was in charge of the arrangements From Page 1 The south was relatively calm as up to 15 mDlion Shiite pilgrims marked alArbaeen one of the holiest days of their religious calendar in Karbala on Sunday with alSadr militiamen and other gunmen keeping security in the streets US commanders have said they would delay any action against alSadr until after the cere monies which ended Sunday But US officials for the first time suggested there were open to a nonmilitary solution to the confrontation US coalition spokesman Dan Senor would not comment on Iraqi talks with alSadrs fol lowers but added I would say that our goal is to minimize bloodshed and to head off any sort of conflict We dont see it as a necessary requirement that any military action has to occur in Najaf Brig Gen Mark Kimmitt told reporters US troops retook the city of Kut from al Sadr followers in the past three days in the first major foray in months by the American military into southern Iraq where US allies have secu rity duties But military action to retake the other cities could require fighting near some of Shiite Islam s holiest shrines raising the possibility of enflaming Shiite anger at the USled occuoa tion There are many ways for the town of Najaf to come back under legitimate control of the Iraqi government coalition provisions authority and that dont involve any fighting at all Kimmitt said USallied Iraqi leaders have increasingly expressed anger at the bloodshed in Iraq over the past week saying the military has used excessive force Over a third of the citys 200000 residents fled the city during the lull Marines said Fallujah hospitals alIssawi said the number of Iraqi dead in the city was likely higher than the 600 recorded at the hospital and four main clin ics in the city adviser Condoleezza Rice the officials said None of the information in the presidents briefing or the August reports involved the eventual Sept 11 plot But former Indiana Rep Timothy Roemer a Democratic member of the Sept 11 commis sion has said Something was going to happen very soon and be potentially catastrophic I dont understand given the big threat why the big national security principals officials dont get together The sources who read the presidential memo would speak only on condition of anonymity because the White House has yet to declassify the highly sen sitive document titled Bin Laden Determined to Strike Inside the United States White House officials said they expected to finish declassi fying and to release the docu ment late Saturday afternoon or Saturday evening It would be a historic disclosure of presi dential intelligence briefing materials The sources said the memo included a series of items that brought Bush through a history of mostly uncorroborated intel ligence that cited alQaidas interest in hijacking planes to win the release of Islamic extremists who had been arrested in 1998 and 1999 It also included the trips of suspected alQaida operatives including some US citizens in and out of the United States It suggested alQaida might have a support system in place on US soil the sources said The document also included Briefing From Page 1 FBI analytical judgments that some alQaida activities were consistent with preparation for airline hijackings or other types of attacks some members of the commission looking into the Sept 11 attacks said this week The secondtolast item told Bush there were numerous at least 70 terrorrelated investigations under way by the FBI in 2001 involving matters or people on US soil the sources said And the final notation they said was based on a May 2001 intelligence report indicating alQaida operatives were trying to get inside the United States from Canada to carry out an attack with explosives There were no specifics about the tim ing or target of the attack but the memo said the FBI and other agencies were investigat ing A joint congressional inquiry report into Sept 11 intelligence failures disclosed the May 2001 threat report last year but did not reveal it was included in Bushs briefing The congres sional inquiry described the intelligence this way In May 2001 the intelli gence community obtained information that supporters of Osama bin Laden were report edly planning to infiltrate the United States via Canada in order to carry out a terrorist operation using high explo sives In her testimony Thursday to the Sept 11 commission Rice described Bushs Aug 6 daily briefing vas including mostly historical information and said most threat information in the summer of 2001 involved overseas targets Rice also said she did not recall seeing any warnings before Sept 11 that a plane might be used a terrorist weapon though it was possible others in the White House did Current and former govern ment officials told the AP that in the same month Bush received his briefing US intel ligence received two uncorrobo rated reports among hun dreds suggesting terrorist might use planes but that nei ther reached the president or Rice The officials said one report in August 2001 said there was uncorroborated information that two bin Laden operatives had met in October 2000 to dis cuss a plot to attack the US Embassy in Nairobi with an air plane That report said the opera tive would either use the plane to bomb the embassy or crash into it according to information provided congressional investi gators and cited in their report released last year Separately the CIA asked the Federal Aviation Administration in August 2001 to advise commercial airlines that six Pakistanis in Latin America not connected to al Qaida were considering a hijacking bombing or sabotage of an airliner That warning did not have specifics on a time or location but said it could involve Britain Canada Mexico Malaysia or Cuba amoiig others according to information made public by the congressional inquiry ;
