9.11: Imaginary Intelligence
Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.'
John 8:32, inscription on the entry to the CIA

James Der Derian, Director, ITWP
When Washington officials send in the tropes, you know more than a 
linguistic crisis is at hand... The immediate cause of rhetorical excess 
was the revelation that on August 6 President Bush received a PDB 
(Presidential Daily Briefing) by the CIA about a possible al Qaeda 
hijacking threat. Old as well as new information about past warnings of 
terrorist attacks quickly piled up: a July 5 report by the FBI Phoenix 
field office warned of 'Middle Eastern men' training at U.S. flight 
schools; after his flight training in Minnesota aroused suspicions, 
Zacarias Moussaoui (the '20th hijacker') was arrested August 15 on a visa 
violation, but the FBI counterterorist unit rejected a request to search a 
computer that contains important planning details; and on August 24 the CIA 
learned that Khalid al-Midhar and Nawaq Alhazmi (suspects in the USS Cole 
bombing and among the hijackers who hit the Pentagon on 9-11) were in the 
US, but the FBI failed to locate them.

Ausserdem koennte unser Symposium zum Thema Technologies of Anti/ Counter 
Terror (TACT) von Interesse sein. Details sind hier zu finden Eine Videodokumentation 
ist geplant (die Dokumentation einer Konferenz on Virtual Y2K ist hier 



Peace is not the absence of conflict but the presence of creative
alternatives for responding to conflict --
alternatives to passive or aggressive responses,
alternatives to violence.
