CIA DIRECTOR PORTER GOSS says that Iraq has become a training ground for terrorists, and that the insurgents are using the U.S. occupation, with great success, as a recruiting tool.

"Islamic extremists are exploiting the Iraqi conflict to recruit new anti-U.S. jihadists," CIA Director Porter J. Goss told the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

"These jihadists who survive will leave Iraq experienced and focused on acts of urban terrorism," he said. "They represent a potential pool of contacts to build transnational terrorist cells, groups and networks in Saudi Arabia, Jordan and other countries."
You don't say, Big Guy. No wonder they pay him the big bucks.
