CIA: Bush's War Increases Future Threat of Terrorism

Iraq is now a terrorist training ground, said the CIA in a now widely-disseminated classified assessment from last month.

Citing that report, Reuters reported that Iraqi and international insurgents are "developing a broad range of deadly skills" which will present a threat to other nations in coming years.

Iraq is providing "better-trained Islamic terrorists than the 1980s Afghanistan war that gave rise to Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda," said a U.S. counterterrorism official said on Wednesday, according to Reuters.
