Rita could equal $5 gas
The timing and strength of the latest storm could cause worse spike at the pumps than Katrina did

NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Remember when gas spiked to $3-plus a gallon after Hurricane Katrina? By this time next week, that could seem like the good old days.

Weather and energy experts say that as bad as Hurricane Katrina hit the nation's supply of gasoline, Hurricane Rita could be worse.

Katrina damage was focused on offshore oil platforms and ports. Now the greater risk is to oil-refinery capacity, especially if Rita slams into Houston, Galveston and Port Arthur, Texas.

"We could be looking at gasoline lines and $4 gas, maybe even $5 gas, if this thing does the worst it could do," said energy analyst Peter Beutel of Cameron Hanover. "This storm is in the wrong place. And it's absolutely at the wrong time," said Beutel.

Building a greater reason to attack Iran

Michael Schlacter, chief meteorologist at Weather 2000, said Rita now appears most likely to hit between Port Arthur and Corpus Christi, Texas, sometime between Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.

Just about all of Texas's refinery capacity lies in that at-risk zone. (For a look at CNN.com's coverage of Hurricane Rita, click here.)

"There is no lucky 7-10 split scenario to use a bowling analogy," he said. "If you're [a refiner] within 200 miles, you're going to feel the effect."

Compounding Katrina's impact

When Katrina hit, 15 refineries, nearly all in Louisiana and Mississippi, with a combined capacity of about 3.3 million barrels a day were shut down or damaged, according to the Energy Department. That represented almost 20 percent of U.S. refining capacity.

Within a week, almost two-thirds of that damaged capacity had resumed some operations, according to the department. But four refineries with nearly 900,000 barrels a day of capacity are still basically shut down.

If Rita hits both the Houston-Galveston area, as well as the Port Arthur-Beaumont region near the Texas-Louisiana border, that could take out more than 3 million barrels of capacity a day, according to Bob Tippee, editor of the industry trade journal Oil & Gas Journal in Houston.

"Before Katrina, the system was already so tight that the worst-case scenario was for a disruption that took 250,000 barrels of capacity out of the picture. That would have been considered a major jolt," said Tippee.

"We're already in uncharted territory now. We can't project what happens from another shot the size of Katrina or worse."

Part of the problem is that skilled crews needed to make refinery repairs are already busy trying to fix the Katrina damage. That would extend recovery time from Rita.

"[Rita] could have a significant impact on supply and prices -- this really is a national disaster," Valero Energy (Research) CEO Bill Greehey in an interview with Reuters Tuesday evening.

Rita May Be
'National Disaster'
- Oil CEO
9-22-5
 
SAN ANTONIO (Reuters) - Valero Energy Corp. (VLO.N: Quote, Profile, Research) Chairman and Chief Executive Bill Greehey said Hurricane Rita's impact on U.S. crude oil production and refining could be a "national disaster."
 
"If it hits the refineries, and we're short refining capacity, you're going to see gasoline prices well over $3.00 a gallon at the pump," Greehey said in a Tuesday night interview.
 
Valero became the largest U.S. refiner earlier this year when it completed the purchase of Premcor Inc. Valero operates refineries in Port Arthur, Houston, Texas City and Corpus Christi, Texas -- all potentially in the path of Hurricane Rita.
 
"It's going to be coming across the (U.S.) Gulf (of Mexico)," Greehey said. "There's a lot of oil platforms, oil rigs, (natural) gas platforms, gas rigs. It could have a significant impact on supply and prices, and then, depending on what it does to the refineries, there are still four refineries that are shut down. So this really is a national disaster."
 
Refineries in Houston and Texas City process 2.3 million barrels of crude oil or 13.5 percent of daily U.S. refining capacity. The Beaumont-Port Arthur, Texas, refineries account for another 1.1 million barrels in refining capacity.
 
Based on Rita's current forecast path Texas City, Houston, Port Arthur and Beaumont could be lashed by high winds and heavy rains from Rita's northeast quadrant, which often packs the highest winds in a hurricane.
 
Valero announced on Wednesday morning it would reduce production at its Houston and Texas City refineries to prepare for the hurricane.
 
"You've got refineries that will start shutting down in anticipation of the hurricane, and then if any of them have permanent damage, we're going to be dependent on imports. Following Katrina, this is really serious."

On to Purim Iran the stepping stone to Damascus

http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?pagename=JPost/JPArticle/ShowFull&cid=1127269284573


America's Syria problem

State Department spokesman Adam Ereli (Talmudic Hassidic shem) did not mince words last week as he lashed out against the Syrian regime. He called Syria under President Bashar Assad a "troublemaker," accused the country of being a "destabilizing element" in the region and described Syrian attempts to close the border with Iraq as a mere "dog-and-pony show" organized by the authorities in Damascus.

Syria opposes the shemborg collective

Ereli's attack on Syria came after a week of harsh rhetoric from Washington aimed at the Syrian president. The first to set the tone was American ambassador in Iraq, Zalmai Khalilzad, who, while speaking to reporters at the State Department, warned Syria that "our patience is running out," blaming Damascus for turning itself into a hub for international terrorists seeking to enter Iraq.

Then came President Bush, who declared that "the Syrian government is going to be more and more isolated."

TREASONOUS MURDERER

Finally, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice added her voice to the chorus, saying that in the past the Syrian government has shown that it is capable of closing its borders – so it is time to stop what she called "the game" of allowing insurgents to cross into Iraq and carry out terror attacks against Americans and Iraqis.

hey get the Brits out and the attacks will stop immediately, as well as the CIA and the Mossad

That week of American pressure culminated in a meeting with Arab and European leaders to deal with the "Syrian problem." The purpose of this meeting was not to reach an agreement on a course of action concerning Syria, but rather to raise awareness about the issue and increase the pressure against Assad.

This wasn't the way Syria expected to see the week unfold. The Syrian leader planned to use the UN General Assembly as a backdrop for showing the world the new face of Syria. Assad was supposed to come to New York with his wife and an entourage of Syrian officials. He had planned a full-blown charm campaign with high-profile media events, photo-ops and even personal interviews. But, as time went by and the US grew less and less patient toward Syria, Assad understood that it wasn't the best of times for such a show. In fact, he decided to avoid the General Assembly altogether.

When asked last week about the possibility of using military force against Syria, Ambassador Khalilzad said, "all options are on the table." A closer look, however, shows that the American "table" is rather bare, and the options scarce.

the same Treasonous Rhetoric Bushitler used in the Illegal war on IRAQ to begin with....no one remembers Emanuel Goldstein (ben Laden) 

The use of military force in order to overthrow the Assad regime is practically out of the question. The US has had its share of forceful regime changes for one administration and lacks the will, the force and the public support to initiate such a move. Though there is the option to use limited military force – such as a small-scale operation along the border, crossing into Syrian territory if necessary – but this is also seen in Washington as an unlikely course of action. Any military action, no matter how limited, would serve more as a signal to Damascus than as an actual threat. As such, it is way too risky at this stage of the conflict.

Another option, also highly unlikely, is for the US to take an active role in changing the regime in Syria, by supporting and encouraging opposition groups. This would be considered very risky, since it involves an element of active subversion that would not be accepted easily by the American public. It is also unclear if there are opposition groups in Syria who are ready at this juncture to step up to the plate. In addition, there is always the danger that the departure of Bashar Assad would bring back to power the old guard which was loyal to his father, Hafez al-Assad.

Bar-Ilan University head: Rabbis have no authority in political, public arenas

By Shahar Ilan

Don't pay heed to rabbis when it comes to matters of the state, Bar-Ilan University President Moshe Kaveh urged the national religious public yesterday. "The rabbis do not have authority in the public and political arena," he said.

In an interview with Haaretz, Bar-Ilan's president for the past decade said that "religion should denounce rabbis who gave rise to a delusional vision, false messianism and statements such as, `I'm praying that the disengagement will not take place and therefore it won't.'"

Kaveh did not mention names, but harshly slammed rabbis who had called on soldiers to refuse disengagement orders, and said the withdrawal from the Gaza Strip and northern West Bank would not go ahead. Former chief rabbis Avraham Shapira and Mordechai Eliyahu were among those who went public with such calls, and therefore, Kaveh's statements can be viewed as a direct attack on religious Zionism's two most important spiritual leaders.

"These radical rabbis suffered a resounding defeat - a knockout in sport's language," Kaveh said, adding he believed the pullout had gone ahead with minimal violence, "because the religious public has internalized the lesson of [former prime minister Yitzhak] Rabin's murder."

The full interview appears in tomorrow's Haaretz Magazine.

New York TREASON and Blasphemy

NYC Mayor Gives In To Satmar, Agudah In Apparent Election Deal – Circumcision Deal Clearly Not Kosher

Nyc_mayor_and_haredim_81105_1
Ultra-Orthodox rabbis meet with NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg regarding ritual circumcision, August 11, 2005. (Photo credit: Edward Reed)

The deal between NYC and Satmar is expained by Debra Nussbaum Cohen in tomorrow's NY Jewish Week:

The city of New York last week withdrew its lawsuit against a fervently Orthodox mohel suspected of transmitting herpes to three baby boys — one of whom died — and after nearly a year of investigation turned the matter over to a chasidic rabbinical court in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, a move described as unusual by some legal experts.

Since the investigation of Rabbi Yitzchok Fischer began, the case has proven a nexus where ancient religious practice, public health, constitutional law and political influence converge, and it is made even more complicated by the fact that this is an election year. It also appears to be the first time that New York City government has turned over a case involving public health to a religious body for adjudication.

inculcation of the devil and state by TREASON and Blasphemy and murder

Arthur Eisenberg, legal director of the New York Civil Liberties Union, said that the health department’s turning the matter over to the rabbinical court “surprises me.”

what next? sacrifice a Goyim Child and the New York Justice system will hand the case to SANHEDRIN?

He said that while the U.S. Supreme Court has “substantially weakened” constitutional protection conferred on the free exercise of religion, this case seems one in which government’s legal right to intervene seems clear.

“Where there are allegations of serious health problems arising from the practices of a specific mohel, intervention by public health officials is appropriate,” Eisenberg said.

With the agreement struck with the Central Rabbinical Congress, a religious court whose more typical cases deal with marital and business disputes in the Satmar, Pupa, Vishnitz and Skver chasidic communities, the city’s temporary restraint order was lifted against the mohel.

Still, according to a brief statement from the city’s health department, Rabbi Fischer has agreed to not perform metzitzah b’peh — which is oral suctioning of blood off a baby’s penis after a ritual circumcision — while the rabbinical court investigates whether it is prudent or not to allow him to continue the practice.

continue with premeditated murder sanctioned by the Treasonous Mayor Bloomberg the Talmudic jew

There has long been dispute among rabbinic authorities in Jewish law over metzitzah b’peh, and discussion of it is detailed in the Talmud. Today only mohels serving the fervently Orthodox community engage in metzitzah b’peh, with others using different methods — a pipette or a sponge — to suction.

That chasidic rabbinical court began its investigation two weeks ago. 

BY TREASON and blasphemy Totally bypassing the US Constitutional Courts of this Once great Christian Nation

“It will take as long as needed to get to the bottom of the case,” said Rabbi David Niederman, head of United Jewish Organizations of Williamsburg, who is coordinating the investigation. He declined to specify what it will involve, though he did say that infectious disease experts are being consulted and that rabbis on the religious court have spoken with Rabbi Fischer.

“I don’t want to go into all the details,” he said. “This is a private affair.”

MURDER a Private affair

Rabbi Fischer’s attorney, Mark Kurzmann, would not allow him to speak with a reporter and said, “I’m gratified that the city’s case is over.”

“This is an important religious free-exercise case,” said the attorney, adding he felt the city’s actions “reflect responsible officials coming to grips with the reality that there is credible, factual or scientific basis for the belief that these three cases aren’t anything but tragic coincidences.”

Next up, by one false witness and One False Judge MURDER all the saints of Jesus the Christ via Noahide enforcement via the Dragons Talmud of the Sanhedrin Beast

He said he does not know if Rabbi Fischer does metzitzah b’peh at brit milot outside of New York City and declined to ask him.

New York City’s case began last November, after health department officials learned that three babies — twin boys in Brooklyn and another in Staten Island — showed signs of being infected by herpes within days of being ritually circumcised by Rabbi Fischer. One of those twins soon died.

The health department asked Rabbi Fischer to have his blood and saliva tested and initially, court documents say, he did not cooperate. Eventually, however, he did.

As soon as the city moved against Rabbi Fischer, the fervently Orthodox community framed the issue as one of the free exercise of religion and lobbied hard to end health department involvement.

MURDER is covered up by the Talmudic Jews

A first major meeting between rabbis and Mayor Michael Bloomberg was held in January. “That meeting and several others got us to the point of getting the city to commit not to regulate the practice of metzitzah b’peh,” said Rabbi David Zwiebel, executive vice president for government and public affairs at Agudath Israel, which represents the interests of the fervently Orthodox community, who was at the meeting.

After months of meetings between rabbis and other fervently Orthodox community representatives, and New York City’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, some 20 rabbis met with Mayor Bloomberg this summer and apparently persuaded him that the case was a matter they, rather than a government agency, should deal with.

Upon seizing the reins of government, the new Noachide leaders will move quickly to implement a full agenda of reform.  ...  Full support will be given to Israeli forces to reinvade PLO-controlled areas, with military assistance offered where necessary.  Jewish courts ... will be granted full legal sovereignty over Jewish citizens within each country, who will no longer be subject to the authority of gentile courts.  The pre-existing Noachide judges and courts will replace the existing court system of each country, and the legal code will be drastically rewritten to conform to halacha....  ....  And law and order will be fully restored through the establishment of internal security measures, again in accordance with Torah law. — Committee for Israeli Victory

 

“This is a victory in the abstract because whenever you have a serious religious matter, then those are best left to religious communities to handle,” said Rabbi Zwiebel.

“The mayor saw that this is a question of religion vs. a tradition, for example, and thought about it and said ‘you’re right,’ ” said Rabbi Niederman, who attended the recent meeting.

Rabbi Niederman denied that the mayor and agencies under his control turned the case over to the chasidic community during the run-up to a mayoral election rather than alienate a population that votes as a bloc.

“The mayor is going to be re-elected. We all know that. This is not a political issue,” said Rabbi Niederman.

According to Kurzmann, “this is not a case of political power subordinating public health issues. No one cares more about the health of a community’s infants than the community itself.”

Others, however, said that election-year politics appear to be at play. Some observers felt Bloomberg was not willing to risk alienating the Satmar community, known for voting in a bloc.

Throw that Hassidic Satanic Treasonous Blasphemous Viper into the streets

Legal experts say that this not the only case in which the need to protect public health has conflicted with the Constitution’s clause guaranteeing Americans the right to the free exercise of religion.

has nothing to do with MURDER and TREASON and Blasphemy

There is a federal ban on female genital mutilation, which is a cultural and religious practice in some African communities, because it does irreparable harm to women, said Marc Stern, general counsel to the American Jewish Congress.

There have also been cases of children being inoculated even against their parents’ religious objections, Stern said.

In his view the health risk of metzitzah b’peh has not been proven, said Stern. “There’s substantial question about whether there is or isn’t harm.”

A paper in the medical journal Pediatrics last year studied eight cases of baby boys in Israel who developed herpes after their circumcision, “most probably as a consequence of transmission by the mohel’s saliva,” it states. “Oral metzitzah after ritual circumcision may be hazardous to the neonate” because it “carries a serious risk for transmission” of the herpes simplex virus.”

The City Department of Health is not making public the conclusion of its medical investigation.

In 1998, the health department worked with the Orthodox community to get another mohel to stop using metzitzah b’peh after he was linked to two cases of neonatal herpes, according to a legal brief submitted by Dr. Susan Blank, the health department’s assistant commissioner.

Dr. Edward Reichman, an Orthodox rabbi and associate professor of emergency medicine at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, said that the first ties between the technique and infection were reported in a book published in 1811.

A doctor wrote that a group of infants in Krakow’s Jewish quarter were afflicted with genital ulcers, and that it could be traced to the mohel who had performed metzitzah b’peh on them all. At least one of the babies died.

Through the early 1900s, tuberculosis and syphilis were reported as being transmitted, on occasion, between mohels and babies.

MO HELL Pedophiles

For millennia, oral suction was thought to prevent problems for the newly circumcised infant, not create them. But then modern medical science realized that the reverse can actually be true and since the 1950s most American mohels have used pipettes or sponges.

“Once we found out that it is not helpful and moreover, is dangerous, there is absolutely no reason to continue with it, and it should be forbidden,” said Rabbi Leonard Sharzer, a mohel who consults with the New York Board of Rabbis. “Why some groups persist in doing this thing that is dangerous when it was only instituted in the beginning for medical reasons, I can’t think of any reason why it would be done,” he said.

The centrist Orthodox Rabbinical Council of America put out a statement in March strongly advocating use of a tube for suctioning, though it did not ban direct oral suctioning. The fervently Orthodox maintain that it is a crucial aspect of fulfilling the obligation of brit milah — and apparently persuaded city authorities of its necessity

SEMINAR ABSTRACT:
This Seminar features ground-breaking advances in intelligence technology, as well as a discussion of those key technology issues which affect the entire intelligence domain at every level - federal, state and local. Contemporary problems of interagency software capability and compatibility will be addressed, as well as recent advances in software for intelligence sharing. There will also be a discussion of new developments in facial identification and voice recognition, and a potentially major breakthrough in remote intelligence assessment of chemical and biological hazards, which will be of great interest to civilian first providers, as well as the military. In addition, this Seminar provides a forum for all intel interests to voice requests to industry vendors for future hardware, software and services - their wish lists for new technology. CEO's of major product development firms will be presenters along with a former NSA Director with significant interagency technological experience.
PE2: Political, Policy and Legal Issues
Seminar Leaders:
Brent Budowsky, Former Senior Staff, Democratic Leadership
Jeff Bliss, Hoover Institution

SEMINAR ABSTRACT:
In the morning, there will be a substantial discussion of the evolving standards regarding prisoner interrogation. Recent Supreme Court decisions have significantly changed the ground rules for intelligence exploitation, POW interrogations and traditional law enforcement investigations. A senior military interrogator, recently returned from Baghdad, will raise the issues surrounding the application of new interrogation restrictions in the real-world threat environment. Later in the Seminar, discussion will focus on the Patriot Act. In considering whether it is an inadequate response to a rising terrorism threat, or an over-the-top reaction to 9/11, there will be an analysis of those sections of the Act, which may be at risk of being struck down as unconstitutional. An examination of impending legislation, and its potential impact on intel organizations, will be the basis for timely discussion and debate. Key members from the House and Senate intelligence committees will participate as panelists and presenters to ensure thorough and comprehensive coverage. Also speaking are former General Counsels for the CIA and DIA, and a former Deputy Attorney General from DOJ.
PE3: Role of Congress in Intelligence Oversight
Seminar Leaders:
Sen. Slade Gorton, 9/11 Commission
Dr. Michael Ledeen, Freedom Scholar, American Enterprise Institute

SEMINAR ABSTRACT:
One of the more vexing perennial questions in intelligence oversight - how much is too much? - will be addressed in this Seminar. Is there meaningful evidence that too little oversight has taken place? Members of the 9/11 Commission shall present their points of view, as will former DCI's and Directors of other agencies, on the battle to balance the needs for executive secrecy against demands for public accountability. Issues of budget disclosure and notification of covert action will be visited at length. Another oversight-related problem which continues to plague the intelligence community - leaks to the media - will be tackled by members of the House and Senate intelligence committees who will offer their opinions and positions on which branch of government is most responsible for these breaches. Former senior IC leaders will take this opportunity to propose possible solutions, which can work for all parties.
PE4: Reforming the Intelligence Community
Seminar Leader:
Harold Rhode, Office of the Secretary of Defense

SEMINAR ABSTRACT:
Congress has passed a 600-page bill, which changes the intelligence chain-of-command and rearranges intel responsibilities. It's not hyperbole to suggest that we are going through the most dramatic structural reform in the history of the intelligence community…and this Seminar may be the first forum where members of Congress and the IC can share their reactions to the new legislation behind it all.

Among the questions slated to be discussed are: who reports to the new National Director of Intelligence, from where will staff be drawn, and what is the impact of budgetary control over the IC in the war against terror? Some of the speakers are optimists who see the NDI as a new and powerful force to compel greater cooperation and efficiency among members of the intelligence community, while others are cynics who say that the new Director doesn't even have a chair yet, let alone an office or staff. While some of the participants may underestimate the strength of the consensus shared by Capitol Hill and the White House on the need for radical change after 9/11, most seem to agree that if this legislation proves unworkable, Congress will readily pass a new bill. In any event, it will be a lively debate!

With this Seminar, INTELCON is providing a neutral setting for a frank and honest dialogue between lawmakers and the IC. Presenters include representatives of the 9/11 Commission and key members of the House and Senate intelligence committees; and, since this Event takes place only a few weeks after the new Congress convenes, what happens here may play a major role in shaping the results of the legislation.
PE5: Finding and Keeping Intelligence Specialists
Seminar Leader:
David Jimenez, U.S. Border Patrol, DHS

SEMINAR ABSTRACT:
How can the U.S. Government possibly hope to retain its intelligence and security specialists when private contractors in Iraq are offering them salaries up to $1000 a day? Is the solution better pension benefits, more suitable career tracks, more flexibility in their assignments? Or is the growth of private security companies the problem? After investing a quarter of a million dollars in training a special forces operator, what will it take to keep that resource on assignment? Congress may have to recognize that very substantial bonuses - in the quarter million dollar per annum range - may have to be paid before covert operatives volunteer to spend years risking their lives behind the lines in hard target countries such as North Korea and Iran. These are but a few of the issues that will be on the table in this Seminar.

With state and local, as well as federal, agencies similarly experiencing great difficulty in finding and retaining qualified translators, speakers will consider outsourcing these needs to the private sector, building a pool of security-cleared translators, or possibly creating a centralized national translation service. They will also discuss federal scholarships for those who wish to train as intelligence specialists with a minimum commitment of national service; the necessity for every translator to have a secret or top secret clearance [which is worse - an uncleared translator or an untranslated secret?]; and, non-compete covenants that are widely used in the private sector. All this, and more, are bound to remind congressional and other intel interests attending this Seminar that you get what you pay for [and right now the private sector is paying more!].
PE6: View from Abroad
Seminar Leader:
Lee Mason

SEMINAR ABSTRACT:
Since 9/11, we have learned that other nations do things differently, some of them better - in fact, much better! The British have an independent assessment capability at the Joint Intelligence Committee level, and a firewall between evaluation and collection. Israelis have a fully centralized and cross-integrated intelligence data system, whereas America lacks even a central index. The hodge podge of American jurisdictional boundaries causes utter bewilderment among our allies. For example, the U.S. military can investigate foreign threats to our domestic peace, but cannot collect domestic intelligence about foreign connections; the FBI handles domestic crimes, but so do Customs, Immigration, Treasury, etc.; the CIA handles positive collection overseas but so does DIA; DOD controls the satellites, but CIA controls their targeting. In this Seminar, attendees will hear our allies' perspectives of these and other facets of our modus operandi, and about their belief in the concept of "jointness" that transformed the U.S. military in the 1980's, which they feel should be applied to the intelligence community, as well.
PE7: Sharing Intelligence
Seminar Leader:
Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld, Consultant to State and Defense Departments

SEMINAR ABSTRACT:
This is a forum for state and local law enforcement, business and the remainder of the private sector to discuss their relationships with the federal intelligence community, and with each other. For the first time, each partner within the intelligence domain will have the opportunity to listen to everyone's point of view. It may get uncomfortable, but INTELCON is not about sugar-coating or spin. Problems exist - federal agencies do not share well with others. For example, several states are working together to compile their own databases on biological warfare because the federal government will not provide them the necessary data; yet, it's the state and local first responders who will bear the brunt of any future NBC attack. There is no federal-state "need to know" policy, nor any integrated system for providing federal security clearances to our municipal level intelligence providers. On the other hand, very few, if any, state and local law enforcement officials are even minimally trained in federal intelligence collection needs. In this Seminar, sheriffs with real-world experience will share their concerns with governors' representatives and people from federal agencies. While allowing for some much needed venting, participants will focus on the creation of federal intelligence training centers for state and local providers, the use of shared databases, and increased access to federal security clearances by first responders with a potentially critical need to know.
PE8: Getting the Public Involved
Seminar Leader:
Robert Jordan, Editor, Homeland Defense Journal

SEMINAR ABSTRACT:
For many years, there has been a huge gap between the general public and the IC in the perception of intelligence. The hard truth is, that at local levels, more attention has been paid to the enmity of encroachment on civil liberties than to the possibility of partnership in fighting a common enemy. In the post-9/11 environment, however, there has been a willingness of the citizen soldier to participate in assisting the intelligence community. Some communities have first-rate programs for encouraging training in intelligence collection. A few federal agencies, particularly the CIA, have been doing a credible job in community outreach. Some of these efforts will be reviewed in this Seminar.

Recognizing that, in the long run, members of Congress and the intelligence community work for the same master - the people - and that "the boss" wants more involvement in the war on terror, speakers will also examine whether it is worth the effort, or is public involvement just another PR gimmick like the WWII scrap metal drives. They will attempt to determine if local communities can truly assist federal agencies in the war on terror; and, if so, where they go to get started.

Plenary Session PL1: Counterintelligence Methods and Applications
Speaker:
David Major, Centre for Counterintelligence and Security Studies

SESSION ABSTRACT:
Any serious examination of intelligence reveals its impact on international relations; however, it is essential to also recognize the corresponding role of counterintelligence as an essential component of national strategy. In today's war on terrorism, the role of counterintelligence is at the front lines of identifying, penetrating and neutralizing the terrorist threat. All terrorist attacks are preceded by intelligence collection; and, the tools used to identify and counter espionage are the same tools, methods and applications required to defeat terrorist organizations.

As an example of how essential it will be for the US to use traditional counterintelligence methods to address the terror threat that it faces today, this Seminar will discuss how the British Security Service (MI-5) used them to play the leading role in breaking the back of the terrorism war in Ireland. How MI-5's methods apply to our society will be part of an analysis of US CI that includes a review of the legal and ethical conflict between the requirement to safeguard individual rights, and the need to protect the community, social structure and national security. Also to be addressed are the foundations of, and the relationships between, counterintelligence, internal security, intelligence, security/countermeasures programs and law enforcement.

Track Leaders:
Yossef Bodansky, Former Director, Congressional Task Force On Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare
Robert Baer, Former Central Intelligence Agency
TRACK ABSTRACT:
This Track brings related groups of several agencies together to work on specific common issues. Here - perhaps for the first time - the FBI, CIA, Treasury, DHS services, etc., will meet to discuss how they can achieve inter-agency "jointness" and interface with the international intelligence community. Sessions are intended for individual agencies to educate their peers, as well as members of Congress, on their positions regarding structural reform. Should there be an American MI5, or should the FBI continue to be the lead agency for domestic intelligence? Are the inter-agency task forces effective in intelligence collection, as well as counter-terrorism? Have Customs, Immigration and Treasury been fully utilized as front-line intelligence collectors? These are some of the questions that will be addressed. Additionally, speakers will look into whether the CIA's experience in surveilling insurgent movements is an applicable resource for domestic law enforcement agencies; and how all intel players can help each other achieve the common goal of protecting domestic tranquility.

TRACK ABSTRACT:
This is an opportunity for career employees of the various armed services to interact with each other to address important contemporary issues, such as common problems in technical collection, al-Qaeda modus operandi, the latest developments in intelligence technology, terrorist profiling and forensic intelligence - and how all that information may be shared with state and local law enforcement. The military's experience with outsourcing will be discussed and, for example, whether translation should be done in-house or through a central facility. Panelists will also look into where Congress should allocate the greater of its resources - to satellites or UAVs? (Which gives the "bigger bang for the buck?") And no Track of this nature would be complete without examining how well the Pentagon works with the rest of the intelligence community, and what it can do better.

Even more significantly, this will be the first venue for those working in military intelligence to meet with members of the new Congress. At the top of the agenda for discussion is the recently enacted 600-page bill restructuring the IC under a National Director of Intelligence. Whether characterized as a turf battle, or a genuine effort to protect the military chain-of-command, the controversy over targeting authority and budgetary control has only just begun; and, it will be in full bloom in this INTELCON Track.

Track 3: State and Local Law Enforcement
Track Leaders:
Eric Shawn, Fox TV
Terry Wonder, Consultant
TRACK ABSTRACT:
Our IC assumes and expects that state and local law enforcement agencies will provide key intelligence in the war against terror. But, thus far, intelligence sharing hasn't been a two-way street. Some states are even building their own intelligence databases on biological weapons threats. And what role will the new National Director of Intelligence have in sorting out this tangle of jurisdictions and split responsibilities? These are just a few of the issues that S&L specialists will address in this Track. They will also discuss what a state Governor needs to know; whether Intelligence 101 should be required for new members of Congress - as well as police chiefs; what county sheriffs have to know about profiles of terrorists living in their jurisdictions; new intel technology; and, helicopters versus UAVs for police forces.

Here are some of the other questions to be answered in these jam-packed two days: What should local law enforcement know about forensic intelligence for international money laundering? When do the needs for national intelligence overrule a local criminal investigation? Is it true that we should never catch – just surveil - a spy? How does the intelligence community share classified information with local leadership which doesn't have security clearances? Should sensitive law enforcement information be included in a central investigative database? Do we need to require that federal agencies keep state and local leadership in the loop? Are there ways of ensuring that our state and local first responders are truly part of the total intelligence mix?

TRACK ABSTRACT:
Private-sector businesses have developed expertise in the legal and ethical collection and analysis of information regarding the capabilities, vulnerabilities and intentions of competitors. Their goal is to create strategic value and competitive advantage in business decision-making and company performance. This Track offers unique perspectives into this use of competitive intelligence in business and industry, and the issues surrounding the public/private intelligence relationship. An expert group of practitioners, many of whom are former government intelligence officers, will provide insights on how the business community collects and analyses relevant, timely and actionable intelligence for decision-makers in organizations of any size. Discussions will focus on the public/private intelligence partnership, counterintelligence, cyber security, global collection, analysis tools and data mining; and, provide an opportunity for professional intel organizations within government to dialogue with their corporate counterparts on common intelligence interests.

TRACK ABSTRACT:
INTELCON's theme, "Widening the Intelligence Domain," reflects the broadening of the responsibility for intelligence in this age of terrorism well beyond the customary turf of the IC's civilian and military agencies. Today, intelligence is everyone's concern – or at least it should be - from the IC right down to the general public. And it may very well be that some of our best and brightest players are in the private sector, and being underutilized. With that in mind, this Track was planned as a forum for the often neglected stakeholders in the intel mix - members of the press, academia, ethnic and religious groups, and non-governmental organizations. A whole host of private-sector issues will discussed during these two days of sessions, none the least of which is how well the components within this group can work among themselves, and with federal, state and local government officials. Speakers will address ways to improve minority recruitment; how to do a better job of opening a dialogue with Muslim Americans and other groups, given a shortage of language and area expertise; and, the role of academic and private research organizations in contributing to our understanding of foreign trends and cultures. Then there's the media – does it have a legitimate complaint on declassification, or is the press selling our secrets for profit? Ground rules for the press, who makes the rules, the use of paraphrases instead of directly quoting from intercepts or classified documents; and, if true secrets must be kept, what is the press's role in exposing secret corruption? These issues, and plenty more, will be on the table. And, finally, there will be a no-holds-barred debate about whether the academic community and NGO's are becoming pawns of foreign powers who make generous donations, or are they bastions of free speech that the IC does not want to hear.

Plenary Session PL2: How To Find And Leverage Open-Source Intelligence
Speaker:
Dr. James Arnold Miller Chairman, Interaction Systems Incorporated

SESSION ABSTRACT:
Open Source Intelligence and 21st Century Threats

The recently approved intelligence reform legislation requires the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) to ensure that the intelligence community makes efficient and effective use of open source information and analysis. This special plenary presentation will address how anyone in the traditional intelligence community - or in the public safety community or companies - can systematically locate, select, organize, retrieve, analyze, and disseminate useful open source intelligence (OSINT). The speaker will emphasize how to "separate the wheat from the chaff," especially concerning the torrents of information besieging analysts on such pressing 21st century threats as weapons of mass destruction, terrorism, and insurgency.

Also in the new reform bill is the sense of Congress that the DNI should establish an intelligence center to coordinate collection, analysis, production, and dissemination of OSINT. The speaker will address whether such a center is necessary, and if so, how it might function to significantly improve the use of OSINT with regard to major threats. Also to be discussed is how electronically networked experts in the private sector could collaborate to substantially supplement secret and proprietary intelligence through such activities as building unclassified foundation databases on major threat topics; conducting alternative analysis; and providing strategic warning on global threats.

Seminar PE1: Trends in Intelligence Technology - UAV vs. Satellite
February 8, 14:00-15:15

Cost Effective ISR from Space
Abstract

This presentation will describe a cost-effective approach for satisfying tactical intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance requirements using small spacecraft.

The trade between using UAVs versus satellites for providing the warfighter sensor information is determined by a number of variables, including cost, threat environment, and performance requirements. During the Cold War, in order to address strategic intelligence requirements over huge landmasses of denied territory, the satellite-based approach was the cost-effective choice. For more recent wars where air superiority has been assured, the United States military has been successful in employing both manned aircraft-based sensors and UAVs.

Recently, the Air Force has initiated a Joint Warfighting Space concept to responsively deliver space capabilities directly to the Joint Force Commander to achieve operational and tactical effects. To be affordable, such a vision needs a new approach for providing satellite-based ISR. Orbital Sciences Corporation will describe its past experiences hosting sensor systems on lightweight satellite buses. Among the systems to be discussed will be commercial imagers such as OrbView 3 and OrbView 4, as well as a set of earth observation payloads hosted on NASA satellite programs. Comparisons will be drawn with UAV system implementations. The tradeoffs between hosting sensors on UAVs or satellites will be discussed from the standpoint of collection, processing, and dissemination.

Charles Archer
VP Federal Sector, Identix


 
Biography
Chuck Archer joined Identix in October 2004 as Vice President, Federal Sector, where he is responsible for leading and growing Identix' Federal sector customer relations and business.

Archer's career began with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, where in 1996, after a highly successful 28 years of service, he was appointed by the U.S. Attorney General and the Director of the FBI as Assistant Director In Charge of the Criminal Justice Information Services Division, with oversight of all criminal justice services, including IAFIS and Uniform Crime Reporting systems. As Assistant Director, Archer managed a $300 million annual budget, and launched the $1 billion expansion, development and automation of the agency's activities that culminated in the new National Crime Information Center (NCIC) and National Instant Check System for handguns. He led a workforce of more than 3,000 FBI employees and 600 outside contractors, and established and maintained strong relationships with other Federal agencies and Congress.

Trends in Biometrics: Future & Past
Abstract

We live in a changed world - a world that has become global and networked. As such, we are also facing new challenges, which include terrorism, transnational crime, cyber crime and identity fraud and theft. With new challenges, a new security paradigm is needed.

Security in this age must go beyond borders and firewalls to establish trusted identity. More than ever governments worldwide are turning to technology such as biometrics to identify people and link human action with identity.

Driven by post-9/11 legislation, the US government is leading the world in deploying biometrics technology. Among the significant pieces of legislation driving the awards of large-scale biometrics implementations are:

  • Aviation & Transportation Security Act
      - Live scans in all US airports for background checks
  • U.S. Patriot Act
      - Laid foundation for biometric entry/exit system
      - Mandated background checks for HAZMAT drivers (deadline January 2005)
  • Enhanced Border Security & Visa Reform Act
      - Initiated creation of VISIT system with single finger and live scan at all border crossings
      - Spurred DoS Facial Recognition award for travel documents
      - Laid out visa-waiver country requirements
  • Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002
      - Mandated Seafarer's ID + background checks
  • 9/11 Commission Implementation Act

This presentation will cover the latest advancements in biometrics and the trends in military, intelligence and global security that are impacting the adoption of biometrics. We will provide an update on several high profile implementations such as the Department of Homeland Security, Department of State, and discuss how the military and intelligence community can continue to work with the biometrics industry in furthering the state of the art.

Seminar PE2: Political, Policy and Legal Issues
February 8, 09:00-11:30
Abstract

The two most pressing issues in intelligence policy. First, whether the new national intelligence director's powers are properly formulated. It does not appear to be the case at all. The intelligence community is not likely to benefit from another layer of bureaucracy, no matter how well intentioned. Instead, it should be remodeled in the manner the Defense Department was in the Goldwater-Nichols bill, requiring "jointness" in operation, strategy and budgeting. I remain entirely skeptical about whether this necessary result will obtain from the 2004 legislation. Second, the problem of congressional violations of trust. We have seen several horrific instances of security violations by members of the senate in recent years. Sen. Richard Shelby allegedly leaked the fact that we were monitoring Usama bin Laden's cell phone conversations, resulting in the loss of our ability to do so.

Second, three Democrats -- Jay Rockefeller, Richard Durbin and Ron Wyden -- apparently leaked details about a "black" satellite program. If the laws that require our secrets be kept secret aren't taken seriously by those who hold the public's trust -- such as Shelby and the "Misty Three" -- -- our system of government will not be able to function as the Constitution says it must. If Congress cannot be trusted with secrets such as these, it cannot provide the essential checks and balances on the Executive we rely on it to perform in order to protect us from a runaway president. Right now, we apparently have a runaway Senate. The Justice Department, and Sen. Frist's office, should be working day and night until this problem is solved, and cooperate to ensure the leakers are punished to the full extent of the law.

Robert Baer
Former CIA


 
Biography
A case officer in the Directorate of Operations for the CIA from 1976 to 1997, Robert Baer is the author of two books, Sleeping with the Devil: How Washington Sold Our Soul for Saudi Crude and See No Evil: The True Story of a Ground Soldier in the CIA's War on Terrorism. Whether in those works or in his articles published in The Atlantic Monthly, The Wall Street Journal, and other media, Baer's audience can count on him for his candid exposition about the influence of presidential politics and political correctitude on our nation's judgment about terrorism emanating from the Middle East. Having worked in such diverse locations as New Delhi, Khartoum, Beirut, Paris, Rabat, Dushanbe, and Northern Iraq, Baer resigned from the CIA in 1997 and was awarded the organization's Career Intelligence Medal in 1998. Evidently, Baer's talent for providing refreshing analysis in a prosaic style rich in detail and direct quotes translates well into screenplay form. Indeed, veterans of this year's conference may look forward to a motion picture adaptation of his book See No Evil, re-titled Syriana and starring George Clooney, in Winter 2005.

Spies
Abstract

Today the CIA faces two major problems in retaining new recruits: relatively low salaries and a stifling bureaucracy. You have a lot of young people smart enough to get in but wise enough to get out. The CIA needs to get rid of a couple layers of management. Not only would it improve moral it would allow new officers to get out in the field earlier. A lot of people applying to today, whether from Wall Street or K Street, are making salaries that let them afford Washington property prices; not so in the CIA. At one point not too long ago a starting CIA case officer was making less than a DC policeman. But above all the CIA has got to get out of the press. Getting blamed for 9/11 and WMD has done serious damage to its morale.

Abstract

The CIA's directorate of operations cannot dispense with officers who fluently speak the language of the country they're working in. Translators do not cut it. Anyone who considers spying, putting their lives at risk, only want a one on one relationship with the American they're dealing with. They especially will not work with citizens of their own country afraid they would be betrayed.

Unmanned Airborne Systems: Opportunistic Environment for Border Control ... with Risk.
Abstract

Unmanned Airborne Systems (UASs) are currently being evaluated for procurement and use in Border Control and Homeland Security. These evaluations are an opportunistic exploitation of advances in UASs made possible by decades of investments, and billions of dollars, by the Department of Defense. The opportunistic environment for UASs introduction and use for Border Control comes with an obscure yet significant risk: the risk is an ad hoc procurement and insertion of UASs into service where there is no integrated plan for mission system capability, command and control, integration of manned and unmanned capabilities, asset and mission management, and budget process.

The February 2004 Defense Science Board Study titled "Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and Uninhabited Combat Aerial Vehicles" concluded, "There is no longer any question of the technical viability and operational utility of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). The benefits and promise offered by UAVs in surveillance, targeting and attack have captured the attention of senior military and civilian officials in the Department of Defense, members of congress, and the public alike". Military planners point to fewer investments in new weaponry and more spending on UASs, along with networked communications to assure command and control required to enable real-time and multi-organizational UASs mission capability. Concurrently a shift has occurred away from Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs), a shift from platform-centric to mission-centric capability. Future UASs capabilities and success for Border Control will rest upon the firm foundation of past and future DOD UASs investments; but, will require coordination of Border Control stakeholders who must weigh the opportunity for enhanced surveillance using highly capable mission-centric Unmanned Aerial Systems against the risk of ad hoc procurement and use of platform-centric Unmanned Aerial Vehicles , resulting potentially in unrealized capability.

Seminar PE8: Getting the Public Involved
Role of the Media
February 8, 09:50-10:35
Abstract

The history of the relationship between the media and government agencies has typically been one of distrust, distance and disinformation. There have been intermittent periods of "détente," but generally speaking, the two estates have more often than not been at loggerheads.

Now, in the post-9/11 – Iraq War – War on Terror world we live in, the media is forced to examine its (changing) role. In addition to having to rethink its practices -- particularly as it confronts the realities of asymmetrical war, the targeting of civilians (including journalists), and the rise of new/alternative forms of news gathering and dissemination – the media is trying to come to grips with the responsibilities it has to the public.

Seminar PE2: Political, Policy and Legal Issues
February 8, 14:00-16:45



There is a tendency to focus on particular counterterrorism measures to the exclusion of others. This tendency is undoubtedly driven by media coverage, popular culture, and the American obsession with the question, What's hot and what's not? It too often ignores the multi-faceted nature of the US counterterrorism arsenal. Jeff Breinholt, who heads the Department of Justice's terrorist financing criminal enforcement program, analogizes effective US counterterrorism policy to a golf swing, where the goal is synchronicity. In golf, an unsynchronized swing results in a hook or a fade into the woods. In counterterrorism, the reliance on particular tools to the exclusion of others similarly results in missed opportunities. Synchronicity in counterterrorism means striving to maximize the menu of viable options available to operational decision makers. This ideal requires a healthy and constant competition among governmental components, which aggressively strive for approval to apply their tools to particular counterterrorism challenges. The best example of this dynamic since 9/11 may be the competition between US prosecutors and the Pentagon upon the detection of individual terrorist operatives. While the most prominent legal issues have involved the President's authority to designate enemy combatants, DOD-led military tribunals, and prisoner interrogation methods, academic commentators are beginning to take notice of the large number of terrorism-related criminal prosecutions undertaken in the last few years, seemingly without fanfare. American prosecutors have pushed regular criminal enforcement options and the application of established legal principles to terrorist supporters within the US, from sleeper cells and jihadist groups to seemingly legitimate charities that raise funds for foreign terrorist groups and causes. Mr. Breinholt will survey those prosecutions that have reached a point where public commentary is possible, to illustrate the sometimes-overlooked criminal enforcement option and its importance to a synchronized counterterrorism policy.

Sharing Threat Information at All Levels
Abstract

After 9/11, several major cities (NY, LA, etc) approached the federal government and request help on how their law enforcement agencies could better share terrorist related information. This was the birth of the Joint Regional Information Exchange System (JRIES). When the Department of Homeland Security stood up, it found itself unable to quickly reach out and share threat information using one common system. JRIES helped solve some of that problem but there still was a need for reaching non-law enforcement and leadership all the way down to the county and smaller city levels to include all the state and county Emergency Operations Centers. This compounded itself when DHS was required to reach out to the Private sector and to reach out at both the unclassified and classified (Secret) level. A system, called the Homeland Security Information System (HSIN) is trying to do exactly that. How this is implemented and rolled out becomes a key to this country having a standard way of quickly and securely sharing terrorist threat and warning information.

Brent Budowsky
Former Congressional Leadership Staff


 
Biography
From the mid-1970's to 1990 Brent Budowsky served in senior Congressional Staff positions including Legislative Assistant to former U.S. Senator Lloyd Bentsen, and Legislative Director to Representative Bill Alexander, then Chief Deputy Majority Whip. With Senator Bentsen Mr. Budowsky was extensively involved with the Intelligence Identities Protection Law and Intelligence Officers Death Benefits Act. During his years with Congressional Leadership he was involved with conflicts ranging from Central America and opposing the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan to supporting freedom in Eastern Europe and world trade issues. Mr. Budowsky left politics in 1990 to pursue business interests involving marketing and public affairs ranging from the talent agency that represented Frank Sinatra to a Papal CD to traditional corporate business. Mr. Budowsky reengaged politically after 9-11 and informally advises both Democrats and Republicans. His politics are demonstrated in columns he occasionally writes. In a trilogy of essays in the Christian Science Monitor, Mr. Budowsky proposed after the contested 2000 election that both parties reach out for a new bipartisanship. He later proposed "Lets Make the Democrats the Patriot Party" and finally called in 2002 for a "Star Spangled" national unity ticket of Bob Kerrey and John McCain. Writing in the National Review Online (12/15/04) an essay titled "Reagan, Roosevelt, Rushmore" Mr. Budowsky called Presidents FDR and Ronald Reagan "the great bookends of freedom" who were the indispensable leaders in the victories over fascism and communism. Mr. Budowsky deplores the partisanship and divisions in American politics today and calls for a new bipartisanship necessary for a nation at war, facing what he believes is an inevitable terrorist WMD attack on American soil unless dramatic bipartisan initiatives are undertaken.


Seminar PE2: Political, Policy and Legal Issues
February 8, 14:00-16:45
Abstract

With a very real danger of a future terrorist attack on American soil using WMD there is an urgent need to restore a full bipartisan consensus on policy and appropriate "rules of engagement" between government and media. Intelligence and counter-terrorist policy must be holistic and comprehensive including increased support for human intel, improved protection of classified information, dramatically improved domestic homeland security practices, broad consensus balancing domestic investigative needs and protection of civil liberties, practices and tactics regarding detained prisoners, division of responsibilities and oversight for intelligence policy, and an "attitude adjustment" from both political parties seeking openness and consensus on the litany of leading issues. Regarding the facts of the pending "CIA Identities" ("Wilson") case I will propose going forward that government and media at least informally discuss a non-legislated Code of Ethics in which clear procedures would be established for editors to confirm prior to publication whether identity disclosure should be voluntary withheld.

Seminar PE3: Role of Congress in Intelligence Oversight
February 8, 09:00-09:45
Abstract

Mr. Budowsky will call for a renewed spirit of bipartisanship between the political parties, and executive-legislative collaboration, appropriate for a Nation facing potential terrorist attacks employing WMD. Deplores politicization of intelligence by either party, calls for maximum sharing of information, maximum respect for confidentiality of classified information, and shared commitment to increased support for human intelligence and for risk taking spirit throughout intelligence community. This is fostered by maximum consensus, cooperation, and avoiding any partisanship which has been historically destructive. Executive-Legislative collaboration should create consensus on structural organization of intelligence responsibilities, notification and oversight of Congress, mutual confidence in good faith, executive avoiding tendencies to withhold information, legislative avoiding tendencies to leak classified information.

Abstract

The proliferation of computers and networking technology has caused the computer forensic industry to rethink static computer forensic investigation. The days of seizing a computer hard drive and conducting analysis in the lab are numbered. Rapid and accurate collection of information requires that the computer forensic industry move to the enterprise environment. During this panel, Mr. Butterworth will discuss some of the challenges facing computer forensics technology and how the Industry is changing investigative and intelligence collection tools to address them. Topics of discussion will be how industry is coping with the emergence of larger storage devices and the popularity of removable storage; use of disk encryption software by targets to hide information; clandestine collection against highly mobile and remote targets; automating the collection effort to maximize collection opportunity; and dealing with foreign language in a digital environment. The ultimate objective of the presentation is to provide an understanding of how the computer forensic industry is dealing with challenges facing the collection of binary intelligence.

Moving Toward Total Situational Awareness
Abstract

In today's dynamic security environment real-time access to reliable visual intelligence is not an option - it's a requirement. The ability to have total situational awareness by having access to relevant visual data gives security professionals the ability to significantly enhance their decision making during critical situations.

A growing trend within visual intelligence technologies is the ability to immerse the viewer of surveillance video or still photography in a 360-degree sphere of visual information. These technologies can provide real-time data as well as the ability to navigate within recorded images for the purposes of forensic analysis.

This presentation will give participants a greater understanding of spherical 360-degree image processing technology and its applicability a broad range of security concerns.

The Continuing Crisis of North Korea.
Abstract:

For decades North Korea has posed the most serious threat of destabilization in Northeast Asia. While the regional powers have moved toward greater economic interdependencies since the fall of the Soviet Union, North Korea has continued to upset the political balance by blustering threats, open manufacture of weapons of mass destruction, and grotesque human rights abuses.

Since the mid-1990s with the coincidental signing of the Agreed Framework and the death of the original dictator Kim Il Sung, the situation has only grown more tense. Kim's son and successor Kim Jong Il violated the principles of the Agreed Framework from the outset by continuing to pour scarce resources into a nuclear development program. Meanwhile, the US and supporting nations of Japan, South Korea, Russia, and China propped up the decaying Kim regime through massive infusion of assistance. Tragically, little or none reached the starving people of North Korea but were diverted to the military and to the black market.

Hence we are faced in the early part of this century with a country that exists of an economy of crime and deceit: counterfeiting, drug manufacture and trafficking, export of banned missiles and technology, and sale of weapons of mass destruction are virtually the only sources of income for the faltering regime. Thought of implosion brings with it fear of massive refugee flow with attendant health and management problems, and the always-present possibility of irrational attacks on neighbors.

Gordon Cucullu will discuss these and other factors that brand the Kim Jong Il regime one of the world's most egregious human rights violators and a legitimate charter member of the Axis of Evil. Gordon has addressed many of these topics in his recent book Separated at Birth: How North Korea became the Evil Twin. He will discuss these topics and how we might address them - preferably without overt military action - during his presentation.

Ideas of Intelligence and the Management of Intelligence
Abstract

"Intelligence" means profoundly different things in the British and American governments. In the British government, "intelligence" generally refers to clandestine collection, that is, as the Parliamentary Intelligence and Security Committee has put it, "acquiring more information than is openly available." In the United States, the broader sense is used, meaning all available information from open and covert sources once evaluated, interpreted, integrated and fused into an analytical whole. In British practice, the idea of "intelligence analysis" is almost meaningless. Assessment, as it is generally called, is the ordinary work of the Civil Service in its role of providing Advice to Ministers.

The purpose of intelligence is to provide information that the overt organs of the Civil Service cannot acquire from their overt sources. At the highest, national level, the Joint Intelligence Committee is essentially about providing nationally agreed Advice at the Cabinet level, pooling overt and covert sources in what has been called not intelligence assessment but "government assessment." The only exception in British practice is the Defense Intelligence Staff in the Ministry of Defense, but the professional analysts at DIS also provide expert assessment on matters like weapons of mass destruction and proliferation on a national level as well as for the Ministry of Defense. From the British point of view, the most divergent aspect of the American system is its competitive redundancy, with multiple agencies' performing parallel all-source assessments from a more or less common intelligence database. As a result, almost none of the accepted US thinking or conceptual toolkit can be effectively transposed to the British system.

Three other key differences between Britain and America intensify these lines of the divergence. The first is the relative strength of the Treasury, which will not pay for multiple groups' performing duplicate tasks in different Departments and Ministries. The next is that the Ministry of Defense is far weaker in the British government than is the DoD in the American system, added to the third difference, the fact that intelligence resourcing is via a national Single Intelligence Vote in which (line-item) funds go directly to the operational agencies and not to the parent Ministries that oversee them (the Home Office in the case of MI5 and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office for SIS and GCHQ). This reduces the conflict of interest between intelligence assessment and finance. But the budgetary constraints also force Britain's intelligence agencies and Civil Service departments to collaborate on the assessment process, which both depends on, and intensifies, the ethos of collegiality that allows the British system to be as closely integrated as it is.

Towards a National Counterintelligence Service: MI5 for America?
Abstract

Separating counter-intelligence from law enforcement is a lesson that all of America's allies in the 'Four Eyes' intelligence alliance have had to learn. Only America has failed to decouple counter-intelligence from national policing. Separating the two functions is essential not only for reasons of intelligence operational effectiveness but also for the protection of civil liberties. Providing a body, which has executive action (i.e. arrest) powers with the full range of national security-oriented intrusive intelligence methods as well is a recipe for disaster, as shown the experience of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and Metropolitan Special Branch as well as the excesses of the FBI during the 1960s and early 1970s. Likewise, a police-ethos will also tend to suppress the kind of long-term, 'long game' thinking required for effective security intelligence, again as can be seen the UK and Canadian experiences. The US has successfully detached aspects of the Federal law enforcement brief from the FBI (e.g. DEA and ATF) and these are criminal law enforcement issues much closer to the Bureau's institutional heart than counterintelligence. Therefore there is far less reason not to decouple counter-intelligence as a separate agency as suggested originally in the 1997 National Institute for Public Policy report on national intelligence. The present crisis regarding religious militancy of both domestic and foreign origin makes an independent National Counter-Intelligence Service. Effective implementation of the NCIS model would also, however, require America taking to heart more general lessons from her allies concerning interagency collegial cooperation and network management structures. MI5 is most effective because of its collaborative relationship with the Special Branches of the assorted regional police forces in the UK, with Military policing and special investigation functions, and foreign intelligence generated by its JIC and JTAC partners such as the Secret Intelligence Service and Government Communications Headquarters. Unfortunately, the lack of collegiality and interagency collaboration represent one of the most persistent weaknesses of the US Intelligence Community, and their cultivation and institutionalization represents the single most important reform upon which any intelligence restructuring will ultimately succeed or fail.

The Role of Money in Jihad
Abstract:

We are concentrating on ways in which we can improve our intelligence sharing. However, there is little discussion about the possibility that our national secrets have been exposed to the very enemies we are trying to defeat. When referring to the enemy's money we are usually concerned with how the terrorists collect the funds they need. Equally, if not more disturbing, however, is the possibility that terrorists may be using their money to buy into our national infrastructure in order to undermine our economy and security from within, thus fulfilling Bin Laden's promise to undermine our economic infrastructure. This presentation will focus on one such case study.

Steven Emerson
Executive Director, The Investigative Project
Veteran Terrorism Expert
NBC News Consultant


 
Biography
Steven Emerson is an internationally recognized expert on terrorism and national security and considered one of the leading world authorities on Islamic extremist networks, financing and operations. He now serves as the Executive Director of The Investigative Project, one of the world's largest archival data and intelligence on Islamic and Middle Eastern terrorist groups. Mr. Emerson and his staff frequently provide briefings to US government and law enforcement agencies, Members of Congress and Congressional committees, and print and electronic media, both national and international. Since 9-11, Mr. Emerson has testified and briefed Congress dozens of times on terrorist financing and operational networks of Al Qaeda, Hamas, Hizzbollah, Islamic Jihad, and the rest of the worldwide Islamic militant spectrum.

Mr. Emerson is the author of five books on terrorism and national security, most recently of the national best seller, American Jihad: The Terrorists Living Among Us (Free Press). He and his organization have been quoted or profiled in hundreds of newspaper and television stories since 09-11. He now serves as NBC's terrorism analyst.

Mr. Emerson started The Investigative Project in late 1995, following the broadcast of his documentary film, Jihad in America, on Public Television. The film exposed video of clandestine operations of militant Islamic terrorist groups on American soil. For the film, Mr. Emerson received numerous awards including the George Polk Award for best television documentary, one of the most prestigious awards in journalism. He also received the top prize from the Investigative Reporters and Editors Organization (IRE) for best investigative report in both print and television for the documentary. The award from the IRE was the fourth such award he had received from that group. The documentary, which was excerpted on 60 Minutes, is now standard viewing for federal law enforcement and intelligence organizations.

Mr. Emerson is recognized as having been the first and only terrorist expert to have testified and warned about the threat of Islamic militant networks operating in the United States and their connections worldwide. He specifically warned about the threat of Osama Bin Laden's network in pioneering Congressional testimony delivered in 1998. Nearly every one of the terrorist suspects and groups first identified in his 1994 film have been indicted, prosecuted or deported since 9-11. Because of security threats, Mr. Emerson now lives under false cover in the United States.

Mr. Emerson has authored or co-authored five books: American Jihad: The Terrorists Living Among Us (Free Press, 2002); Terrorist: The Inside Story of the Highest-Ranking Iraqi Terrorist Ever to Defect to the West (Villard/Random House, 1991); The Fall of Pan Am 103: Inside the Lockerbie Investigation (Putnam, 1990); Secret Warriors: Inside the Covert Military Operations of the Reagan Era (Putnam, 1988); and The American House of Saud: The Secret Petrodollar Connection (Franklin Watts, 1985).

In a feature article on Emerson in Brown Alumni Magazine (November-December 2002), former head of NSC Counterterrorism Richard Clarke said, "I think of Steve as the Paul Revere of terrorism ... [Clarke] credits Emerson with repeatedly warning of Al Qaeda sleeper cells in the United States. He adds that he would attend Emerson's speeches whenever possible because 'we'd always learn things we weren't hearing from the FBI or CIA, things which almost always proved to be true.'"

In that same feature article, Andrew McCarthy, Assistant U.S. Attorney who prosecuted the 1993 World Trade Center bombings, said ".Emerson was helpful in preparing to cross-examine defense witnesses in the [1993 World Trade Center bombings] case...He's a valuable source of information and knowledge. And in terms of trying to find places to look for evidence, he's a very good person to talk to. He's got a lot of insight."

Robert Blitzer, former Chief of the FBI's Domestic Terrorism/Counter-Terrorism Planning Section, has said, "Steve Emerson has tremendous information and I have no doubt that he is better informed in many areas of terrorism than we were in the government."

In his speeches, Steven Emerson holds audiences spellbound as he reveals the frightening extent of the worldwide terrorist network in the United States. Now recognized as perhaps the foremost expert in the world on terrorism, Mr. Emerson captivates is audiences with hitherto unknown information on terrorist cells, operating from Boston to San Diego, on behalf of bin Laden, Hamas and Hizzbollah. Mr. Emerson provides mesmerizing first hand accounts of secret terrorist meetings, training, recruitment and above all else--deception of law enforcement and the media--going far beyond the accounts published in his new best-seller, American Jihad: The Terrorists Living Among Us. Consulted by the White House, National Security Council, FBI, Justice Department, Congress and intelligence agencies, Mr. Emerson is in great demand today re as one of the most astute, insightful and knowledgeable experts in the world today on the threat and prospects of militant Islamic terrorism.

The International Intelligence Community
Abstract

Everyone underscores the utility of international intelligence sharing in the war against global terrorism, but few have seriously examined what compromises the United States should make in pursuing parallel national security or foreign policy objectives to secure such cooperation and to avoid creating more terrorists than are killed or captured. The United States, for example, generally champions religious freedom abroad. Should it nonetheless remain silent about the flagrant religious discrimination in Saudi Arabia to elicit at least some cooperation in fighting Al Qaeda or detecting the villains who bombed the Khobar towers? A similar dilemma confronts the United States in Pakistan: should it overlook its disgraceful record on nuclear proliferation and President Pervez Musharraf's autocratic powers in exchange for his assistance in defeating Al Qaeda and shutting down madrassas which breed Islamic terrorists. Mr. Fein's presentation will elaborate an intellectually coherent approach to balancing international intelligence sharing with competing national security and foreign policy goals of the United States.

What Government and Business Intelligence Pros Can Learn From Each Other
Abstract

Conventional wisdom presumes that government intelligence professionals are more advanced than their corporate peers in the sophistication of their techniques and deliverables. In recent years, however, business intelligence practitioners have become arguably more skilled in areas such as developing innovative analytic techniques, delivering intelligence tailored to decisionmakers' needs, and in building closer relationships with corporate intelligence consumers. In this presentation, two professionals who work to help both business and government intelligence professionals improve their analytic skills will discuss the areas in which business and government intelligence can learn from each other, and propose ways in which this exchange of ideas should take place.

Abstract

With dreams of "Trustworthy Computing" and "Pervasive System Security" is there really any commercial OS vendor doing anything to help us get there? am I really safe and at what cost? The international community has become painfully aware that better operating system security is a necessity and not a luxury. Worldwide computer system attacks and compromises are on a sharp rise, but what defenses can help?

Applications and system services must be built on solid, security-focused foundations. Operating Systems must have security built in from the ground up and not have it bolted on as an afterthought. No operating system is perfect or bullet-proof, but there has to be something better.

Syrian Intelligence Tactics in Suppressing the Rise of a New Middle East
Abstract

Three-prong strategy

1) The Iraq Factor
Deep intelligence covers are hiding and assisting Iraqi insurgency. Supplying funds that some of which is channeled through the Commercial Bank of Syria. Also, gold bullion and US dollars left Baghdad three days before the war in trucks is used to supplement the insurgency. I bring up Mustapha al-Tajer story: Killed by Ghazi Kanaan for embezzling Iraqi funds earmarked for insurgency. Syrians intelligence is building Terror schools in the Beka'a valley ready to move into action.

2) Stop at all costs dissidence abroad
Foreign intelligence services monitoring opposition and dissident groups. Afraid that Chalabi-like can exist to bring their downfall from outside. Embassy staff intimidate and unite under "Syrian Cultural Clubs" phenomena that Syrians think it is just so when in fact, they are monitoring and suppressing stations for Syrians in the Diaspora.

3) Intimidate population. Show usefulness.
Interior intelligence services suppress and intimidate the population at large. They also collect information that they us sparsely to convey to western nations to show goodwill. Reality is that there are webs of extremism allowed to operate in Damascus and used to show the Americans that Syrian Ba'athists are useful. They create the enemy, and then kill it to find themselves in the good graces of the international community.

Training
Abstract

Mr. Goldman discusses the role of training and education as it relates to keeping and maintaining intelligence analysts with the proper analytical tools and technology in the asymmetrical threat environment. He sees the expansion of intelligence programs at colleges and universities in the U.S. and Canada, as both a blessing and a curse. Students are entering the field better trained and educated for their career but that their expectations are not always met; meanwhile, government institutions must compete for the best and the brightest students and faculty in a field they once monopolized. Finally, Goldman sees the intelligence field being strengthened by this competition, which he believes may eventually lead to the formal professionalization of the intelligence occupation.

Al-Jihad Bi-al-Mal: If not by your sword, then by your money
Abstract

The Jihad is not only an expression of violent action against the infidels, but comprises diverse acts every Moslem is commanded to perform in sustaining the Jihad. Radical Islamic terror groups use the concept of Jihad Bi-al-Mal (the financial Jihad) to solicit funds from across the Muslim world. Hamas, in particular, citing Quranic verses, promise the rewards of Jihad and Martyrdom to its wealthy and not-so-wealthy financial donors. Hamas social infrastructure is an integral component of its terrorist operation and therefore the financial support transferred to "humanitarian" purposes is funneled directly and indirectly to sustaining the Jihad. International Intelligence cooperation is vital in order to liquidate Hamas financial resources worldwide.

Charles Intriago
Publisher, Money Laundering Alert


 
Biography
One of the leading authorities on money laundering in the world, Charles A. Intriago spent ten years in government service in the United States, as a federal prosecutor in Miami, as chief counsel to the U.S. House of Representatives' Government Operations Subcommittee on Legal and Monetary Affairs, and as special counsel on organized crime to Governor Reubin Askew of Florida. After his government service, he practiced law in Miami and was an equity partner of the international law firm, McDermott, Will & Emery.

In 1989, Mr. Intriago, as founder and president of Alert Global Media, Inc., launched Money Laundering Alert, a Miami-based monthly publication that is the world's leading source of information, guidance and analysis on money laundering and terrorist financing issues, including the money laundering-related provisions of the USA Patriot Act of October 26, 2001.

In 1995, Mr. Intriago launched the website, www.moneylaundering.com, followed by the Spanish language website, www.lavadodinero.com. The websites are leading Internet sources of money laundering information and serve as training resources for banking, governmental and other organizations. They are known widely in government and financial sectors in the world as premier sources of information on money laundering matters. These information sources are read by many leading major banks, securities dealers and other financial institutions, as well as by central banks and regulatory and law enforcement agencies.

Money Laundering Alert's annual international money laundering conference in South Florida is the largest and most acclaimed in the world. The most recent conference, in February 2004, drew 972 attendees from 54 countries. The next one, at the Diplomat Resort & Spa, in Hollywood, Florida, from March 2 to 4, 2005, is on track to draw more than 1,000 attendees.

In 2002, Mr. Intriago founded the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists, which provides certification to persons who work in the anti-money laundering field in the public and private sectors and who pass an examination constructed by an independent firm of psychometricians. As of December 2004, ACAMS had 2,200 members in 91 countries.

Mr. Intriago is often quoted in major newspapers and frequently appears on television programs around the world. In the United States, he has appeared on 60 Minutes, Frontline, CNN and on all networks in connection with money laundering and terrorist financing issues. He is a frequent lecturer, in English and Spanish, on money laundering subjects.

Mr. Intriago is a native of Ecuador and speaks fluent Spanish. He received his law degree from the University of Florida, where he was Editor-in-Chief of the Law Review, and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Florida State University.


Seminar PE7: Sharing Intelligence - Part 1
February 8, 09:00-11:30
Abstract

The 9/11 Commission found that little has been learned since 9/11 about how Al Qaeda gathers, controls and moves its money and finances its operations. The pertinent federal investigative and regulatory agencies have not been given the requisite resources to attack terrorist financing vigorously. The Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation Division is an example. Although it is the finest financial investigative agency in the world, last year it was denied 80 new special agents to be devoted to terrorist financing investigations although they had been recommended by an independent, bipartisan oversight board.

Congress must also accept some of the blame for the slow progress in divining the mysteries of terrorist financing. It has shirked its oversight role and failed to assure that the regulations it required under the USA Patriot Act are issued, implemented and supervised effectively. The Office of Foreign Assets Control has failed to perform its mission effectively, although under its new director, Robert Werner, there is promise that necessary reforms will be achieved. In addition, large segments of the U.S. financial sector, such as the insurance and precious metals industries, are either lacking a federal regulator to monitor compliance with USA Patriot Act obligations or are supervised by the IRS Examination Division, which is woefully understaffed and overwhelmed by its primary mission of examining for tax compliance.

Alireza Jafarzadeh
President, Strategic Policy Consulting, Inc.


 
Biography
Alireza Jafarzadeh is the president of Strategic Policy Consulting, Inc. He is also a FOX News Channel foreign affairs analyst.

Alireza Jafarzadeh is a well-known authority in issues relating to terrorism, and Islamic fundamentalism in Iraq, Iran, and the Middle East; Iran's nuclear weapons program; and its internal political developments, including the anti-government demonstrations, the student movement, and human rights.

The international concerns about Iran's nuclear weapons program has largely arisen from Jafarzadeh's stunning revelations about 7 major previously secret nuclear sites, including the sites in Natanz, Arak, Karaj, Ab-Ali, and Tehran. Jafarzadeh revealed the existence of Natanz uranium enrichment facility, and Arak's heavy water facility in August 2002, Ab-Ali centrifuge testing facility near Tehran in February 2003, two additional nuclear sites near Karaj in May 2003, and two other new nuclear sites in Kolahdouz military complex in Tehran, and Ardekan in July 2003. He unveiled the details of Iran's development of bio-weapons in May 2003, and had previously provided valuable information about the Shahab-3 medium range missile.

On April 27, 2004, Jafarzadeh revealed information that Iran, using some 400 nuclear experts, is now running a secret nuclear weapons program supervised by the military and the Supreme Leader parallel to their overt nuclear energy program. Jafarzadeh had previously unveiled in March, a secret meeting held earlier by Iran's senior officials where they decided to speed up their nuclear weapons program, while faking cooperation with the IAEA.

He first disclosed the details of Iran's involvement in the Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia, in 1997, and the Jewish Community Center bombing in Argentina in 1993.

In November 2003, Jafarzadeh exposed an extensive covert network of the Iranian regime's agents who had been involved, for months, in meddling in the internal affairs of Iraq, seeking to derail the political process and establish a sister Islamic Republic in Iraq.

As an accomplished analyst, Jafarzadeh has frequently appeared on major television and radio broadcasts including Fox News Channel, CNN, MSNBC, CBS Evening News, NBC, VOA, NPR, BBC and WABC to discuss Iran's WMD program and terrorist activities around the world.

Jafarzadeh has published essays in, and been interviewed by, news outlets including New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Baltimore Sun, Chicago Tribune, Washington Times, Los Angeles Times, Christian Science Monitor, USA Today, Philadelphia Inquirer, Boston Globe, Miami Herald, Austin-American Statesman, Time, and Newsweek magazines, Space & Missile, Defense Week, Arms Control Today, and the Financial Times.

Jafarzadeh has lectured in Georgetown University, University of Michigan, and National War College, and has been a frequent speaker at briefings, hearings and luncheons at the US Congress, the United Nations, Chicago Council on Foreign Relations, and the Morning Newsmaker Program at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.

Prior to becoming a contributor for FOX News Channel, and until August 2003, Jafarzadeh acted for a dozen years as the chief congressional liaison and media spokesperson for the US representative office of Iran's parliament in exile, the National Council of Resistance of Iran.

Jafarzadeh earned his Bachelor's degree from the University of Michigan, in Ann Arbor, and his Master's degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Texas, in Austin.

DM4: Nuclear Intelligence
February 9, 15:00-15:45
Abstract

Iran has posed the most serious nuclear challenge to the international community, and many believe that Iran is only one to three years away from getting the nuclear weapons capability. Yet, the intelligence community failed to detect the extent of Iran's nuclear weapons program. The nuclear sites that are now being inspected by the International Atomic Energy Agency were neither detected by the intelligence community nor were declared by the Iranian government.

While looking at the latest status of Iran's nuclear weapons program, Alireza Jafarzadeh will examine the shortcomings both in the way the intelligence community has conducted its work on this issue, as well as how the U.S. policy has affected the quality of information now available on Iran's nuclear program.

Jafarzadeh will look at ways to improve the quality of intelligence as well as ways to contain Iran's nuclear threat.

Spies - Intelligence Agents & Analysts
February 8, 09:00-11:30
Abstract

How can the U.S. Government possibly hope to retain its intelligence and security specialists when private contractors in Iraq are offering them salaries up to $1000 a day? Is the solution better pension benefits, more suitable career tracks, and more flexibility in their assignments? Or is the growth of private security companies the problem? After investing a quarter of a million dollars in training a special forces operator, what will it take to keep that resource on assignment? Congress may have to recognize that very substantial bonuses - in the quarter million dollar per annum range - may have to be paid before covert operatives volunteer to spend years risking their lives behind the lines in hard target countries such as North Korea and Iran. These are but a few of the issues that will be on the table in this Seminar.

Citizen Involvement - An American Tradition
Abstract

From the Minutemen at Concord Bridge and Paul Revere's ride to warn the colonists that "The British are coming," ... to World War II's warning that "Loose Lips Sink Ships!" -- Americans have a tradition of being intimately involved with their government's efforts at keeping its citizens safe and our country free. Today many say that we face a new enemy who intimidates with terror. But terror is as old as man himself. Unfortunately, it is all too familiar to scholars of our history. Britain, France and Spain all used terror, first against our native people, then against each other as they strove to dominate this New World with all its promise and natural resources. Jordan will sketch a brief historical profile of America's struggle with terrorism with special emphasis on where the struggle hits us here at home … and what is being done to neutralize the threat and safeguard our homeland.

Managing Expectations for Better Intelligence Results
Abstract

Communication between a CI group and its internal clients is crucial to successful CI, and often boils down to how well the client understands what actually can be delivered, the research gathering process, when results can be expected, and at what cost. It also depends on how well the CI facilitator understands what the client expects for the investment. Specific key activities can help manage expectations and develop a consistent win-win relationship between CI users and providers. We'll look at which expectations are most important, and how to convey them. We'll talk about how to eliminate senior management's 'get me whatever you can' mentality, and how to develop a mutually beneficial relationship between internal CI users and providers.

Learning objectives:
- Learn which expectations are most important to convey
- Develop a winning relationship with internal CI clients
- Understand how to communicate and effectively manage reasonable expectations

Seminar PE6: View from Abroad - Asia
February 8, 11:00-11:45
Asia
Abstract

Taiwan is a small country with important strategic implication. It occupies key position in the sea-lanes of communication (SLOC), and its major seaport (the Kaohsiung Port) is one of the top five container ports in the world. In addition, Taiwan has Information Technology industry that produces the majority of the laptop computers and world biggest wafer manufacture; the key ingredient for IC chips in the computer. However, in terms of the anti-terrorism awareness, Taiwan is much left behind. Despite its high tech savvy, Taiwan does not have sophisticated export control regime to regulate its high technology products from falling into dubious hands. Taiwan does not participate in the Proliferation Security Initiative (PSI) even though Taiwan has expressed strong desire to be a contributor in this regard. Moreover, Taiwan is also not well prepared against possible airplane hijacking and terrorist acts from the sea attacking its seaport, not to mention about the reform of the various intelligence agencies for jointness in the anti-terrorism campaign.

To ensure the safety of the U.S. homeland security, it is important to integrate Taiwan as a part of this campaign. For many nations around the world, they all face different problems in cooperating with the U.S. for the anti-terrorism campaign. In Taiwan's case, the slow progress is not resulting from the lack of efforts but from the lack of means and knowledge. One of the consequences for Taiwan to be virtually isolated from the international society is that Taiwan also has been deprived of the trend awareness and access to the knowledge for issues of global concern. In all various international agreements and monitoring regimes for the export control, Taiwan has been in none of them. Taiwan usually relies on second hand or third hand information to obtain the necessary knowledge and regulations that come natural to the member countries. Another consequence is that Taiwan is not able to inject its input when norms and regulations are discussed and formed for issues concerning Taiwan dearly. The lack of legal infrastructure and law enforcement in the export control, despite Taiwan is an important export country for dual-use or multiple use technology, has been in large part coming from such international condition.

The lack of jointness of the intelligence in Taiwan reflects more with the governance problem of the newly democratic country than with the inappropriate modus operandi. Streamlining the intelligence flow inevitably will affect many of the already existed intelligence bureaucrats, who were normalized in the authoritarian era - nowadays they are strongly hostile to the newly democratic elected civilian leadership. Those established bureaucrats usually tend to view the jointness as a political campaign to weaken their power base. Thus, the intelligence reform, though extremely important for Taiwan's homeland security, has been politicized from the beginning. This is the obstacle that a joint U.S.-Taiwan effort has to encounter.

The lack of Taiwan's participation of the PSI also hampers the intelligence exchange between Taiwan and other nations sharing similar concern for anti-proliferation campaign. The integration of Taiwan into the anti-terrorism regime has to be the first step for Taiwan. Then the intelligence, law enforcement or other types of cooperation can integrate more naturally. The top-down approach will definitely work better then the bottom-up.

Anti-terrorism is a war on global level that requires no let down and no loopholes in the campaign. Do not let the political complexity compromise the effort. Leave Taiwan out will create just such a loophole.

DM1: Asia: the Next Assessment Crisis
February 9, 08:15-09:00
Asia: the Next Assessment Crisis
Abstract

In Asian policy community today, people tend to focus on immediate issues rather than the dynamics and structures that generate those problems. Consistently maintaining this behavior pattern usually falls into the "crisis management" mode, i.e., focusing on avoiding worsening of the crisis instead of finding solutions to the problems.

Take the Korean Peninsula as an example, the focus now is on the North Korea nuclear weapon/weapon program. But the of the Korean Peninsula actually reflects the worsening problem of the DPRK regime itself, rather than its nuclear weapon/weapon program. If the focus in on the DPRK's nuclear weapons, then the focus should be stopping the DPRK from acquiring the nuclear weapons. If the focus is about the DPRK regime being problem itself, then the focus will be on the behavior of the Pyongyang government.

As for the issue regarding the Taiwan Strait, similar problem arises. If we view the Taiwan Strait issue as the dispute between China and Taiwan, then the focus is on how to manage the cross-Strait problems to avoid military conflicts. Since the contingency is one-side, only China attacking Taiwan is possible and no vice versa. The conflict avoidance usually resort to pressure Taiwan not to provoke China while giving less focus on the Chinese military preparation, since it is difficult to dissuade China due to its strong power.

If we are looking at this issue from a broader angle and, from what Taiwan stands politically, geo-strategically and economically, the conflict in the Taiwan Strait actually indicates the lack of confidence of Beijing government in its legitimacy, the Chinese strategic intention in Asia and the consequence of economic ramification globally. Taiwan's democracy is a problem to Beijing government, because this reminds the Beijing leadership that democracy has a good chance to be practiced in China. Capturing Taiwan will enable China to dominate Asia by cutting off the linkage between Northeast and Southeast Asia, and by forcing the U.S. to retreat from the Asia-Pacific region. Thus, the Taiwan Strait issue is no longer a matter simply about the conflicts between Taiwan and China, but a matter of the prospect of democracy in China and the geo-political order in the Asia-Pacific region.

Asia is now entering a new era, and therefore a new approach is needed to integrate all the developments in this region nuclearization. In addition to the U.S. redeployment of its military presence in East Asia and the rise of Chinese power, there are dramatic changes taking place in Japan, South Korea and Taiwan as well. Old ways of management will fail to solve the problems today; the developments in the Korean Peninsula and the Taiwan Strait issues are two prime examples. How to make a policy effective for creating a new status quo is a challenge to all of us today.

Abstract

In this era of transnational threats and instant financial transfers, "following the money" has become both more difficult and more vital than ever. This presentation will examine how the Treasury Department combines its unique array of financial data with intelligence from across the government to develop operable intelligence for policymakers. These products empower Treasury to take action - ranging from regulations and multilateral best practices to targeted actions such as sanctions and Section 311 of the Patriot Act - against national security threats, including terrorists, drug kingpins, proliferators, and rogue regimes.

Fundamental queries: How can the American criminal justice system deal with crime of such magnitude? Was it intended to do so?

Recent terrorism events increase cogency of query

Crime phenomenon a object of criminal justice system: a spectrum

Single, local crime scenario on the one end
War crime scenario on the other end
Crime escalation generally plus terrorism has criminal justice system enter into war scenario

Capability of the system: historical journey
The "Mayberry" time
Social institutions responsible for civilized society
Criminal justice system an exceptional support
Single, local crime scenario in most basic form

Abdication by responsible social institutions
Civilizing agent void created
Crime increases

Criminal justice system to solve society's ills
Deal with increased crime
Become primary civilizing institution

Criminal justice system not designed to be civilizing agent

As crime phenomenon moves from single, local crime scenario to war scenario, criminal justice system less capable of dealing with

Terrorist event responsibility confirms system's entry into war scenario realm and reduced capability to deal with the same

System dealing with war scenario facts with crime scenario legal tools

Recent terrorism material support prosecution and indicia of system's inability to deal well with terrorism war scenario (Saudi student at University of Idaho in Moscow, Idaho)

Normative or statutory indicators
Terrorism material support statutes ill-suited
Constitutional norms incongruent

Procedural indicators

Biowarfare Intel
Abstract

As so clearly articulated by President George W. Bush, the most serious threat facing the United States (U.S.) in the coming years is the possibility that a radical terrorist group will obtain and use Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). We know that Al-Qa'eda, in particular, is devoting significant effort to acquiring the means necessary to strike American and Western interests with WMD. While plenty of evidence exists to demonstrate its intentions with regard to nuclear, radiological and chemical weapons, today's subject will address the very real and growing likelihood that Islamist terrorists one day soon will have the means to attack us with a Biological Weapon (BW).

Compounding the seriousness of the BW threat from al-Qa'eda and a few other like-minded groups, is the ubiquity of BW knowledge, materials and stocks around the world; globalization and the spread of high tech dual-use equipment makes it increasingly difficult to stop the proliferation of these deadly weapons, despite determined efforts to police international agreements and restrictions.

New and emerging threats that conceivably could enhance the lethality and communicability of some of the deadliest viruses known to man, such as smallpox, Ebola, SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) or even influenza, include genetic manipulation and the deliberate creation in the laboratory of recombinant forms of some of these terrible diseases. Huge secret BW production programs, such as that which existed in the Soviet Union, may or may not have completely ceased operation; in any case, experts such as former Biopreparat Deputy Ken Alibek, warn that leftover stocks as well as out-of-work former BW scientists continue to pose the risk of proliferation, whether state-directed or not. One of the hallmarks of rogue states such as Iran and Syria is the existence of government-sponsored WMD programs, including BW.

Plentiful evidence from courtroom testimonies of al-Qa'eda members, captured documents, videotapes and abandoned al-Qa'eda safehouses shows that the al-Qa'eda network continues to seek a biological weapons capability. The mastermind of 9/11, Khalid Sheikh Muhammed (KSM), for example, was arrested at the home of Pakistani microbiologist, Dr. Qadoos Khan on March 23, 2003. KSM's laptop computer allegedly contained documents related to biochemical weapons such as botulinum, salmonella toxins, cyanide and anthrax. Hambali, the operational head of the Jemaah Islamiyyah terrorist organization and principal al-Qa'eda contact in Southeast Asia, was working to open an al-Qa'eda bioweapons plant and anthrax program in Kandahar, Afghanistan, prior to his August 2003 arrest. Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the Jordanian terrorist currently wreaking havoc in Iraq and who recently pledged loyalty to al-Qa'eda, oversaw a training camp in Afghanistan in 2000, which specialized in chemical and biological weapons. Prior to the beginning of Operation Iraqi Freedom in March 2003, al-Zarqawi had established an enclave in the Kurdish region of northern Iraq where he helped establish a new poison and explosives training camp. In January 2003, British security officials discovered traces of the deadly biological toxin, ricin, in an apartment in North London.

Despite all the best efforts of the U.S. and other concerned allies, the BW threat not only remains serious, but is spreading. Whereas formerly, only state-run, government-funded programs had the capability, knowledge and funds to pose a BW threat to the world, today that threat has spread to sub-national groups, including Islamist terrorists. The challenge facing the world is to prevent such groups as al-Qa'eda from reaching a level of capability, which would permit them to unleash the unimaginable horrors of a SARS or Ebola plague upon thousands, if not millions, of innocent people.

Computer Forensics
Abstract

Due to the wide availability and easy access to electronic equipment, criminals have gone "high-tech" and are using these resources to enhance and maintain their illegal enterprises. Soon after the 9/11 attacks, information was received that the hijackers used computers and the Internet to communicate. The skills of computer forensic examiners became an important tool during the investigation and the collection of intelligence regarding al-Qa'eda operations. Given this new reality, law enforcement has had to become just as resourceful by creating initiatives such as the Regional Computer Forensic Laboratory (RCFL) Program, where law enforcement is leveraging technology to comprehend digital evidence. RCFLs combine the talents and resources of law enforcement agencies at all levels. They increase law enforcement's ability to investigate criminals and detect and prevent acts of terrorism. During this session, we will discuss the importance of the proper collection, preservation, and exploitation of intelligence gathered from computer systems and other digital devices.

RCFLs are a critical component in the FBI?'s effort to support state and local law enforcement. There are six operational RCFLs in the U.S. that are providing free computer forensic examinations and expertise to the law enforcement agencies within their service areas. By the end of this year, that number is expected to increase to thirteen. An overview of the RCFL program will be provided that will include the locations and service areas of each RCFL throughout the country.

David Major
Vice President
Centre for Counterintelligence and Security Studies


 
Biography
David Major has made a 40-year commitment to the practice of counterintelligence, having served in top leadership roles at the FBI in counterintelligence as a Supervisory Special Agent, as well as on the National Security Council as the Director of Counterintelligence, Intelligence and Security Programs. Major was the first FBI official ever to be appointed to the NSC.

During his employment at the FBI from 1970 to 1993, Major became a nationally recognized counterintelligence and security/countermeasures technical expert, strategic planner, practitioner, advocate and spokesman for national counterintelligence and security countermeasures programs. During his time with the NSC from 1985 to 1987, he was involved in every aspect of these disciplines, with extensive operational experience at the highest level of government. While at the NSC, Major was responsible for formulating the policies and programs which led to the first and only mass expulsion of Soviet intelligence officers (80 KGB and GRU) from the United States in October 1986.

Following his work at the NSC, Major returned to the FBI where he was in charge of the section within the Intelligence Division of FBI Headquarters responsible for managing all intelligence and counterintelligence strategic and operational analysis, policy and plans formulation, budget formulation, resource management, automated data processing, and counterintelligence training of FBI, DoD and counterintelligence community personnel. To ensure that the counterintelligence programs were integrated into the Executive Agencies' decision-making process, Major served as the architect for the Counterintelligence Operations Board in 1989 (now known as the National Counterintelligence Operations Board). From 1988 until his retirement in 1993, Major was the FBI's principal representative in the national intelligence policy formulation process. As such, he was the principal FBI drafter for the National Security Review (NSR) 18 and National Security Directive (NSD) 47. Major was the principal architect of the National Security Threat List (approved by the Attorney General in December 1991) to meet the ever-changing challenges of the foreign intelligence threat in the 1990s. The National Security Threat List strategy became the primary document which directly governs all DoD counterintelligence programs.

Major's deep and persistent commitment to training future counterintelligence professional leaders from the DoD, FBI and CIA to think strategically about counterintelligence led him to formulate a new counterintelligence community course, "Strategic Approaches to Counterintelligence." This course was the first step in the development of a diverse gamut of courses Major later designed and currently conducts for the Intelligence Community.

Counterintelligence Methods and Applications
Abstract

Any serious examination of intelligence reveals its impact on international relations; however, it is essential to also recognize the corresponding role of counterintelligence as an essential component of national strategy. In today's war on terrorism, the role of counterintelligence is at the front lines of identifying, penetrating and neutralizing the terrorist threat. All terrorist attacks are preceded by intelligence collection; and, the tools used to identify and counter espionage are the same tools, methods and applications required to defeat terrorist organizations.

As an example of how essential it will be for the US to use traditional counterintelligence methods to address the terror threat that it faces today, this Seminar will discuss how the British Security Service (MI-5) used them to play the leading role in breaking the back of the terrorism war in Ireland. How MI-5's methods apply to our society will be part of an analysis of US CI that includes a review of the legal and ethical conflict between the requirement to safeguard individual rights, and the need to protect the community, social structure and national security. Also to be addressed are the foundations of, and the relationships between, counterintelligence, internal security, intelligence, security/countermeasures programs and law enforcement.

Spies - Intelligence Agents & Analysts
Abstract

If finding people with the right skills, knowledge, and personality traits -- not to mention the willingness -- to be an intelligence analyst is a science, then keeping them happy and productive once they're hired is definitely an art. This is especially true for Federal intelligence agencies, which frequently are limited in the salaries they can offer, engaged in activities that do not allow for explicit resumes (or book deals), and subject to sudden shifts of emphasis that can leave capable analysts stranded on the shores of subjects no longer worked. In this session Mrs. Maklowski will discuss these issues from the perspective of the National Security Agency, which currently is engaged in its largest IA hiring effort in nearly two decades. She will cover the qualifications and aptitudes that NSA seeks in its prospective intelligence analysts; describe some of the ways the Agency recruits analysts, along with related issues such as student programs and recruiting for diversity; and briefly review NSA's hiring processes. Mrs. Maklowski will then focus on the training and career development programs that NSA has created and uses to keep analysts growing and moving ahead as Signals Intelligence professionals, with emphasis on the issues that have the greatest impact on analysts' decisions to stay or leave. She will conclude with a brief look at the work NSA has already begun to develop cross-Intelligence Community standards for intelligence analysts and at how the Agency is preparing for the future of analysis.

Seminar PE4: Reforming the Intelligence Community
February 8, 10:45-11:30
Abstract

The practices of the medical profession can provide many ideas for reform of intelligence agency processes. Recent Congressional reforms have emphasized primarily reforms of intelligence community organizational structure. Yet process issues are as important as organizational structure, if not more so. Structure and process work together in a complementary fashion, with processes bridging any gaps that exist in structure. In the end, structural changes such as those recommended by the 9/11 Commission and implemented by Congress will require corresponding changes to existing processes in order to ensure the effective functioning of the intelligence community. Unfortunately, debates over intelligence reform have not focused on the procedural reforms that will be necessary to improve intelligence community performance. This presentation is intended to contribute to the discussion regarding possible procedural reforms by identifying some of the many ideas for intelligence reform that can be found in medical practices. Derived from an article co-authored by Dr. Jonathan Clemente--a practicing physician and expert in the history of medical intelligence--that is due to be published in the International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence later this year, this presentation will outline a number of procedural reforms modeled from medicine that could improve many aspects of intelligence practice including: the prioritization of collection resources; the detection of denial and deception; the accuracy of analysis; and the quality of information flowing from intelligence agencies to national security decision makers.

DM5: Are We Losing our Edge on Technical Collection?
February 10
08:15-09:00
Abstract

In the asymmetric war on terrorism, the enemy hides and attacks while we are in the open and must defend. In this scenario, our "offense" is more of an active defense - we strike when we have actionable intelligence about the enemy. The cost of satellites and current collection methods is already high, and getting much higher. From what is basically a reactive stance, two things limit our ability to succeed: 1) quality of the intelligence collected, and 2) the ability to take action intelligence a timely manner. Current technical collection systems were not designed to address a highly decentralized and distributed foe. Worse yet is how current information systems act on collected information. They are too slow to react and adapt. These shortcomings will be discussed. Additionally, a completely novel and mature solution to these shortcomings will be presented. A solution capable of taking advantage of open source information and other structured and unstructured data from collection sources at the same time.

Plenary Session PL2:
Open Source Intelligence and 21st Century Threats
February 10, 16:00-16:45
Abstract

The recently approved intelligence reform legislation requires the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) to ensure that the intelligence community makes efficient and effective use of open source information and analysis. This special plenary presentation will address how anyone in the traditional intelligence community - or in the public safety community or companies - can systematically locate, select, organize, retrieve, analyze, and disseminate useful open source intelligence (OSINT). The speaker will emphasize how to "separate the wheat from the chaff," especially concerning the torrents of information besieging analysts on such pressing 21st century threats as weapons of mass destruction, terrorism, and insurgency.

Also in the new reform bill is the sense of Congress that the DNI should establish an intelligence center to coordinate collection, analysis, production, and dissemination of OSINT. The speaker will address whether such a center is necessary, and if so, how it might function to significantly improve the use of OSINT with regard to major threats. Also to be discussed is how electronically networked experts in the private sector could collaborate to substantially supplement secret and proprietary intelligence through such activities as building unclassified foundation databases on major threat topics; conducting alternative analysis; and providing strategic warning on global threats.

February 8, 10:50-11:30
Technology Challenges, Intelligence and the 21st Century
Abstract

We must come to grips with the inevitable fading of US technological superiority in an increasingly dangerous and sophisticated global economy. That global economy and its dispersed network has become the "tool of the weak" where groups with limited resources and less sophisticated capabilities can compete or even outmatch American capabilities. Technology advances in our intelligence community have not kept pace with the more diverse, unconventional (and non-static) threat. Nor have we produced technology solutions with the attributes of full spectrum attack; horizontal and vertical integration; assessments of effects achieved vice targets attrited; and, a comprehensive understanding of our adversary (moral, mental and physical domains). We must structure our technology investment strategy against our hardest problems of transnational terrorism, homeland security, participation in military operations and indications and warning to prevent surprise. Because of the inherently unpredictable effects of major technological changes in the coming decade and the potential synergies across emerging technological sectors, it is critical for US intelligence that American industry lead the development of next-generation intelligence technology to regain lost superiority. Waiting for another disaster to point out our shortcomings and generate programmatic responses is not a strategy.

Yehoshuah Mizrachi
Director, Operation Shiloh


 
Biography
Yehoshuah Mizrachi is the founder and Program Director of Operation Shiloh - the Israeli Counter-Terrorism Training for American Civilians (http://www.opshiloh.com).

In January 2002 Mr. Mizrachi was yards away from a homicide bombing in downtown Jerusalem. Reflecting upon this experience, Mr. Mizrachi recognized that Israeli citizens have a well-rehearsed, almost instinctive reaction to terror attacks. This collective knowledge base regarding prevention of, and response to, mass casualty terror attacks have been gleaned over the last 80 years of hard and bloody experience.

In light of the fact that such attacks are likely to recur in the US, he recognized the need for an Israeli-based curriculum designed for American civilians that teaches terror prevention and response techniques appropriate for civilians at large. The result was the OpShiloh training doctrine.

For almost a year, Mr. Mizrachi developed the OpShiloh curriculum, working closely with the IDF. The first group of American trainees came through the course in July 2003.

In July 2004, OpShiloh announced the development of a modified US-based training curriculum.

Mr. Mizrachi holds a BA from Georgetown University.


Seminar PE8: Getting the Public Involved

Civilians: America's Secret Weapon in Homeland Defense
Abstract

Intelligence estimates indicate that additional mass casualty terror attacks like 9/11 are very likely on American soil, and perhaps soon. Additionally, there have been hundreds of documented hostile surveillance incidents against Jewish and Christian soft targets around the US.

Aside from confusing pronouncements warning American citizens to 'be especially alert' while simultaneously warning them go about their normal routines, there is very little tangible information available to American citizens as to how - precisely - to be 'alert.'

In the absence of guidance, the public seems to vacillate between complacency on the on hand and hysteria on the other. Yet between these extremes lies the golden mean - realistic threat assessment and response.

This presentation will explore what practical options exist for citizens; whether is there a role for citizens in homeland defense; and how citizen programs integrate into the broader homeland defense schema.

Presentation to be followed by question and answer session.

Seminar PE6: View from Abroad
Britain
February 8, 09:00-10:35
Abstract

Nature of threats (WMD, terrorism, crime non state actors) has dramatically increased the centrality of the role to be played for the foreseeable future by intelligence in policy making and operations.

It is much more difficult than in the past to distinguish between strategic and operational intelligence and arguably unhelpful to do so as it is the purpose to which intelligence is applied that matters. But the big picture is in danger of being forced out/ignored by focus on day-to-day developments and operations. Absence of context and underlying analysis of the drivers and implications of an emerging big picture can lead to unforced errors of policy, which cumulatively, can be dangerous.

Strategic assessment, which brings together open source as well as secret source information, remains as important as ever. Is it currently getting the resources or the attention it deserves either from the intelligence community or the policy maker? The difficulty of understanding what is going on makes this task more, not less important.

Robustness of the intelligence assessment is an issue. How easy does the intelligence community make it for the busy policy maker to crack the professional code which indicates the degree of confidence to be attached to a given interpretation or judgment? How influenced is the policy maker by preconceived ideas or policy goals? Is the dialogue between the two sufficient or frank enough? How close should the intelligence community and the policy maker be to each other?

When it comes to operations, is the whole community of users being properly catered for? Channels for the flow of intelligence for military use are well organized and understood. But in an age of network global criminality with a capacity for surprise and potentially devastating direct action against civilian populations, there is an additional vast range of civilian agencies and users with an operational need to know. Getting this right is a huge challenge and there is some way to go.

International cooperation seems a natural response to global threats. But how much can we expect from it?

LaserCard Optical Memory Card in U.S. and Other Government Programs
Abstract

LaserCard optical memory card is the most widely used secure, biometric-based ID technology in the U.S. Homeland Security market. In North America as a whole, more than 20 million people in the U.S.A., Canada and Mexico have been issued an optical memory card for border crossing and residency applications. As a result, the NAFTA region boasts the largest Homeland Security biometric ID card population in the world with no known case of the optical card's security having been compromised.

The governments of Italy and Saudi Arabia have also demanded the security of optical memory card for their national ID programs, which play a key role in their Homeland Security, and both have added an IC chip to the card for e-government applications.

Optical memory card is specified for these Homeland Security applications based on three key characteristics which are unequalled by any other card technology - security, durability, and high data storage capacity. In addition, a full suite of international standards defines methods for the transportability of data (such as biometric images of face and fingerprints) and interoperability of cards and reading systems between countries.

The more than 1,000 LaserCard optical memory inspection systems purchased by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and its Canadian equivalent, comply with these standards and are fully capable of authenticating and reading any other nation's ICAO-compliant optical card. This complete border security system is fully functional, available today and proven in the field.

Just such a system could be assisting with Homeland Security issues immediately in strife-torn areas, such as Iraq. It is impossible to fraudulently alter data stored on an optical memory card and there is no known incidence of a working optical card's having been counterfeited. Thus undesirables would have no opportunity to penetrate the security perimeter, such as that surrounding the "Green Zone" in Baghdad or Armed Forces bases, either by creating a counterfeit card or by impersonating the legitimate holder of an authentic card.


Future trends:

Several nations have acknowledged the fundamental security provided by optical memory in the Homeland Security environment. Now, increasingly, we will see the requirement to couple this key security strength with the convenience of RFID, especially at land borders where volume of border crossers is high. In this scenario, the RFID can "pre-notify" the inspection system of the arrival of the cardholder, so that watch list checks can be carried out, in the background, prior to the final card authentication and ID verification processes.

Also, we are seeing the emergence of a requirement to achieve transportability of biometrics across national and system boundaries. It is generally acknowledged that the most effective way of achieving this is by carrying original images of face, fingerprints, irises, etc, on the ID card. The only card technology available to deliver on this requirement, without compromising on resolution and therefore accuracy, is optical memory card.

Hon. Dutch Ruppersberger
US Congressman, MD, 2nd District


 
Biography
Congressman Dutch Ruppersberger is serving his first term in the United States House of Representatives representing the citizens of Maryland's 2nd District. Congressman Ruppersberger is known as a consensus builder who works with Members from both sides of the aisle to get results for Maryland and the nation.

In what Congressional Quarterly called "a coup", Congressman Ruppersberger was the first Democratic freshman ever to be appointed to the powerful House Select Committee on Intelligence. The committee oversees the collection and analysis of intelligence information from all around the world to ensure our national security and prevent potential crisis situations - especially terrorist activity.

Congressman Ruppersberger was hand-picked by the Democratic Leadership and named an Assistant Whip. In this prestigious position he meets regularly with the House leadership to help set legislative priorities and to ensure the passage of key measures.

Congressman Ruppersberger serves on the Government Reform Committee, the investigative arm of Congress, where he works to prevent government fraud and waste and to craft reforms to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of government programs. The Congressman was also elected by his freshman Democratic peers to represent them on the Democratic Steering and Policy Committee.

Congressman Ruppersberger is working hard in Washington to create jobs and rebuild our economy in Maryland and across the country. He is dedicated to improving healthcare for everyone and helping seniors by providing them with quality, affordable and accessible healthcare and prescription drugs. The Congressman considers one of his highest priorities to improve the security of our homeland and get our first responders the money they need to protect our communities and our families.

Maryland's 2nd District includes parts of Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Anne Arundel County and Harford County. It is a vital center of trade and commerce for the state and national economy as it includes Baltimore-Washington International Airport, the Port of Baltimore and thousands of businesses and manufacturing concerns dependent on these international gateways. The 2nd is also home to the National Security Agency, Fort Meade, Aberdeen Proving Grounds, and other installations essential to the country's national security.

Congressman Ruppersberger has spent the last 17 years serving his community as an elected official. Before being elected to the 100th Congress, he was the Baltimore County Executive from 1994 to 2002. Under his leadership, Baltimore County was named one of the nation's four best-managed counties by Governing Magazine in 2001 and is still one of only 19 counties nationally which continue to receive a triple-A bond rating from all three of the country's bond rating agencies. Prior to serving as County Executive, Congressman Ruppersberger served nine years on the Baltimore County Council and was twice elected as council chairman.

Congressman Ruppersberger chose a political career after a near-fatal car accident in 1975 while investigating a drug trafficking case as a State's Attorney. With luck and the dedication of doctors at the University of Maryland's renowned Shock Trauma center, he survived. After recovering the young investigative prosecutor decided to run for public office to help others and to repay Shock Trauma for saving his life. Today, he remains an active supporter of the hospital, serving as Vice Chairman of the hospital's Board of Visitors.

A native of Baltimore City, Congressman Ruppersberger spent his summers as a lifeguard in Ocean City. He attended Baltimore City College and the University of Maryland at College Park, where he played varsity lacrosse. He earned his Juris Doctorate from the University Of Baltimore Law School.

What Government and Business Intelligence Pros Can Learn From Each Other
Abstract

Conventional wisdom presumes that government intelligence professionals are more advanced than their corporate peers in the sophistication of their techniques and deliverables. In recent years, however, business intelligence practitioners have become arguably more skilled in areas such as developing innovative analytic techniques, delivering intelligence tailored to decisionmakers' needs, and in building closer relationships with corporate intelligence consumers. In this presentation, two professionals who work to help both business and government intelligence professionals improve their analytic skills will discuss the areas in which business and government intelligence can learn from each other, and propose ways in which this exchange of ideas should take place.

Abstract

More than 80% of companies connected to the Internet experience a disruption in business due to a worm or virus, with 40% of these respondents also experiencing at least one denial of service attack.

V-Secure suggests a panel, which will address Cyber Threats and the way to deal with them through global cooperation between governments, vendors and service providers.

- Cyber Security has become a global concern
- Cyber threats are a major concern for government and commercial organizations alike
- Possible damages include, financial, reputation, image, breach of commercial confidential information, and national security
- Attending to these concerns requires cooperation between vendors and policy makers
- Appropriate strategy towards protection against cyber threats requires planning, cooperation between various constituents, regulation, enforcement and technology innovation
- Appropriate protection means still letting the "good guys" in, enabling global connectivity, but properly protecting against cyber attacks
- The layered approach towards security - a concerted effort in various parts of the infrastructure, including appropriate organizational policies, structure and enforcement.

Technology Aiding Intelligence Collection
Abstract

Accurate, reliable and detailed intelligence is a crucial to security operations on local and national levels, yet is extremely difficult to obtain. It is the product of a structured methodology that includes the collection of raw information, its processing and analysis, decision making based on the analysis, distribution to a defined list of recipients, and storage in databases in a determined format.

Since the events of 9/11, terror threats have escalated as never before. Recent intelligence points to declared targets that include public transportation and facilities at which large-scale events are held (stadiums, for example), where the human toll resulting from an attack would be extremely high, and the effect on public morale severe. In order to substantially decrease the probability of several types of attack and thus reduce security risks, it is essential to perform effective security processing of the relevant population (travelers, spectators, visitors, etc.) – concerning whom very little or no advance information is available – before they enter the facility or board aircraft or trains.

By implementing the structured methodology described above on the one hand, and enhancing each of its stages in terms of accuracy and speed on the other hand, we can obtain high quality results: Information concerning a random population may be gathered in several ways – collecting the basic information by employing extremely accurate automated document reading technologies; through the examination of appearance and behavior by trained security agents, advanced biometric processing and more. The collected information may be processed and analyzed using sophisticated, high-performance positive rule engines; the analysis results are then transferred to decision makers, allowing them to arrive at well-based conclusions. Intelligence is distributed on a need-to-know basis (to security agents, command and control centers, emergency forces, etc.). The data is also used to update existing databases and where relevant – to construct new ones, enabling efficient retrieval in the future.

In the case of surveillance systems, the information may be gathered through use of innovative sensors such as passive electro-optic sensors, super-resolution cameras and more that will enable the system to detect intruders or any unauthorized activity both within the perimeter area as well as at a predefined distance from it. The information gathered by the sensors may be integrated into the Command and Control system, and some images may also be displayed in 3D. Security forces are thus provided with additional time to effectively respond to the threat and take appropriate action.

POLITICO-LEGAL ISSUES ARISIN FROM THE WAR ON TERROR
Abstract

(1) GUANTANAMO BAY

The detention of unlawful combatants at Guantanamo Bay USMC facility fully justified, under the Laws of War, and applicable federal and military law. Neither Al Qaeda nor the Taliban conducted operations in accordance with the Laws of War and their prisoners forfeit any claim to POW status under Geneva Convention III. Reciprocity principle considered.

They are not 'detained without trial' – prisoners in time of war are not tried, save for specific war crimes. We should have greater confidence in military justice and reject grandstanding criticisms from within the military justice community.

National Security lawyers need to get out there and explain the issues to the media – the War on Terror is quite unlike any other conflict. It poses unique legal challenges. The Administration’s response has been both coherent and correct. A-Gs John Ashcroft and Judge Gonzales have done a fine job.

(2) AUTHORITY FOR WAR

UN authority for hostilities is clearly not required, any more than League of Nations authority was required for WW2. I will examine State Practice since 1945, concentrating on the Permanent Members of the Security Council; the glaring weaknesses of the UN Charter, a badly drafted if not botched instrument, and the case foe US withdrawal from the United Nations.

Better practice would have been to declare war on Afghanistan and Iraq, with 9-11 as the casus belli in each case.

(3) ABU GHRAIB

Serious counter-intelligence failure. Fake photos should have been exposed and CBS taken to task within days of 60 Minutes going to air. Real danger of a failure of military justice arising from the botched prosecutions of the 372nd MPC, who were set up. Real issue at Abu Ghraib is not US ‘abuse’ but who set up the operation and why. The anti-US and anti-UK smear operations were linked - intelligence responses compared. British intelligence failed in its duty as an ally to alert the US to the fabrication of some of the photos, given that the US and British fakes were fabricated at the same time. Historic parallel with My Lai and SDECE narcotics operations in South Vietnam, modeled on earlier operations against the British Army.

Global Risk Aversion: Role of the Corporate Intelligence Unit
Abstract

Government intelligence requirements have historically blended with aspects of corporate affairs, and will likely continue to do so in the future. From the corporate side, those businesses directly linked to the government or military have become involved with intelligence requirements, leaving those companies without such involvement in the dark. Due to restrictions on both sides of the public and private sector, collaboration with regard to national intelligence tasking and sharing strategic information is not always a viable solution. Such separations then require the government intelligence functions to include business acumen to their talent pools, and similarly corporations must enhance their fundamental intelligence capabilities.

To date, however, many U.S. companies remain very conservative and unwilling to embrace more comprehensive efforts in collection and analysis, typically limiting such action to focus on competitors. Many of the government agencies remain conservative and unwilling to embrace realistic efforts to hire valuable individuals from the private sector to facilitate the business or economic factors of intelligence and national policy.

Globalization of economies will require a quicker awakening to embrace the skills that understand more than competitive markets and include topical issues related to foreign culture, religions of the world, economies, social-political structures or movements, and emerging threats. Adding to those needs will be new specialists in the public sector who can rapidly recruit assets, collect in multiple environments, conduct analysis, and correlate the intelligence to business issues and national economic security.

Abstract

There is an unspoken understanding among interrogators. If someone is smart enough to learn Chinese or Russian, they should be smart enough to persuade someone to talk. An interrogator who has to resort to violence to get cooperation is just showing that he doesn't have what it takes. Call it an egotistical method to stay on the straight and narrow. The concern has always been that infantrymen with prisoners taken in the heat of battle will dispense with the niceties and pull out their field telephone, complete with it handy electrical generator, and we interrogators would be painted with the same brush.

That was all before the War to Defend Western Civilization from Jihad, know by some as the Global War on Terror.

I went to Baghdad as an intelligence contractor in April 2004 confident of the superiority of the "Smarts-over-Smacks" method. But after close contact with an enemy that holds no code of civility, an enemy who is eager to kill both us and the Iraqis with the courage to work with us, an enemy who is capable of great feats of emotional manipulation, an enemy whose ultimate goal is a World map painted Islamic green, there comes a time to put aside our collective narcissism and question our underlying assumptions regarding torture, interrogation, and what it takes to win.

Stop Pandering to American People
Abstract

Public support for the intelligence community requires the public to believe the community is competent and honest and not being misused by the government for political purposes. When the public discovers that a government institution has not leveled with them the consequences can lead to mission failure. Trento outlines examples of how a lack of candor has done crippling damage to US policy throughout our history and how it relates today. He will reveal for the first time new details of the Reagan/Bush Administration's relationship with Saddam and US relations with Saudi Arabia that exacerbated our future problems with Iraq and al Qaeda. He will make the case that the CIA's misuse by the Bush Administration in allowing certain anti-terrorism successes to be made public prematurely prevented British Intelligence from fully exploiting high-level al Qaeda officials in custody. Trento will also discuss how public claims by the Administration of the CIA's role in shutting down the Kahn network are without foundation. He will argue that such exaggerations and claims from the White House will have the effect of undermining the post 9.11 public unity in support of intelligence operations as the situation in affected regions continue to degenerate.

The Media and National Security: Views of an Intelligence Officer Turned Journalist
Abstract

The War on Terror (WOT) is unlike the wars with which most Americans are familiar. This is a war that demands secrecy, a war that is and must be fought in the shadows and the dark places where our terrorist enemies live. It is also a war that will be won or lost on the nation's ability to collect, analyze, act upon and protect secret intelligence. So how do we balance the public's right to know (and from a homeland defense perspective, a "need to know") certain vital information about the WOT and the status of the nation's homeland defense initiatives?

Dan Verton -- a former U.S. Marine Corps intelligence officer -- will discuss his experience as someone who has gone from being an officer entrusted to protect vital national secrets to a journalist who's job is to keep the public informed on what its government is doing in its name. Verton, an award-winning journalist and author, finds it to be a balancing act that he sometimes finds difficult to perform. During this presentation, he'll share his detailed experiences from both sides of this issue.

Intelligence Technology
Abstract

Chaos is a common term used to represent extreme confusion, disorder, and disarray. Much of the intelligence production process used throughout law enforcement, the intelligence community, and other investigative organizations is based on accessing, combining, analyzing, and reporting on data that comes from multiple sources in different formats spanning across many systems. The chaos introduced from variations in content, formats, spellings, errors, and other incompatibilities makes it very difficult to understand and detect the patterns in the data. As new systems and technologies are introduced into marketplace, they offer better methods standardize, classify, clean-up, disambiguate, and provide better clarity on the data. This paper discusses a number of chaotic factors associated with data and novel techniques and approaches for clarifying their use in proactive analytics with a specific focus on the use network diagramming and visual charting.

DM5: Are We Losing our Edge on Technical Collection?
February 10
08:15-09:00
Abstract

In the asymmetric war on terrorism, the enemy hides and attacks while we are in the open and must defend. In this scenario, our "offense" is more of an active defense - we strike when we have actionable intelligence about the enemy. The cost of satellites and current collection methods is already high, and getting much higher. From what is basically a reactive stance, two things limit our ability to succeed: 1) quality of the intelligence collected, and 2) the ability to take action intelligence a timely manner. Current technical collection systems were not designed to address a highly decentralized and distributed foe. Worse yet is how current information systems act on collected information. They are too slow to react and adapt. These shortcomings will be discussed. Additionally, a completely novel and mature solution to these shortcomings will be presented. A solution capable of taking advantage of open source information and other structured and unstructured data from collection sources at the same time.

Earthquakes Up to 4.9 Strike Near L.A.
Sep 22 5:20 PM US/Eastern

 

 

METTLER, Calif.

A series of earthquakes ranging up to magnitude 4.9 shook an area north of Los Angeles on Thursday. There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

The temblors in the San Joaquin Valley about 70 miles northwest of Los Angeles began with a magnitude-4.0 jolt that was quickly followed by the 4.9 at 1:24 p.m., according to the U.S. Geological Survey in Pasadena.

Seismologists recorded at least five aftershocks ranging between magnitudes 3 and 3.7.

"The only things we're getting reported is that some items toppled over on shelves, but we've gotten no reports of damages or injuries," said Kern County fire Capt. Doug Johnston.

Johnston said the area contains mostly dairies and farmlands.

Kohl, Feingold back Roberts

Two Jewish senators helped send John Roberts’ nomination to the full Senate.

Sens. Russell Feingold and Herb Kohl, both Democrats from Wisconsin, said Thursday that Roberts’ pledge to adhere to legal precedent motivated them to join Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) as the only three of eight Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee to vote for Roberts. The committee approved Roberts’ nomination as chief justice of the United States by a 13-5 vote, and it now moves to the full Senate. Among those opposed were two Jewish Democrats, Sens. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), who worried that Roberts’ pledge on precedent did not necessarily mean he would uphold Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 ruling that legalized abortion. A few liberal Jewish groups opposed Roberts.

The Reform movement expressed reservations about his candidacy without formally opposing him, while the Conservative and Orthodox streams endorsed him.

Committee chairman Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Pa.), who also is Jewish, had tough questions for Roberts on Roe v. Wade, but ultimately led all 10 Republicans on the committee in approving him.

Congressmen urge Swiss on ‘Red Diamond’

Two Jewish congressmen are circulating a “Dear Colleague” letter urging the Swiss government to designate a neutral emergency symbol in addition to the red cross and red crescent.

Reps. Gary Ackerman (D-N.Y.) and Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) say the Swiss proposal for a neutral red diamond would allow Israel’s Magen David Adom, and other agencies that reject the cross and crescent for religious reasons, to obtain protections guaranteed by the Geneva Convention to bearers of those symbols.

The letter to the Swiss embassy in Washington urges Switzerland to resist those who oppose plans to reconvene the parties to the Geneva Convention, a power reserved to Switzerland.

The letter says opponents of the red diamond scheme want to postpone such an arrangement until the Israeli-Palestinian issue is resolved. The convention defines attacks on individuals and vehicles carrying the designated symbols as war crimes.

Muslim nations have defeated attempts to accept the red star of David used by Israel’s emergency services.
