    American citizen creates independent Kosovo news outlet
    An American citizen wrote PDForum about Internet news magazine Kosovo News.
    "Like most of the world, you've reported on the government repression of independent news organs in Yugoslavia. My company is making two small related services available in the Balkan trauma. We've created a free, write your own article news magazine called Kosovo News . Readers on the scene in Kosovo, Macedonia, Albania, etc., can write their own articles for immediate, uncensored publication. There's also a classified ad service with a missing persons section."

    "Patterns of Global Terrorism"
    The Department of State has released a report stating that the "United States is engaged in a long-term effort against international terrorism to protect lives and hold terrorists accountable. We will use the full range of tools at our disposal, including diplomacy backed by the use of force when necessary, as well as law enforcement and economic measures."

    USIA-Chaired Interagency Working Group Earns Vice President Gore's Hammer Award A working group of twenty-eight federal agencies chaired by the United States Information Agency won a Hammer Award for reinventing the way federal agencies communicate, cooperate, and coordinate U.S. government-sponsored international people-to-people exchanges and training activities.
