x xhe Washington Post
WASHINGTON - Lawyers for
Aonica Lewinsky and independent
.bunsel Kenneth Starr appeared closer
j a cooperation agreement yesterday
under which Lewinsky would testify
bout whether she had a sexual rela-
onship with President Clinton and
wihether he urged her to deny it.
Starr's staff continued Monday night
3 review the verbal offer presented by
,ewinsky's lawyers. Starr's next step, if
prosecutors believe the information in
le offer conforms sufficiently to the
ersion of events originally alleged by
ewinsky in privately recorded conver-
ations with a friend, is to interview

Lewinsky in detail to resolve any incon-
sistencies. Her story would have to be
put on paper before any plea agreement
or immunity deal is reached.
Lewinsky's lawyer William Ginsburg
has been sparring with Starr's office for
more than a week regarding his insis-
tence that she be guaranteed total immu-
nity from prosecution before she would
put her offer in writing. Prosecutors have
been equally insistent on guarantees of
exactly what testimony she is prepared to
give before they offer immunity.
"We're still waiting" for Starr's
response to the verbal offer made
Monday, Ginsburg said late yesterday.
"We've heard nothing. We didn't realis-

tically expect to hear anything until
after the State of the Union" that
Clinton presented last night.
On the tape recordings, Lewinsky
reportedly told her one time confidant,
Linda Tripp, that Clinton and his close
friend Vernon Jordan, Jr. were urging
her to deny the sexual relationship she
said she had had with the president.
Former White House intern Lewinsky,
who'd been confiding in Tripp for
months, also urged Tripp to lie about
what she knew of the affair when she
was questioned under oath by attorneys
representing Paula Jones in her sexual
harassment case against Clinton.
Sources have said that Clinton testi-

fied in his Jan. 17 deposition in the Jones
case and said he did not have a sexual
relationship with Lewinsky. Ten days
earlier, in response to her own subpoena
in the Jones case, Lewinsky provided
Jones' lawyers a sworn affidavit denying
it as well. If she is now prepared to testi-
fy that she did have such a relationship,
she gives federal prosecutors an impor-
tant piece of evidence for building a per-
jury case against the president.
The Jones lawyers sought to inter-
view Lewinsky and Tripp - both for-
mer White House aides - to bolster the
sexual harassment claim by demon-
strating a pattern of extramarital sexual
behavior on Clinton's part.

Clinton orders Iraqi weapons strike
WASHINGTON - President Clinton has ordered preparations for a "devastat-
ing" strike on Iraq's suspected biological weapons sites to be launched next month
if a last-ditch diplomatic effort fails to persuade Saddam Hussein to open his door
to U.N. weapons inspectors, U.S. officials said yesterday.
For the first time since the 1991 Persian Gulf war, the Pentagon also refused to
rule out the possibility of using nuclear warheads to attack underground bun
where the Iraqi leader may have buried "Scud" rockets and stockpiles of chemica
and biological weapons.
"I don't think we've ruled anything in or out," said Pentagon spokesperson Ken
Bacon when asked about using a penetrating munition with a nuclear warhead on
the Iraqi bunkers. "We will respond decisively with devastating force."
Usually when asked about using nuclear weapons, the U.S. government rejects the
possibility. But yesterday other Pentagon officials said Bacon had deliberately left
open the possibility. U.S. officials emphasized that the showdown was triggered
months ago when Iraq defied U.N. inspectors. "This has nothing to do with Monica
Lewinsky," said a Pentagon official who spoke on condition that he not be identified.
Earlier in the day, Clinton talked with British Prime Minister Tony Blair, who h
dispatched an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf that could participate in attacksU
what U.S. military planners have identified as stockpiles of biological weapons.

Twenty indicted for
unmigration fraud
WASHINGTON -_. Federal authori-
ties yesterday announced the indictment
of 20 people accused of involvement in a
nationwide scheme to falsify the citizen-
ship test results of as many as 13,000
immigrants in 22 states.
Federal agents began rounding up the
alleged ring members in California and
three other states as the indictments were
unsealed by the U.S. Attorney's Office in
Sacramento.
It was not immediately known how
many of the 13,000 immigrants who
benefited from the testing fraud have
already received U.S. citizenship, offi-
cials said. The Immigration and
Naturalization Service, which participat-
ed in the investigation, said it would
review each case to determine whether it
should require a new test, revoke the
applicant's citizenship or prosecute the
person for immigration fraud.
Critics of the INS said the agency
has failed to take adequate measures
against citizenship testing fraud and

Finance minister
resigns after arrests
TOKYO - Japanese Finance
Minister Hiroshi Mitsuzuka resigned
yesterday, a day after prosecutors
swooped into the powerful ministry to
arrest two key officials for allegedly tak-
ing bribes from the banks they regulated.
Mitsuzuka quit under fierce pressure
from a suddenly united opposition,
which was poised to extract maximum
political mileage from the exposure of
corruption in the agency that is charged
with extricating Japan from its current
financial troubles.
Within hours, Mitsuzuka's own Liberal
Democratic Party realized that, political-
ly speaking, a human sacrifice would be
needed to quell the outrage before it
threatened financial stability and the
campaign for the upper-house parl iamen-
tary elections to be held in July.
By 6 p.m. last night, Mitsuzuka was
headed for Prime Minister Ryutaro
Hashimoto's residence to resign.
"Hashimoto has chopped off the
finance minister's head in order to save
his own," said Eiichiro Suganuma, an

persisted in using private entities
despite evidence that they could not be
properly monitored.
INS Commissioner Doris Meissner
said citizenship testing procedures would
be overhauled in the next several months.
California will not
prosecute Kaczynski
SACRAMENTO - The Sacramento
County prosecutor grudgingly con-
firmed yesterday that California will not
prosecute Theodore Kaczynski since he
has already confessed to being the
Unabomber in a federal court.
District Attorney Jan Scully said she
would have liked to pursue a de
penalty case against Kaczynski, but
was barred by law from prosecuting
him for a crime for which he has
already been convicted.
Kaczynski pleaded guilty Jan. 22"to
13 federal charges, admitting that he had
been responsible for all 16 of the
Unabomber attacks that killed three peo-
ple - two in the Sacramento area and
one in New Jersey -- and injured 29..

editor at the Asahi newspaper. "However,
his inner moat has been filled up with
dirt. Now he's defenseless."
Mitsuzuka, Japanese media reported,
will be replaced at least temporarily*

Russian soldier kills
7 on Pacific base
MOSCOW - A soldier high on ace-
tone fumes went on a rampage and kill
seven fellow servicepeople at a re
base on the Pacific island of Sakhalin,
military officials reported yesterday in
describing the latest of at least 10 multi-
ple slayings in the disintegrating army
over the past two years.
The carnage Monday night spottight-
ed the deepening crisis afflicting Russia's
armed forces, which are grossly uatler-
funded, poorly supervised and embit-
tered over their deployment to political
and ethnic conflicts such as the faia
war Cor control of Chechnya.
