In an interview with journalist Peter Bergen on February 13, 2007, “Art Keller, a CIA officer stationed in the tribal areas of Pakistan in 2006, points out that the Iraqi ‘flypaper’ [drawing in of terrorists] didn’t prove to be particularly sticky: ‘People were going from the Afghan/Pakistan border to Iraq to learn the tactics and then came back. Seems like the reverse of the way the War on Terror was supposed to work.’ “
