A Much Better Title than "Bin Laden Determined to Attack United States"

by Ken Houghton

Condi's "history lessons" just keep on coming:
[President George W. Bush] played down media coverage of a US intelligence report called Al-Qaeda Better Positioned to Strike the West.

Who you gonna believe, me:
Speaking at a news conference, President Bush said: "There is a perception in the coverage that al-Qaeda may be as strong today as they were prior to September 11.

"That's just simply not the case."

Or the people paid to know such things?:
The classified report was from the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC) and was being discussed at the White House on Thursday....

Al-Qaeda is "considerably operationally stronger than a year ago" and has "regrouped to an extent not seen since 2001," an official told the AP news agency paraphrasing the report.

"They are showing greater and greater ability to plan attacks in Europe and the United States."
