In the March/April 2006 issue of Skeptical Inquirer, Meinel documents how hoaxers stampeded the F.B.I. into diverting counterterroism funding into the cyberspace beat -- making 9/11 more likely. The letters to editor of the August issue promise controversy -- and what the F.B.I. had to say about this controversy before a joint House/Senate Intelligence Committee hearing.


Meinel's article on war in cyberspace in the Oct. 2001 Scientific American was reprinted in Best American Science Writing 2002.
