The Iraq war has increased the threat of terrorism by spreading the jihadist threat to Muslim communities that were less radicalized before the invasion, argues Daniel Benjamin. He's co-author of a new book, The Next Attack and a former National Security Council staffer in the Clinton administration.

The Next Attack, written by Benjamin and Steven Simon, is their second book about counterterrorism, post-Sept. 11.
