Aibright: Iraq de meets objectives

Los Angeles 'Times
WASHINGTON - U.S. Secretary of
State Madeleine Albright said yesterday
that new clarifications show the U.N.
deal with Iraq meets all of Washington's
primary objectives, and she rejected
Republican criticism that the agreement
amounts to "appeasement."
The next step, Albright said, is to
attempt to enforce the pact as soon as
possible to find out if Iraqi President
Saddam Hussein will abide by his writ-
ten pledges, reached Sunday with U.N.
Secretary-General Kofi Annan.
Responding to U.S. demands for
more details of the deal, Annan said
yesterday that the existing U.N.
weapons team - and its tough chair
Richard Butler - will retain "opera-
tional control" of the inspection pro-
gram, despite a new layer of U.N.

not diminish the U.S. capacity to use
military force against Baghdad's sus-
pected chemical and biological
weapons programs.
"This leaves us with a policy that is.
quite frankly, not fully satisfactory to
anyone:' Albright conceded. "It is a
real-world policy, not a feel-good poli-
cy. But I'm convinced it is the best pol-
icy to protect our interests and those of
our friends and allies in the gulf. It
embodies both our desire for peace and
our determination to fight if necessary."
Albright's comments about the U.N.
clarifications came as Republicans on
Capitol Hill, led by Senate Majority
Leader Trent Lott of Mississippi,
attacked the agreement and Annan.

Lott said the United States should
reject the deal, though he stopped
short of calling for immediate mil i-
tary action.
"We cannot afford peace at any
price," Lott said in a speech to the
Senate. "It is always possible to get
a deal if you give enough away. The
secretary-general thinks he can trust
the man who has invaded his neigh-
bors, who has used chemical
weapons 10 times, and who has tried
to assassinate former President
George Bush.I... 1 cannot under-
stand why the Clinton administra-
tion would place trust in someone
devoted to building a human rela-
tionship with a mass murderer."

Asked at a Capitol Hill news confer-
ence about Lott's comments, Albright
said, "This is not a time to bash the
United Nations. This is a time to under-
stand that this agreement is a useful one
that needs to have some clarifications.
The proof of it is in the testing. In no way
has the United States given away any-
thing."
Lott objected that the agreement left
Annan in control of Iraq policy, saying,
"This accord sets up a new inspection
regime under the control of the secre-
tary-general. He appoints 'senior diplo-
mats' to the group. He names the head
of the group. The new group will have
its own rules - but we do not know
what they are because they have not
been developed."

Pentagon hit with
computer attacks
WASHINGTON - Over the past
two weeks, the Pentagon's unclassi-
fied computer networks were hit by
the "most organized and systemat-
ic" attack yet, apparently by hackers
bent on peering into personnel
records or payroll matters, the
Defense Department said yesterday.
No classified information appears
to have been tampered with, but the
matter remains "a very serious,
long-term problem," said Deputy
Defense Secretary John lamre.
"We have organized ourselves much
more aggressively and more closely
with the Justice Department to get our
hands around this," he added.
Hamre said he was constrained from
divulging too many details about the
attacks because the military was work-
ing with Justice in pursuing potential
criminal activity.
Harare told a group of defense
writers the onslaught should serve
as a "wake-up call" for the military

in particular and society overall,
arguing that neither the government
nor the private sector has done
enough to protect sensitive networks
from such attacks.
He described the intrusions as "fairly
heavy cyber attacks" over the past twig
weeks.
Court decision will
limit credit unions
WASHINGTON - Bankers won a
big Supreme Court victory yesterday
that will keep many Americans from
joining federally chartered credit
unions, a traditional source of low-co
loans.
Congress already is being asked to
reinstate the policy that has let credit
unions add millions of members.
The justices' 5-4 ruling threw out a
16-year-old government rule that
allowed company credit unions to accept
members from other companies. Federal
law does not allow credit unions to
expand their memberships that way, the
court said.

ARND THE NATION
Compromise offered on student loans
WASHINGTON -- A Clinton administration compromise offered yesterday
would reduce the interest rate on college student loans while assuring lenders a
greater return than promised under a 1993 law.
Vice President Al Gore and Education Secretary Richard Riley announced the
offer at a White House briefing. They released a Treasury Department report show
ing that unless changed, a plan due to take eflect in July would cause banks to qui
providing the federally guaranteed loans.
"We will ensure that more students can afford to go to college and that lenders
can afford to make the loans that will get them there, Gore said. Treasury said
lenders would lose money in the first two years under the proposal but would turn
a profit each year afterwards.
The government is expected to guarantee more than $24 billion worth of new loans
this year to more than 5.5 million borrowers.
The issue was politically delicate. The administration did not want to be seen as
caving to pressure from banks after backing a formula change in 1993 intended to
make college cheaper. Nor could it afford to anger students.
The interest rate on student loans now combines the rate on 91-day Treasury bill
with a fixed markup. That produces a current student loan rate of 7.8 percent dur-
ing a five-year period.

Assembly blocks
Kim appointment
SEOUL, South Korea The giddy
euphoria of Kim Dae-jung's inaugural
celebration faded within hours yesterday
into the sober reality of the political dif-
ficulties ahead for South Korea's new
president. All the parade's costumes and
floats had not been put away when the
majority party in the National Assembly
boycotted a vote on his choice for prime
minister.
In addition to being a rude rainstorm
on Kim's inaugural parade, yesterday's
action leaves unclear whether he will be
able to push through his promised eco-
nomic reforms to resuscitate the mori-
bund and corrupt economy, analysts and
observers said.
The stock market plunged 4.5 percent
and the Korean won fell further against
the U.S. dollar as the majority Grand
National Party boycotted yesterday's
assembly session that was scheduled to
ratify Kim's choice for prime minister.
The prime minister appoints the presi-
dent's cabinet so Kim is now without an
official body of government advisers.

Analysts immediately voiced concern
that this might be just the first sign of the
steadfast political opposition awaiting
Kim's every move.
Pres.-elect gives up
U.S. citizenship
MOSCOW - Valdas Adamkus, the
federal bureaucrat from Chicago who
was elected president of Lithuania, for-
mally gave up his U.S. citizenship yes-
terday, one day before he is to be swor4
into office.
Adamkus will take the oath of office
in Parliament today, then celebrate his
inauguration at a rally in central
Vilnius, Lithuania, and a Mass in the
capital city's landmark cathedral.
With his victory in January, the former
regional administrator of the
Environmental Protection Agency
became the first U.S. citizen to win elec-
tion as president of a former Soviet-bloj
nation, or for that matter, any nation i
Europe.
