Obviously revealing only part of top secret report of the intelligence is wrong and is done for 'unrelated' reasons. President Karzai as well as president Bush are right that the Islamic terrorism uprising wave started at early as the beginning of 1990’s and that it is far much wider phenomenon than the Islamic terrorists that are involved in the war in Iraq. Osama Bin laden started building the al Qaida Islamic terrorists organization during 1990’s with his own family wealth by supporting the poor Islamic population in Afghanistan and building Madrassas for training and brainwashing young generation to become suicide bombers. However, suicide bombers started blowing up buses in Israel after that the Clinton’s summit at Sinai with Arafat and Barak at 2000 did not bring any positive results. Saddam supported the families of the suicide bombers in Gaza and West bank with awarding money to the families of their families. Hezbollah Islamic terrorists in Lebanon were building their terrorists’‘empire’ in Lebanon with 20,000 missile since 2000 and until today by the Iranian revenues from the oil sales, after PM Barak ordered the Israeli army to leave Lebanon. US is in the middle of a brutal war against the Islamic terrorists in Iraq that flow to Iraq after finishing their training in the Madrassas in adjacent countries, such as Saudi Arabia, Syria and Iran. Therefore, it is clear that it is a war that will takes some undefined time against Islamic terrorism that therefore required more US soldiers in order to come victorious at the end of the war. It is a vicious war against a new Islamic dynamics of expansion all over the world. It is definitely new trend of Islamic extremism that intensified during the recent year or so, since the elections in Iran that brought Ahmadinajad to power, and which is getting stronger and stronger everyday. The new wave of attacks of the Islamic terrorists in the Middle East and elsewhere comes from the new generation that just came out of the Madrassas in Islamic countries such as Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia. These young fanatic Muslims were taught to hate the world and were brainwashed to destroy it, so that new Islamic controlled world will be built on its ruins. These suicide bombers believe that they should die and leave this world as soon as they can become martyrs, in order to go to a different Islamic world where they will get 72 virgins…How sick and pathetic is that…?

State secrets you say. Any one with a single neuron left working would have been able to figure out you go killing innocent people and their families are going to get angry. Then they want revenege and at the moment the best revenge in Iraq is to join the terrorist. Republicans what they think is a state secret the rest of us think is common sense.

Bush lies. It's that simple.

When US Forces leave Iraq where will all the relatives of the accidental casualties of war (which had nothing to do with neither 9-11 nor terrorism itself) turn their heads looking for revenge?

They are occupied now but ...

MUUUUUUAAAAHHHHHHHHHH hahahaha - Suck it UP Dems!! & IN YOUR FACE! Al Qaeda is SHAKING IN THEIR BOOTS!

The letter, found in the headquarters of Al Qaeda's leader in Iraq, Abu-Musab al-Zarqawi, after he was killed on June 7, was sent to Zarqawi by a senior Al Qaeda leader who signs his name simply "Atiyah." He complains that Al Qaeda is weak both in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region and in Iraq.

A former jihadist who fought in Algeria in the 1990s, Atiyah appears from the text to be speaking for Al Qaeda's Shura Council — the group's decision-making panel chaired by Osama bin Laden. In the letter, he sharply criticizes Zarqawi's leadership, saying he alienated key allies necessary for the implementation of jihad in Iraq.

"Know that we, like all the Mujahidin, are still weak," he wrote in the letter dated December 11, 2005. "We are in the stage of weakness and a state of paucity. We have not yet reached a level of stability. We have no alternative but to not squander any element of the foundations of strength, or any helper or supporter."

That assessment from Al Qaeda is in stark contrast to the key findings of a declassified national intelligence assessment released to the public by President Bush yesterday. While the National Intelligence Estimate says America has disrupted Al Qaeda's global leadership, it cautions, "Although we cannot measure the extent of the spread with precision, a large body of all-source reporting indicates that activists identifying themselves as jihadists, although a small percentage of Muslims, are increasing in both number and geographic dispersion."

OHHHHHHH YEAHHHHH! Baby!

"For the last month, Democrats have sought to portray the Iraq war as a key failure in the wider war on terror. To that end, Democratic leaders yesterday urged the White House to release all 30 pages of the NIE. The calls for declassification have also been joined by Senator Roberts, the Republican chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence who hails from Kansas.

The letter from Atiyah dated December 2005 reflects Al Qaeda leadership's unease about Zarqawi's Iraq strategy. For example, Atiyah shares his experience as a jihad leader of the failed Armed Islamic Group in Algeria and warns that the same fate could befall Al Qaeda in Iraq. Atiyah repeatedly urges Zarqawi to overlook infractions from other senior Sunni religious clerics, while admitting that the Sunni clerics and not Al Qaeda are the real leaders of Iraq's Sunni Muslim community. "The long and short of the matter is that the Islamic theologians are the keys to the Muslim community and they are its leaders," he writes. "This is the way it is, whether you like it or not."

I do not hear the democrats screaming for an investigation on who did the leaking like they did with Val Plame. Now that the FULL text has been released, it show's the Dem's for the fools they are. What won't they do to win an election? P.s. Slick Willie is not taking his med's, me thinks he protest to much. Once again, they smell failure, and are freaking. P.s.s Osama would like it if the Dem's could leak troop movements and battalion strenths next. He will save ya a virgin or two {I know Slick Willie likes that}.

What we need is more infighting, name calling and torture. What a wonderful pile of horse poop drawing all the flies to the feast thanks to the God talker/ decider and his stooges. I don't know if we will survive this nightmare.
