Report Claims Iraq War Has Spurred Rise In Fundamentalism

The White House isn't saying much about an intelligence report that reportedly says the Iraq war has increased, rather than decreased, the threat of terrorism against the U-S.

A White House spokesman says, "We don't comment on classified documents," but adds that the published accounts of the report do not represent "the complete document."

An intelligence official confirms, though, that the assessment of the war's impact on terror reflects a consensus view of the 16 U-S spy agencies. It found that the war has helped create a new generation of Islamic radicalism.
