Published July 17, 2007

The key judgments of this document include as assessment that al-Qaeda "is and will remain the most serious terrorist threat" to the U.S., and that it has "protected or regenerated key elements of its Homeland attack capabilities".

It also assesses possible actions of Hezbollah and the spread of radical internet sites.
