In April, President Bush received the National Intelligence Estimate, which “represents a consensus view of the 16 separate spy services inside government.” NIEs are “the most authoritative documents that the intelligence community produces…and are approved by John D. Negroponte, director of national intelligence.”

Here’s what the NIE said, according to the New York Times:

[T]he American invasion and occupation of Iraq has helped spawn a new generation of Islamic radicalism and that the overall terrorist threat has grown since the Sept. 11 attacks…The report “says that the Iraq war has made the overall terrorism problem worse,” said one American intelligence official.

On August 21, President Bush held a press conference and told the American people the exact opposite. Click on Pic to See Video:

    That doesn’t consider the impact on the US and how many more Americans hate Bush and everything he stands for.

  2. Bill Says:

    The problem with that report in the New York Times is that it only talked about one page of the report. What they didn’t publish is the rest of the report that says that the war in Iraq is why we have not had other attacks in the US and it is also killing the morale in the terrorists for continuing their fight.

  3. LA Says:

    If the NYT published information regarding the first page, how is it that you know what the rest of the report says?
