Intelligence agencies warned Bush about challenges of Iraq invasion, 5/27/07

U.S. intelligence agencies warned the Bush administration before the invasion of Iraq that ousting Saddam Hussein would create a significant risk of sectarian strife, encourage al-Qaida attacks and open the way for Iranian interference. The Senate Intelligence Committee on Friday released declassified prewar intelligence reports and summaries of others that cautioned that establishing democracy in Iraq would be long, difficult and probably turbulent and said that while most Iraqis would welcome elections, the countrys ethnic and religious leaders would be unwilling to share power.
