Re: <nettime> TIPs designed for Domestic Spygaming

"The terrorist threat to America takes many forms, has
many places to hide, and is often invisible," Bush

Operation TIPS - the Terrorism Information and
Prevention System - will be a nationwide program
giving millions of American truckers, letter carriers,
train conductors, ship captains, utility employees,
and others a formal way to report suspicious terrorist
activity. Operation TIPS, a project of the U.S.
Department of Justice, will begin as a pilot program
in 10 cities that will be selected.


Al-qaeda has a large complicated financial network.
Its goals are to destroy the American way of life.


Last week, the S&P 500 and the Dow suffered their
largest weekly drops since the market reopened
following the September attacks. 


Mr. Ebbers responded, as he did to some 30 other
questions: "On the instructions of counsel, I
respectfully decline to answer on the basis of my
Fifth Amendment constitutional rights."

Mr. Ebbers also declined to say whether he was a
former WorldCom executive or a United States citizen.


A federal appeals court ruled today that an American
accused of fighting for the Taliban could be held, at
least for now, without access to a lawyer and without
being charged.


It appears as if Mr. Ebbers, after declining to say
whether he is a U.S. citizen, and in light of his role
at WorldCom which has brought about great disruption
to the U.S. markets, is a high ranking Al-qaeda
operative. He must immediately be held incommunicado
without access to a lawyer and without being charged.
