The House Intelligence Committee releases a report on al-Qaida that immediately drew fire from committee Democrats, none of whom endorsed it. They say the report is designed to frighten Americans in an effort to build support for Republicans in the November elections.

A committee report on Iran prepared by GOP staffers earlier this year was similarly criticized as a campaign document rather than a serious assessment of the threat.
