Washington, DC – Intelligence officials recently leaked portions of a classified document that estimates the war in Iraq jeopardizes some U-S anti-terrorism efforts. To counter that, the Bush administration released other parts of the report, detailing how the U-S is seriously damaging al-Qa'ida. From Capitol Hill, Chad Pergram asked Alabama lawmakers about whether American efforts overseas could incite Iraqis and radicalized Muslims who aim to harm the United States. He filed this report just before last week's national elections.
