Iraq war is ‘breeding terrorists’

`The Iraq war is a “cause celebre” swelling the ranks of Islamist terrorists, who are likely to grow in numbers for the next five years, a newly declassified US intelligence report has said.

The National Intelligence Estimate, which represents the consensus of the 16 US spy agencies, said the US-led campaign since September 11, 2001, had significantly hurt al Qaeda, but that extermists were nevertheless growing in number across the world.

It said this would lead to “increasing attacks worldwide” for the next five years.’
