BBC NEWS | Americas | Iraq war fuels terror – US report
The Iraq conflict has become a “cause celebre” for Islamic militants worldwide, declassified parts of a US intelligence report say.
It has been “cultivating supporters for the global jihadist movement,” the National Intelligence Estimate says.
President George W Bush promised to release parts of the report following earlier leaks to the US media.
Mr Bush said he strongly disagreed with his opponents who thought “going into Iraq was a mistake”.
Key parts of the report however, confirmed the media leaks.
The Iraq conflict had bred “a deep resentment of US involvement in the Muslim world, the report said.
“Perceived jihadist success there would inspire more fighters to continue the struggle elsewhere,” it said.
“Should jihadists leaving Iraq perceive themselves, and be perceived, to have failed, we judge fewer fighters will be inspired to carry on the fight.”
The conclusions will be uncomfortable reading for the Bush administration, says the BBC’s Adam Brookes in Washington.
