TRACK: U-S AUTHORITIES RATCHETED UP SECURITY BOTH IN VIRGINIA AND ABROAD FEARING THE EXECUTION BY LETHAL INJECTION COULD TRIGGER RETALIATORY ATTACKS AGAINST AMERICANS. IN A RECENT INTERVIEW FROM HIS JAIL CELL, KASI SAYS THERE'S A GOOD CHANCE PAKISTANIS COULD STRIKE BACK. Kasi: To them, Im like, kind of a hero, so, if Im executed, naturally, there can be people who will try to harm Americans. Teri Okita/Reporting: On a winter morning in 1993, Kasi walked up this busy street in front of CIA headquarters and began shooting into cars with an AK-47 assault rifle. Two CIA employees were killed, and three other men were wounded.
ONE OF THOSE INJURED WAS NICHOLAS STAR SHOT IN THE ARM AS HE WAS WAITING FOR THE LIGHT TO CHANGE. Nicholas Star/Shooting Victim: The doctor who glued my arm back together has described it as, when he saw it at the hospital, as hanging on by a nerve. 38-YEAR-OLD KASI SAYS HE FEELS NO REMORSE FOR THE SHOOTINGS AND SEES STAR AND THE OTHER CIA EMPLOYEES AS SYMBOLS OF THE U-S GOVERNMENT WHICH HE BLAMES FOR STRIKES AGAINST MUSLIMS.
Kasi: If a government of any country, it has caused damage to Muslims in other parts of the world, then people of the Muslim community, they have the right to fight back. ONLY A STAY FROM THE U-S SUPREME COURT OR FROM THE VIRGINIA GOVERNOR CAN STOP KASIS NINE P-M EXECUTION, BUT A STAY IS HIGHLY UNLIKELY. TO, CBS NEWS, MCLEAN, VIRGINIA.))

Less than a week after the Foundation filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protection, the lawyers have agreed to try to settle the matter OUT of court. Though they were in Bankruptcy Court this afternoon, the attorneys asked the judge to give them until the end of the year to come up with their own solution. The Memorial remains millions of dollars in debt, but the Foundation intends to put World War Two veteran Melvin Profitt at the head of the list of creditors. He gave the Memorial one million dollars last year, with the understanding the Foundation pay him a 70-thousand dollar annuity for life.
