U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld ges-
tures during a news conference yesterday in Tirana,
Albania. Rumsfeld's remarks came on the final day of
the annual Southeastern Defense Ministerial meeting.
Ru-msfeld: Intel
report on Iraq
misleading
Defense secretary calls idea
that the world might be safer if
the United States were not in
Iraq 'nonsensical'
(AP) - It is impossible to know with any pre-
cision whether the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan
have created more terrorists than they've killed,
U.S. Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said
yesterday.
In his first extensive remarks about a recent
U.S. intelligence report saying the threat of terror-
ism has risen, Rumsfeld told reporters at a NATO
meeting that, in general, the value of intelligence
reports can be uneven, and "sometimes it's just
flat wrong."
But he added that "the implication that if you
stop killing or capturing people who are trying to
kill you, then therefore the world would be a bet-
ter place, is obviously nonsensical."
His statements came a day after the White
House refused to release the rest of a secret intel-
ligence assessment that depicts a growing terror-
ist threat.
In the much-discussed National Intelligence
Estimate initially reported last weekend, the gov-
ernment's top analysts concluded that Iraq has
become a "cause celebre" for jihadists, who are
growing in number and geographic reach. If the
trend continues, they said, the risks to the U.S.
interests at home and abroad surely will grow.
Rumsfeld did not specifically criticize or
address the controversial intelligence report,
but instead commented more broadly about the
terrorist question that has gripped the political
world since the report was disclosed last week.
"Are more terrorists being created in the world?
We don't know. The world doesn't know," said
Rumsfeld, adding that there are no good ways to
measure "how many terrorists are being trained
at camps around the world."

NEWS IN BRIEF
BAILEY, Colo.
School attack included sexual assaults
The gunman who killed himself after fatally shooting one of six girls he held in a
high school classroom methodically selected his hostages and had sexually assaulted
some of them, the sheriff and a witness said yesterday.
"He did traumatize and assault our children," Park County Sheriff Fred Wegener
said. "I'll only say that it's sexual in nature"
Wegener identified the suspect as Duane R. Morrison,53, and said was he from the
Denver area but had been living in his car. He said investigators had not established
any previous connection between him and the hostages.
State records showed he was arrested in July in the west Denver suburb of Lake-
wood on a charge of obstructing police in another suburb. He was also arrested for
larceny and marijuana possession in 1973.
Reached at their home in Tulsa, Okla., Morrison's stepmother said she and her
husband, Bob Morrison, "have no record of him being, having any trouble before."
WASHINGTON
Republicans push detainee bill toward passage
Senate Republicans fought off opposition yesterday to President Bush's plan to
prosecute and interrogate terror suspects, pushing toward passage of a bill the GOP
hopes to use as a campaign spotlight for its tough stance against terrorists.
GOP leaders eased past attempts by Democrats and a lone Republican to change
the bill, all but ensuring final passage by day's end.
The House passed nearly identical legislation Wednesday and was expected to
endorse the Senate bill on Friday so it could be sent to the president to sign.
The bill would create military commissions to prosecute terrorism suspects. It also
describes - at times vaguely - ways that CIA interrogators cannot treat detainees,
in effect granting the president wide leeway to decide what is legally permissible.
BAGHDAD
Al-Qaida leader invites sciensists to join
Al-Qaida in Iraq's leader, in a chilling audiotape released yesterday, called
for nuclear scientists to join his group's holy war and urged insurgents to kidnap
Westerners so they could be traded for a blind Egyptian sheik who is serving a
life sentence in a U.S. prison.
The fugitive terror chief said experts in the fields of "chemistry, physics, elec-
tronics, media and all other sciences - especially nuclear scientists and explo-
sives experts" should join his group's jihad, or holy war, against the West.
LAKELAND, Fla.
Police in Florida search for cop killer
A man who had been pulled over for a traffic violation shot two sheriff's deputies
yesterday, killing one of them and prompting an intensive manhunt that forced a lock-
down at three schools, officials said.
The shooter was first approached during a traffic stop, but he fled into a wood-
ed area when the officer began asking him about his identity, Polk County Sheriff
Grady Judd said.
That officer and a deputy who arrived seconds later with a police dog chased him
into the woods. Shots were fired, and the two deputies and the dog were hit, Judd said.
CORRECTIONS - Compiledfrom Daily wire reports
A story on page 3B of yesterday's paper (Pixiesfill out Tate murder movie) mis-
identified Pixies lead guitarist Joey Santiago as playing drums.
H A story in Sept. 20's Statement (Impending crisis in the NIH) misidentified
Charles Burant, a professor of internal medicine, as an associate professor.
In the same story, the Journal of Clinical Investigation was misidentified as the
Journal of Clinical Investigators.
An article on page 9A of Tuesday's paper (Mayer revamped: New bluesy sound)
incorrectly listed the number of stars the new John Mayer album Continuum received.
The album received 3.5 stars.
