The Central Intelligence Agency has warned that terrorists based in Iraq are planning attacks against American and allied forces inside the country after any invasion, government counterterrorism officials say.
The agency's previously undisclosed assessment has circulated among senior Bush administration officials. It describes both the risks of terror attacks on American forces inside Iraq if an invasion occurs and the danger of similar attacks on troops already massing in the region.

(1) The sons of bitches found another way to get that "Saddam = al-Qaeda" nonsense back into print, disguised as fact.
(2) Excuse me, but if the people being attacked are soldiers, it's not terrorism. It may be sneaky, it may be in violation of the rules of war, but it's guerrilla warfare, not terrorism. People who don't want you to think clearly keep blurring the distinction between "terrorism" and other forms of nastiness -- thus helping to blur the distinction between heads of state like Saddam and stateless terrorists like Osama. The same people use words like "democratic" and "free" when they merely mean "pro-Western," or now, perhaps, "pro-First World" (or "pro-American," or "pro-Bush-and-his-friends"). Don't get sucked in.
