Tenet Says Dangers to U.S. Are at Least as Great as a Year Ago

George J. Tenet, director of central intelligence, said Tuesday that the world was at least as 'fraught with dangers for American interests' as it was a year ago, despite the toppling of Saddam Hussein's government in Iraq and successes in dismantling the leadership of Al Qaeda.

Most worrying, Mr. Tenet said, the radical anti-American sentiments and destructive expertise used by Al Qaeda have spread to other Sunni Muslim extremists who are behind a 'next wave' of terrorism that will endure 'for the foreseeable future with or without Al Qaeda in the picture.'

'People who say that this is exaggerated don't look at the same world that I look at,' Mr. Tenet told the Senate Intelligence Committee as he presented a stark annual report on the threats that face the United States around the world. The broader terrorist threat, he said, 'is not going away any time soon.'



I seem to remmber Howard Dean saying something quite similar and getting pilloried for it.
