Guardian Unlimited | Special reports | Bush told he is playing into Bin Laden’s hands: “A senior US intelligence official is about to publish a bitter condemnation of America’s counter-terrorism policy, arguing that the west is losing the war against al-Qaida and that an ‘avaricious, premeditated, unprovoked’ war in Iraq has played into Osama bin Laden’s hands.

Imperial Hubris: Why the West is Losing the War on Terror, due out next month, dismisses two of the most frequent boasts of the Bush administration: that Bin Laden and al-Qaida are ‘on the run’ and that the Iraq invasion has made America safer.

In an interview with the Guardian the official, who writes as ‘Anonymous’, described al-Qaida as a much more proficient and focused organisation than it was in 2001, and predicted that it would ‘inevitably’ acquire weapons of mass destruction and try to use them. “
