The War in Iraq and Terrorism

In a new report, Jeffrey Record — a visiting professor at the U.S. Army War College — says the Bush administration's war in Iraq has been a detour in the war against terrorism. He says it has provided terrorist groups such as al Qaeda a powerful new recruiting tool. Record speaks with NPR's Susan Stamberg.
