Byline: THE WASHINGTON TIMES

Sunday, Sept. 8

President Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair said there is sufficient evidence that Iraq's Saddam Hussein is working on nuclear weapons and called on other world leaders to support an effort to oust the Iraqi dictator. Mr. Bush said a report with satellite photos shows construction of several Iraqi sites tied to development of nuclear arms.

Extremist Muslim clerics will meet in London on September 11 to celebrate the anniversary of al Qaeda's attacks on the United States and announce the creation of an organization for Islamic militants. The Islamic Council of Britain will aim to implement Shariah (Islamic law) in Britain and will welcome al Qaeda sympathizers as members.

A coalition of anti-tax groups rallied in Ballston against a referendum that would raise the sales tax in Northern Virginia to fund transportation projects, saying the region is taxed enough. "The entire nation is watching you," said Grover Norquist, Americans for Tax Reform president.

The small number of companies using pop-up ads to win the business of Web surfers are finding that they are annoying potential customers as much as attracting them. Many major on-line companies, such as Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com, are cutting down on the use of pop-up ads and are even halting them altogether.

First the tears flowed, then the money. The television images on September 11 galvanized two-thirds of American households to do the one thing they could do - write a check. Within a month, $1 billion flowed into dozens of charities.

The FBI engaged last year in its most expansive suspect research ever, a massive manhunt involving law enforcement agencies across the globe united by the goal of exposing and neutralizing Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda terrorist network. Hundreds of arrests have been made, many during the U.S. military's action in Afghanistan.

Tuesday, Sept. 10

An extremist environmental group is taking credit for torching a Forest Service laboratory in August and is threatening more violence against the agency. The Earth Liberation Front caused $700,000 in damage and destroyed 70 years of research at the Irvine, Pa., facility.

American Muslims are struggling with their public image a year after 19 radical Islamists attacked the United States, killing more than 3,000 people. Many Christians and Jews, on the other hand, say the Muslim response to the Islamist attack on Americans was belated and half-hearted.

Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat condemned attacks against Israeli citizens but stopped short of demanding an end to violence, as some of his colleagues had urged. Israeli Environment Minister Tzachi Hanegbi termed Mr. Arafat's speech "empty words."

Wednesday, Sept. 11

Saudi Arabia accepts no responsibility for the September 11 attacks in the United States, Defense Minister Sultan bin Abdul Aziz said, even though 15 of the 19 attackers were Saudis. He insisted that blame must be borne by individuals and not the state for the "dramatic day" when "innocents were killed" by the suicide hijackers.

Nobody was ready for "healing" December 7, 1942, and "closure" was the last thing anybody wanted. The United States, on the first anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor - often the benchmark by which September 11 is judged - wanted blood and vengeance, without apology.

The Bush administration raised the national alert status for a terrorist attack to the highest level to date as the military, police and local governments increased security for the first anniversary of September 11.
