The recent stories on the National Intelligence Estimate report, make an inference to the Al-Qaida group using its contacts in Iraq to mount an attack in the United States. The parts of the report, available for reading,  make reference to increased threats, from within “radicalized” groups, and  indicates that the United States still faces threats, but also points to the fact that these threats may also be coming to us without a “centralized terrorist organization.” This aspect of the report got very little play in the media, which skews the story a bit. The headlines associated with the report, were sensational and surprising – the report itself is not.
