BBC NEWS | World | Americas | US ‘conceals high terror figures’

Last year’s original report said there had been a total of 190 terror acts around the world in 2003 – pointing to a steady decrease over three years.
The administration seized on this and other numbers as proof that its war on terror was succeeding.
In the revised report the department said there had in fact been 208 attacks – an increase from 2004.
Then-Secretary of State Colin Powell said there had been no attempt to deceive people, and blamed clerical and administrative errors.
