Report: Al-Qaida eyes Iraq ties for U.S. attack
Top U.S. security agencies highlight ‘persistent and evolving threat’
The terrorist network Al-Qaida will likely leverage its contacts and capabilities in Iraq to mount an attack on U.S. soil, according to a new National Intelligence Estimate on threats to the United States.
The declassified key findings, to be released publicly on Tuesday, were obtained in advance by The Associated Press.
The report lays out a range of dangers — from al-Qaida to Lebanese Hezbollah to non-Muslim radical groups — that pose a –persistent and evolving threat” to the country over the next three years.
More mindless fear mongering, of course. Or released as due to the ongoing Congressional debate over Iraq. Anything anyone does to due to this report is a grab for power.
Unless, of course, an attack is successful. Then someone will be to blame for not protecting us.
Recall all the finger pointing and game playing over the 8/6/01 Presidential Daily Brief.
