Making the world safe for terrorists

According to a CIA report, the Iraq insurgency now poses an international threat greater than the formation of the Taliban in the 1980s. Iraq is now said to be an ideal training ground for fighters developing a broad range of deadly skills to include urban car bombings, assassinations, and tightly coordinated conventional attacks on police and military targets. The report, issued by U.S. intelligence itself, underscores the fact that Shrub's War, instead of creating the foundation of Middle East peace, has in fact only increased the threat of terrorism by providing vast lawless areas in the Middle East along with an ideological justification for terrorist recruitment.
