    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 newspaper.

    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
    politicians.

    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.
