John Miller, deputy director of national intelligence in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, talked to an audience of security and national intelligence officials in the Dome Room of the University of Virginia’s Rotunda on April 3.
Miller’s talk “‘We Have Met the Enemy, and He Is Us’: New Perspectives on Insider Threat,” was sponsored by School of Medicine’s Critical Incident Analysis Group.
Miller described his 1998 interview with Osama Bin Laden, when as an ABC news correspondent he was escorted to a location in Pakistan where there is no electricity or running water, to interview the Al-Qaida leader. During the interview Bin Laden warned of dark days ahead for the United States. Miller told the audience that on 9/11 Peter Jennings remembered Miller’s interview and wondered “on air” if the dark days Bin Laden warned of were now happening.
Miller’s addressed the Expert Behavioral Analysis Panel’s recent report on the mailed anthrax attacks that occurred in the wake of the 9/11 attacks in 2001. The Critical Incident Analysis Group’s executive director, Gregory Saathoff, a UVA associate professor of psychiatry and neurobehavioral sciences, served as that panel’s chairman. Christopher Holstege, UVA associate professor of emergency medicine, also served on the nine-member panel.
