– U.S. intelligence analysts have concluded that al-Qaida has rebuilt its operating capability to a level not seen since just before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. "The war in Iraq has aided al-Qaida in restaffing itself and building itself up and has encouraged terrorists to associate with al-Qaida," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security. "The recent events in London tell us that western countries are in danger."

– The U.S. Supreme Court will hear appeals by Guantanamo Bay inmates, held without trial for more than five years, who say the Bush administration and Congress have deprived them of a constitutional right to go to federal court. "The ruling signals that Justice Anthony Kennedy, the internationalist on the court, is unhappy about the Guantanamo situation and how it has tarnished the U.S. image abroad," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security.

– The New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) the world’s main regulated energy-trading market seized on a Senate investigation this week to warn of the dangers of rival electronic markets that are largely unregulated. However, the Senate’s hearings and exhibits also suggest that NYMEX arguably failed to address warning signs involving Amaranth Advisors, LLC, the collapsed hedge fund that the Senate contends distorted natural-gas prices last year. 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 NYMEX should have done more to rein in Amaranth. He added that NYMEX is "making a lot of money off these trades, and they’re very conflicted about what to do."

– 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.

– Energy commodity trading and speculation has caught the attention of subcommittees in the House and Senate. During one hearing, a lawmaker said that ill-informed legislation on the matter could lead energy traders to even more unregulated markets and other forms of exchanges such as bilateral trading. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law, director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, and a former director for trading and markets for the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, testified that bilateral trading, in the form of trading through phone calls, was too tedious to become a viable alternate form of unregulated trading.
