US ‘losing fight against terror’

US policy in the “war on terror” is harshly criticised in a new book by an intelligence official who says the battle against al-Qaeda is being lost.

The author, identified as Anonymous, claims the invasion of Iraq has played into the hands of Osama Bin Laden and has not made America any safer.

Book by C.I.A. Officer Says U.S. Is Losing Fight Against Terror

In the book, the author denounced the American invasion of Iraq as “an avaricious, premeditated unprovoked war against a foe who posed no immediate threat,” and said it would fuel the anti-American sentiments on which Mr. bin Laden and his followers draw. “There is nothing that bin Laden could have hoped for more than the American invasion and occupation of Iraq,” he writes.

The current US Govt. is well known for their infallibility. Why do you hate America? :lol:

Interesting. The guy raises good points but it’s also pretty clear that the CIA let this book out to deflect criticism of its own failings. Where would we be in the War in Terror (and Iraq for that matter) if the CIA hadn’t blown opportunity to catch Khalid Sheikh Mohammed back in 1997 because they had no idea who he was?
