    I accuse the media in the United States of treason.
    I have been analyzing terrorism for the U.S. government for 25 years. My 
    specialty is "threat analysis." This is a rather difficult field that 
    requires the imagination of Walt Disney, the patience of a kindergarten 
    teacher, the mind-set of a chess player, the resolve of a Boston Red Sox 
    fan, the mental acuity of a river boat gambler, and the forecasting ability 
    of a successful stock market analyst.
    While the media have, over the past several weeks, written extensively on 
    alleged intelligence "failures" surrounding the events of Sept. 11, I want 
    to address the media's common-sense "failures." As a terrorism analyst, I 
    am both appalled and confused by many of the post-9/11 articles published 
    at home and abroad, in newspapers, news magazines and academic journals, as 
    well as on the Internet.
