As domestic support for the U.S. occupation of Iraq continues to decline, American withdrawal is no longer a question of "if," but "when" and "how soon." INTELWIRE/INTELFILES presents a special report examining the all-too-real prospect that al Qaeda can successfully leverage any foreseeable scenario for U.S. withdrawal from Iraq against its extremely effective propaganda efforts in the Middle East to create a semi-cohesive regional Islamic power bloc -- an extremist-led political force commanding some of the world's richest resources, an arsenal of nuclear weapons and a territory comparable in size to the continental United States.
