Bush's Iraq War "has made the the overall terrorism problem worse"

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Not only did Bush ignore the terror threat prior to 9/11 as Bill Clinton pointed out to Fox and John's post below demonstrates, the American intelligence community is now saying that Bush has made the terror situation worse because of the war in Iraq.

Bush has been on a full-scale campaign to link Iraq to the war on terror. Looks like he's got a point, but not the way he wants people to think. Bush's Iraq War has made the terror situation much worse:

A stark assessment of terrorism trends by American intelligence agencies has found that the 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.
Bush wants to campaign on terror this year. Let him. By going to Iraq, Bush has been the biggest recruiter for terrorists. He's made the world less safe:
The intelligence estimate, completed in April, is the first formal appraisal of global terrorism by United States intelligence agencies since the Iraq war began, and represents a consensus view of the 16 disparate spy services inside government. Titled Â?Trends in Global Terrorism: Implications for the United States,Â?Â? it asserts that Islamic radicalism, rather than being in retreat, has metastasized and spread across the globe.

An opening section of the report, Â?Indicators of the Spread of the Global Jihadist Movement,Â? cites the Iraq war as a reason for the diffusion of jihad ideology.

The report Â?says that the Iraq war has made the overall terrorism problem worse,Â? said one American intelligence official.
Anything Bush says about terror means nothing. His own government says he's made it worse. Now, we need to hold Bush and the GOP accountable for this record.
