Government Stops Publishing Terror Stats

The State Department has decided to no longer publish its annual terrorist statistics report. This job has passed to the National Counterterrorism Center, established last year, which has not decided what it is going to do. The last report to be issued by State will be available on April 30.It is worthy noting that the report is shelved a year after it revealed that terror attacks were actually up since the War on Terrorism started, even though the Bush Administration tried to use a trumped down figure to say that attacks were down. That was later revised and naturally the White House denied any wrong doing. The State Department says that it is not suited to issue the report and that another agency is a better fit. Also noteworthy is the fact that since 1985, State has been the one reponsible for writing this report. Have they not been suited for the task since 1985? Or are they conveniently copping out of possibly providing proof that the Administration's war on terror is not proceeding as rosy as they would have you believe? Just a thought.
