Stories for Thursday,
Dec. 19:

• Retired Marine Lt. Col. Bill Cowan
Tim Trevan, former adviser to the U.N. weapons inspection program

Shimon Peres, former Israeli prime minister

U.S. intelligence has reportedly learned that Saddam plans to revive his "scorched earth" strategy in case of an attack. In other words, the Iraqi military would destroy its own oil fields, power plants and food stocks... and then blame it on our military, just like he did during the Gulf War
• Retired Army Capt. David Christian

Three of nine men arrested in Pakistan on suspected ties to Al Qaeda are U.S. citizens. What happens to Americans caught plotting with the enemy?

• Dr. Yaakov Stern, professor of clinical neuropsychology at Columbia University's School of Physicians
