Qatari Opens Fire at
The Associated Press
DOHA, Qatar - A gunman opened
fire Wednesday on U.S. and Qatari sol
diers guarding an air base in this Persian
Gulf country. The soldiers shot and
killed the gunman, both countries said.
No other casualties were reported in
the late morning shooting.
The attacker’s motive was unknown.
UNC is currently exploring the pos
sibility of opening a branch of Kenan-
Flagler Business School in the country.
The violence at Al-Adid Air Base,
which is being used by U.S. military air
craft, came days before Qatar plays host
to global financial decision-makers at
key trade talks. U.S. Trade
Representative Robert Zoellick will
head the American delegation for the
discussions with 141 other nations.
Some members of the World Trade
Organization had been wary of coming
to the Gulf state because of heightened
tension in the region linked to U.S.
strikes on Afghanistan. Qatar supports
the U.S. war on terrorism, and
American troops involved in the cam
paign are in the country.
The gunman fired at a security posi
tion manned by two U.S. personnel and
a Qatari soldier, according to the U.S.

The official Qatar News Agency said
the gunman fired several times at the air
base and the guards shot back, killing him
instantly. It identified the gunman as
Abdullah Mubarak al-Hajiri, a Qatari.
The Hamad Medical Establishment, a
state body that supervises hospitals in
Qatar, said in a statement that al-Hajiri
had been diagnosed as suffering from
symptoms of disturbed personality and
unbalanced character. He was admitted to
a psychological clinic in 1990.
In Washington, Pentagon spokes
woman Victoria Clarke declined to
answer a question on how many U.S.
soldiers or planes might have been at
the base at the time.
The air base’s security was “never
compromised" during the shooting.
Central Command said.
Last month, a U.S. master sergeant
was killed in a forklift accident while
building an air strip in Qatar, becoming
the first U.S. casualty linked to the
strikes on Afghanistan.
The base is about 30 miles south of
the capital, Doha, where the WTO
meeting kicks off on Friday.
White House spokesman Ari
Fleischer said the shooting did not
immediately appear connected to the
WTO meeting. “That can change, of

threatened to force changes in both elec
tions. Emily Margolis, Board of Elections
chairwoman, said problems in one of the
three Student Central servers caused
errors for students logging on to vote
between 7 a.m. and noon in all races.
Kristal Evans, a sophomore from
Greenville, said she tried to vote three
times before getting into the system. She
also said the site was not open at 9 a.m.
when she tried to log on. “It was so irri
But while many voters were met with
error messages, some students were not
aware the elections were taking place or
decided not to vote. “I didn’t try to vote
today, but I’m not surprised there were
computer problems,” said Lee Bush, a
junior from Charlotte. “There is always
something wrong with Student Central.”
Margolis said she did not feel the
decision to postpone the District 17 race
would negatively affect voter turnout
because the candidates in that district,
freshmen Natalie Russell and Anthony
Stokes, have been very active. District
17 includes Craige and Ehringhaus res
idence halls and Odum Village.
But Stokes said that because all of his
campaign materials advertised Nov. 7 as
election day, many voters will not be
aware of the postponement. He also
said he was discouraged by voting prob
lems because he thinks students need to
see Congress as functioning effectively.

The man entered the bank through
the east entrance and handed a note
demanding money to the teller, reports
Chapel Hill police are not releasing
the contents of the note.
Police also are not ruling out the pos
sibility that the man was armed.
“There was mention of his having a
weapon,” Jarvies said.
But it could not be confirmed that a
weapon was present during the robbery,
“No weapon was seen,” he said.
As of Wednesday, officials said they
had no suspects.
“We have nothing of yet,” Jarvies

Shayla Higginbotham said she and
other candidates were not pressured
into making a decision about postpon
ing the election. “The board gave us
ample time to decide,” she said.
Margolis said Wednesday’s problems
resulted from an instrumental error and
not a human one. She said she is confi
dent the general elections in February
will not have similar complications.
Young said candidates agreed that
ending voting at the planned time was
fair. “This is Chapel Hill, not Florida,” he
said. “We want to have a good election.”

rorist attacks didn’t match its rhetoric.
Twomey said that although the Clinton
administration did react less aggressively
than the Bush administration is now, the
amount of action matched the severity of
the attacks. He also said the nation viewed
the fight against terrorism differendy. “We
sort of look at Clinton now as being vasdy
soft,” Twomey said. “However, before the
(Sept. 11 attacks) the dominant paradigm
of how we viewed terrorism was a law
enforcement strategy, not a military one.”
Bacevich also said there was little
change in America’s fight against ter
rorism when Bush took office. “The
Bush administration wasn’t waging a
war on terrorism before September 11,
much like Clinton,” he said.
Others say conservative ideology has
something to do with Bush’s stance.

The general audience response was
positive, despite a few antagonistic ques
tions after the speech.
Sean Michnowicz, a sophomore
peace, war, and defense major at UNC,
said he was impressed that Berger was
politically impartial during his speech.
“Despite ideological differences, he
backed the president,” Michnowicz
Linda Esner, a Chapel Hill resident
said Berger’s speech was illuminating.
“He took a tremendous subject and
made it understandable and uplifting.”

“Bush comes from a long tradition of
conservatives that feel there are inherent
ly evil people and, no matter how they
became that way, the solution is to hunt
them down and kill them or put them in
jail,” said Ivan Arreguin-Toft, a Harvard
University political science professor.
Bush also boasts strong public support.
According to recent Gallup Polls, the
approval ratings for Bush have been at or
above the 80 percent mark. “I’m not con
vinced that Bush would be willing to risk
substantial military casualties if he didn’t
have the public’s support,” Twomey said.
But he said the major shift in the think
ing didn’t come with the new adminis
tration - it came with the attacks on
America. “We can’t compare Bush after
September 11 to Clinton,” he said. “I
think much more changed on September
11 than changed on January 20.”
