National Intelligence Estimate

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) released a new report today, "National Intelligence Estimate: The Terrorist Threat to the US Homeland." Declassified key findings report that the United States will face a "persistent and evolving" terrorist threat in the next three years from Islamic terrorist groups and cells. Al-Qaida "is and will remain the most serious terrorist threat" to the US.

National Intelligence Estimates (NIEs) are the ODNI's most authoritative written judgments concerning national security issues. They contain the coordinated judgments of the Intelligence Community regarding the likely course of future events.

Read more about this in the Washington Post's "Intelligence Report Warns of al-Qaeda's Capabilities" and "Al-Qaida Likely to Attack US, Intel Says."
