Bleak Outlook for the Terror War

Foreign Affairs is out with it first 'Terrorism Index.'

The Council on Foreign Relations publishes the journal and found a surprising consensus among the bipartisan experts surveyed. This from the Toronto Star:

"Some 86 per cent of them said the world has grown more, not less, dangerous, despite President George W. Bush's claims that the U.S. is winning the war on terror.

The main reasons for the decline in security, they said, were the war in Iraq, the detention of terror suspects in Guantanamo Bay, U.S. policy towards Iran and U.S. energy policy."
The Star reports that the respondents included a former Scretary of State and past Directors of the CIA and National Security Agency. (Toronto Star/Foreign Affairs)
