November 2002: John Holschen will be teaching a special seminar on Friday, Dec 13th. He will show excerpts from the Al Qaeda training video tapes and provide commentary and analysis, including information on how to counter those tactics. John's analysis of the tapes has been widely circulated by major news agencies and Internet websites.
