimate on Iraq in response to requests from leading
Shamrock's comment: We have been saying this for a long time now.
Understand we do not condone terrorism of any sort, including state
sponsored terrorism. However we believe the US, UK and other are
going about it the wrong way.
