The U.S. Intelligence report released on December 3rd, 2007 reported that Iran halted its nuclear program in 2003. This report nullifies the 2005 estimate that the Iranian government was determined to develop a nuclear weapons program. Graham Allison and Eric Rosenbach propose that this new information offers the Bush Administration a new opportunity to repair its broken policy toward Iran.

President Bush's mischaracterization of the Iraq war as a battle against al-Qaeda has led to both a restoration of the extremist group's capabilities to attack the United States and increased support for Jihadist attacks in the region, according to Eric Rosenbach and Matan Chorev.

The international jihadist network of radical Islamic terrorist groups is far more extensive than just al Qaeda, and it has conducted twice as many attacks in the three years since September 11, 2001 as it did in the three years prior to that date. Defeating the Jihadists: A Blueprint for Action (Century Foundation Press, 2004), assesses the nation's successes and failures on homeland security and calls for a stronger, more effective strategy for dealing with jihadists, including al Qaeda. The report offers a detailed action plan for neutralizing the international movement at the core of worldwide terrorism. The report also describes the nature of the jihadist threat; provides comprehensive profiles of the various jihadist groups; and offers a rationale for the effort and money that would be needed to make the plan a success. The plan presented in the report builds on the recommendations of the 9/11 Commission and serves as a road map for winning the war against the jihadists.
