CNN aired excerpts of an October interview with Osama bin Laden on Thursday in which he makes ambiguous statements about responsibility for the Sept. 11 terror attacks and dodges a question about whether he was behind anthrax-laced letters sent to U.S. targets. The cable network's use of the video prompted a rift between CNN and Al Jazeera, the pan-Arab satellite network with which CNN has had a video-sharing agreement.

The letters mark the opening of a high-stakes inquiry that could determine whether the intelligence community overlooked possible warning signs and missed opportunities to prevent the attacks.

His hair and beard shorn, a made-over John Philip Walker Lindh stood accused Thursday in the heavily fortified federal courthouse where lawyers will lay out conflicting versions of his story: Was he a traitor working with the Taliban or a brainwashed kid from Northern California?

When Dianne Feinstein's staff walked back into their third-floor suite Tuesday morning, it was as though time had stood still.
