U.S. Releases “Terror” Report

Filed under: Politics,World News — disciplepete @ 6:23 pm

So the U.S. State Department released its annual “Country Reports on Terrorism” report, accusing some countries of sponsoring terrorism…did your favorite country make the list? Al Jazeera:

The US has said Iran remains the “most active” state sponsor of what it calls “terrorism”.
The report also listed Syria, North Korea, Cuba and Sudan as backers of what it called terror groups.
 
 
 

The Venezuelan government of Hugo Chavez was accused of failing to co-operate with US anti-terrorist efforts, the report said.

 

Re: Afghanistan and Iraq:
The report also said attacks by fighters in Afghanistan rose by 16 per cent between 2006 and 2007 partly because of rise in al-Qaeda activity in neighbouring Pakistan.
The US said that al-Qaeda had built up its operations in Pakistan’s tribal areas over the course of the year.
The US said attacks in Iraq dropped slightly between 2006 and 2007 but they accounted for 60 per cent of worldwide terrorism fatalities.
