Declassifying the NIE

President Bush has declassified only four pages of a National Intelligence Estimate suggesting that the Iraq War is a recruiting boon for terrorists:

"The Iraq conflict has become the cause celebre for jihadists, breeding resentment of US involvement in the Muslim world and cultivating the global jihadist movement."

It also suggests that capturing or killing key leaders like Osama bin Laden could cause the worldwide terrorist movement to splinter -- posing less of a threat to the US. (NIE)
