between countries and cited French
disapproval of war as one example.
Gabrail, who has family in Baghdad,
said he doesn't have a single family
member who is against the war. "I
want people to realize that Iraqi peo-
ple's concerns are how to get rid of
Saddam," he said.
El-Jawahri said Iraqis are prepar-
ing for war. "A lot of my family
don't feel threatened - they have
seen a lot of war in the past 27 years
of Saddam," she said. She added that
her family members are trying to
stock up on food, gas and supplies
She said many Iraqi youth are being
deported to southern Iraq to fight

felt doctors' fatigue contributed to
risks in the healthcare industry.
"I know transplant surgeons work
incredibly long hours. If you're sleep-
deprived as a physician, you're more
likely to overlook things and make
mistakes," Winfield said.
Like any other profession, there is
a learning curve for medical stu-
dents, but healthcare providers said
they felt that did not contribute sub-
stantially to medical errors. Naseer
Ahmad, endocrinologist at Provi-
dence Hospital in Southfield, said he
felt that healthcare providers at the
lower level of the curve were more
careful and more worried about mak-
ing a mistake.
Ahmad said that poor handwriting is
often the cause for medication mis-
takes. With many medications holding
similar names, poor handwriting and
error on the part of the pharmacist
could have serious consequences.
against the United States. "There is a
lot of talk among youth that when they
see U.S. troops they will drop their
weapons," she said.
Gabrail said it is hard to tell what the
people of Iraq actually think because
of restrictions on speech in the regime.
He told the story of his father's med-
ical school professor in Iraq who spoke
out against Saddam Hussein and disap-
"If you try to say something in
Iraq, it's dealt with immediately,"
Ghalib said it is difficult for her
family to get information about life
in Iraq from relatives still living
there. "They're not really allowed to
speak about anything political. We
don't really know what's going on,"
Technology is being used to prevent
such errors. Ahmad said there are lap-
tops available on the floor where he
works so that doctors can just click on
a medication instead of having to write
out a prescription.
Many hospitals are also starting to
use electronic records so that medical
information is accessible faster. Tech-
nology is also available so that the
records come with prompts that will
bring certain aspects of the records to
the physician's attention. For example,
if a dosage of medication seems too
high, a prompt will come up on the
screen asking the healthcare provider
to check the prescription.
The University Medical Center
has already begun to use electronic
records and University Health Ser-
vices is looking to acquire the tech-
nology sometime in the next five
years, Winfield said.
"No profession is mistake-free, but
in medicine the risks are more costly,"
Ahmad said. "We are trying all the
time to minimize these risks."

and GPAs than 69 minorities rejected
during the same period.
CIR spokesman Curt Levey said
some exceptions exist in each
admitted class, but "on average
(admissions officers) subject whites
and Asians to a much more rigorous
He said while the Law School con-
siders many factors other than grades
and LSAT scores in its policy,
minorities would only be dispropor-
tionately admitted if on average they
performed better than whites across
other admissions factors.
"The huge discrepancies can only
be explained if minorities perform
much better than whites and Asian
on those other factors," Levey said.
"But I don't think the University is
claiming that blacks and Mexican-
Americans write much better
The University's brief also said
when administrators drafted the poli-
cy in 1991, they took precautions to
ensure the policy would not "author-
ize, require, or encourage admissions
officers to admit a predetermined
number of minority applicants."
As evidence that the Law School is
not employing a secret quota, the
brief cites statistics showing that
minority enrollment does not hold
steady, ranging from 13.5 to 20.1 per-
cent from 1993 to 2000.
Levey said that in the last four years
minority enrollment has fluctuated from
only 13.5 to 13.7 percent, but Krislov
said the composition of the applicant
pool cannot be expected to vary greatly
across a four year span.
Even if CIR successfully proves the
University is giving a significant plus
factor to blacks, Hispanics and Native
Americans, it still has to convince the
Minority enrollment Powell: 45 countrks
has fluctuated, ranging
from 13.5 to 20.1
percent from 1993 to supp0at U a ctio.s
court that race is receiving too much
weight. The University's brief says
the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals
ruled the Law School could not enroll
meaningful numbers of minorities by
placing less weight on race.
Race-blind admissions would pit
a handful of black applicants
against thousands of whites with
similar test scores and GPAs. In
2000, only 26 blacks in the entire
nation had a 3.5 GPA and 165
LSAT score, while 3,173 whites and
Asian Americans achieved similar
results, the brief said.
"If you don't consider race as one
factor among many, than because of
the pool size ... you would have a
devastating drop in the number of
minority students enrolled at the Uni-
versity," Krislov said.
Yet Levey said the University's
policies should be overturned because
they target enrolling a meaningful
number of minorities, which he said
contradicts then-Supreme Court Jus-
tice Louis Powell's ruling in Regents
of the University of California v.
Bakke. The 1978 ruling banned racial
quotas but permitted the use of race
as a factor in a narrowly tailored
"Powell did not say achieving
racial diversity was a compelling
state interest, he. said achieving
intellectual diversity was," Levey
said. "Achieving racial diversity for
the sake of racial diversity is uncon-

and chemical plants, and in ele-
ments of the nation's food supply
and distribution system. Ridge said
governors are being asked to deploy
National Guard troops or extra state
police to help.
At the State Department, Secretary
of State Colin Powell said 30 nations
had joined the administration's "coali-
tion of the willing," and that another 15
had quietly pledged support.
But at least two of the 30 nations,
Spain and the Netherlands, have
explicitly ruled out the use of troops to
invade Iraq. Another, Japan, was iden-
tified as only a post-conflict member
of the coalition.
State Department spokesman
Richard Boucher said some of the
countries "may put troops on the
ground" and others may take on roles
such as assisting in a defense against
the use of chemical and biological .
weapons. Intelligence reports indicate
that Saddam has given his field-level
commanders the power to use chemi-
cal weapons, without instruction from
the leadership, Pentagon officials said
With war looming in the Persian
Gulf, the diplomatic and political fall-
out circled the globe.
In London, the House of Com-
mons backed British Prime Minister
Tony Blair's strong endorsement of
Bush's policy, defeating an anti-war
resolution and then voting in favor
of using "all means necessary" to
disarm Saddam. Blair has suffered
in public opinion over his support
of Bush, a stance that led three min-
isters to resign from his government
this week in protest.
French President Jacques Chirac,
whose country led opposition to war
within the U.N. Security Council, said
Bush's action would undermine future
efforts at peaceful disarmament. "Iraq
does not represent today an immediate
threat that would justify an immediate
war," he said.
German Chancellor Gerhard
Schroeder concurred, and said U.N.
weapons inspectors should have more
time to try to disarm Iraq of weapons
of mass destruction.
Both European leaders were
sending their foreign ministers to a
Security Council meeting set for
today in New York.
But by Bush's word, laid down in a
stern speech Monday night, the time
for diplomacy - and weapons inspec-
tions - had clearly come and gone.
Arab League Secretary-General
Amr Moussa scrapped plans for a
last-minute peacemaking trip to
Iraq. And the U.N. peacekeepers
boarded a plane out of Iraq, their
mission at an end.
For his part, the Iraqi leader
appeared on television wearing a mili-
tary uniform for the first time since the
Persian Gulf War in 1991.
Iraq's al-Shabab television, owned
by one of Saddam's sons, said the deci-
sion to defy Bush's ultimatum was
made in a leadership meeting chaired
by the Iraqi leader.
