AEI IN AN INSTANT for Friday, January 11, 2002
Information on current and upcoming events, publications, and other activities of the American Enterprise Institute


On January 10, the U.S. began transferring Al Qaeda prisoners from Afghanistan to a U.S. base in Cuba. Soon officials must decide how to try detainees who are suspected terrorists. A presidential order signed November 13 allows for the use of military tribunals, and a number of AEI scholars have argued in favor of the decision:

Think Tank, AEI scholar Ben J. Wattenberg's television series, will ask whether Iraq should be the next front of the war on terrorism: Is Iraq worth the political risk? Would a military operation in Iraq be like the one in Afghanistan, or much tougher? Are there other options?

Featuring Col. Ken Allard, Ivo Daalder, and W. Scott Ritter
Think Tank air times: Baltimore - WMPT, Saturdays at 10:00 a.m.; Chicago - WYCC, Thursdays at 10:30 p.m.; Los Angeles - KCET, Saturdays at 2:00 p.m.; New York - WNET, Saturdays at 9:00 a.m.; Washington - WETA, Saturdays at 1:30 p.m. and Tuesdays at 2:00 a.m., and WHUT, Sundays at 11:00 a.m. and Tuesdays at 9:00 a.m.
