Opportunist bin Laden is waiting: ASIO head
"Australia's security intelligence chief, Dennis Richardson, has warned that a war against Iraq, with or without the backing of the United Nations, "may well" influence the timing of a new wave of terrorist attacks.

"Mr Richardson, the director of ASIO, told industry leaders in Sydney that Osama bin Laden - "forever the opportunist" - would also try to exploit contemporary "issues and events for his own propaganda purposes, in the hope that it will feed him more recruits".
