State Dept. Issues Revised Terror Report

The State Department issues its revised terrorism report, correcting its annual paper released in April. The initial findings, showing a decline in terrorism during 2003, led some U.S. officials to claim the country was winning the war against terrorists. But the revised report, using more accurate data, shows that terrorist attacks actually increased in 2003. NPR's Michele Kelemen reports.
