U.Va. Talk Will Focus on 'Insider Threats' to American Security

March 31, 2011 — John Miller, deputy director of national intelligence in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, will give a public talk Sunday at 4 p.m. in the Dome Room of the University of Virginia's Rotunda.

Miller will discuss "'We Have Met the Enemy, and He Is Us': New Perspectives on Insider Threat." The talk is sponsored by the U.Va.-based Critical Incident Analysis Group.

Miller's talk will address 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 U.Va. associate professor of psychiatry and neurobehavioral sciences, served as that panel's chairman. The group's co-chair, Christopher Holstege, a U.Va. associate professor of emergency medicine, also served on the nine-member panel.

Miller's talk will also address other "insider threats" to American security, such as the Fort Hood, Texas shootings and WikiLeaks documents.

Before moving to government, Miller was an ABC News correspondent from 1995 to 2002. In May 1998, he interviewed Osama bin Laden at a secret mountain hideaway in Afghanistan – an interview in which bin Laden warned of dark days ahead for the United States.

The talk is free and open to the public, but seating is limited. For information, contact the Critical Incident Analysis Group office at 434-243-9458 or ciag@virginia.edu.
