– Al-Qaida is using its growing strength in Pakistan and Iraq to plot attacks on U.S. soil, heightening the terror threat facing the United States over the next few years, intelligence agencies concluded in a report unveiled yesterday. "The troublesome part is that al-Qaida has reconstituted itself in a haven along the Afghan-Pakistani border, which is a very hard area to get at both for geological reasons it’s very mountainous and for political reasons because it’s an area that’s really out of the control of the Pakistani government," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security.

– In a series of hearings last week on Capitol Hill, members of Congress shed light on the most significant source of volatile energy prices excessive speculation and manipulation on the unregulated energy commodity futures markets. As Michael Greenberger, JD, former director for trading and markets for the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and who is now professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, said in testimony this month, "failure to regulate these markets properly has distorted and sabotaged free market principles [and] cut those markets off from the moorings of economic fundamentals."

- A White House spokesman said there is "no credible intelligence" of a specific terrorist attack in the U.S. in the near future, despite Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff’s comment that he has a "gut feeling" the nation faces an increased terrorist danger this summer. "The American people are well aware there is a threat, and I don’t see this casual comment advancing the ball very much," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security. "And I find it troubling in terms of the overt lack of preparedness on the part of the administration," Greenberger said.

– A murder trial in Baltimore has been postponed until September, as police investigate a possible link between that case and the shooting death of its main witness last week. Jerome Deise, JD, professor at the School of Law, discussed why prosecutors might still be able to use the recent victim’s sworn recorded testimony under a law passed in 2005 if witness intimidation is proved to be a motive for the killing.
