Iraq war diverts focus from terrorism on Afghan border, 1/23/07

Despite President Bushs repeated warnings that al-Qaida wants to turn Iraq into a base from which to attack the United States, administration terrorism experts believe theres a graver and more immediate threat from Pakistans tribal areas. But the war in Iraq is constraining the presidents ability to respond. An intelligence assessment given to Congress, together with a new policy review calling for more troops and funding for civilian programs in Afghanistan and Pakistan, point to the Bush administrations growing dilemma: how to wage war in Iraq and Afghanistan at the same time.
