Buchanan voices
hope for Reform-




Republican presidential candidate Pat
Buchanan bolted the GOP yesterday to
mount a third-party campaign and "res-
cue God's country" from a cultural and
moral pit. "Only the Reform Party
offers the hope of a real debate and a
true choice, he said.
"Our vaunted two-party system is a
snare and a delusion, a fraud upon the
nation," said Buchanan, a thrice-failed
GOP candidate whose anti-abortion
conservatism and anti-trade populism
could siphon votes from the Republican
and Democratic nominees.
He first must win the Reform Party
nomination, no small task if billionaire
Donald Trump - who joined the
party's New York affiliate yesterday -
Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura or party
founder Ross Perot jump in the race.
Buchanan is a longshot for the presi-
dency: National polls suggest that no
more than one in 10 voters support him.
Starting down what he called "our
Patriot's Road," Buchanan had harsh
words for President Clinton, presiden-
tial front-runner George W Bush, the
Supreme Court, the Education
Department, leaders of both major par-
ties, United Nations Secretary-General
Kofi Annan and "the godless New
World Order."

"Let me say to the money boys and the
Beltway elites who think that, at long last,
they have pulled up their drawbridge and
locked us out forever: You don't know
this peasant army. We have not yet begun
to fight!" Buchanan said.
"Go Pat, go!" shouted more than 300
supporters from the ranks of the
Republican and Reform parties, gath-
ered at a suburban Washington hotel.
His sound system repeatedly failing
him, the former Nixon White House
aide joked, "Who put G. Gordon Liddy
in charge of the microphones?"
Buchanan is the sixth person to quit
the GOP nomination race, leaving Bush
and five others. A compacted primary
schedule and the Texas governor's
record-shattering fund-raising win-
nowed the field earlier than usual.
Buchanan criticized Bush's educa-
tion plans and delivered a veiled slap at
the GOP front-runner by saying both
parties "seek out the hollow men, the
malleable men" as candidates.
In a statement released by his cam-
paign, Bush said, "Pat Buchanan is
leaving the Republican Party because
Republicans rejected his views during
his three failed attempts to earn the
Republican Party's presidential nomi-
The remarks were more pointed than

UN asks Afghanistan to exile bin Laden
WASHINGTON -The Taliban militia showed what could be at least a flicker
of interest yesterday in expelling suspected terrorism kingpin Osama bin Laden in
order to head off UN. economic sanctions.
A Taliban representative brought "ideas" to the State Department, but U.S. offi-
cials made no assertion of progress toward a settlement, nor was a follow-up meet-
ing announced.
I can't say what the outcome will be," department spokesperson Jam*
Rubin said. "Ideas were discussed about how to resolve this issue," Rubin told
reporters after Taliban Rep. Abdul Hakeem Mujahid met with Assistant
Secretary of State Karl Inderfurth for a little more than an hour.
Refusing to characterize what Mujahid had proposed, Rubin said the simple U.S.
demand was that bin Laden be sent where he could face trial in the bombing last
year of two U.S. embassies.
"We don't think it's that complicated." Rubin said.
The militia that controls most of Afghanistan must exile bin Laden to stave off
a threatened freeze of assets and worldwide boycott of the country's airline, he said.
"There is not a lot that is new here other than the fact they are now discussing
some ideas with us obviously because there isn't much time left before the san
tions bite," the State Department spokesperson said.

usual from Bush. He had measured his
words in recent weeks as others
denounced Buchanan's views about
Nazi Germany.
Presidential rival John McCain of
Arizona, who had suggested that Bush
was appeasing Buchanan, issued a terse
statement yesterday "I do not mourn his
departure," he said.
Buchanan, whose insurgent cam-
paigns hobbled Republican front-runners
in 1992 and 1996, failed for eight months
to break out of second-tier status in the
Republican presidential field. Though
low in polls and money, Buchanan is con-
sidered a threat by Republicans. "There's
no place for conservatives to go other
than to Pat," said former White House
chief of staff John Sununu.
Most polls substantiate GOP fears,
although some surveys suggest that
Buchanan would attract as many
Democrats as Republicans.

marked for the Reform Party nominee.

An election to the Institute is admired
by many because of its rigorous nomina-

to one of many sections in the Institute
and, "It takes years to work your way on
to the final ballot,' Marietta said.
Each individual section ranks their can-
didates on the final ballot and the Institute
members vote to decide who is elected.
The election is annual and as Marietta
pointed out, "about the same number of
people are elected each year, that's why
it's such an honor that Michigan had four
elected this year."

Chafee dies of heart
failure at age 77
WASHINGTON - John Chafee
was mourned yesterday in his home
state of Rhode Island and in the
Senate where he had served for
nearly a quarter-century, recalled as
an unwavering voice for moderation
and environmental protection in a
Republican Party that moved ever
rightward during his career.
"He embodied the decent center
which has carried America from tri-
umph to triumph for over 200
years,' said President Clinton, who
added that Chafee "always put his
concern for the American people
above partisanship."
A descendant of one of the families
that helped settle Rhode Island, the 77-
year-old Chafee fought in two wars and
was a three-term governor before win-
ning his Senate seat in 1976.
He felt ill Sunday and was taken at
mid-afternoon to Bethesda Naval
Hospital in suburban Maryland. His
office said he died a few hours later

from heart failure, although public
announcement was withheld until yes-
terday morning.
In life, Chafee was a leader
among the Senate's dwindling band
of GOP moderates, seeking to
bridge the gaps between lawmakers
in both parties.
Second Shepard

Authorities will argue that Aaron
McKinney lured Shepard from a bar
and, along with an accomplice, robbg
and beat the 21-year-old student -
finally lashing him to a fence and leav-

McKinney is charged with murder,
aggravated robbery and kidnapping
with intent to inflict bodily injury. If
convicted, the 22-year-old high school
dropout and former roofer could face
the death penalty.

Isreali police detai
20 foreign Christians
JERUSALEM - Alarmed by the
possibility of violence by extreme
Christian groups in the countdown to the
year 2000, Israeli police yesterday
detained 20 foreign Christians, many of
them Americans, who had settled near
the Mount of Olives in recent years in
hopes of witnessing Christ's return.
A police spokesperson said those in
custody - members of at least two
loose-knit Christian groups - were sus-
pected of plotting to harm public safety
in Israel. They will be deported, probably
within the week, she said.
The early morning sweep through
apartments in the Jerusalem suburb
of Azariya marked the third time
since January that Israel had acted
against members of Christian
groups. Israeli officials are increas-
ingly concerned that the millennium,
which is expected to bring millions
of Christian pilgrims and other
tourists to the Holy Land, may also

induce a handful of people to use
violence to try to trigger the apoca-
lypse and hasten Christ's return.
Police spokesperson Linda
Menuhin said those arrested yester-
day, including 13 Americans, thr
Britons, three Jamaicans and W
Australian, were in Israel with
expired visas or without passports.
Swiss conservatives
dominate elections
PARIS - Switzerland's anti-
immigration, anti-European party
has scored dramatic electoral gai
that could block the country's pla
for European integration and upset
its delicate system of government-
The conservative Swiss People's
Party soared in Sunday's voting,
according to preliminary results,
from 14.9 percent of the vote in pre-
vious elections to at least 22 percent.
