Stone bears names
of Pentagon victims

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - A five-sided granite
marker bearing the names of the 184 victims of the
Sept. 11 attack on the Pentagon will stand over a
shared grave at Arlington National Cemetery holding
remains that could not be identified.
For five of the dead it will be the only burial
because no remains were confirmed to be theirs.
They include a 60-year-old retired Army colonel and
a 3-year-old girl killed with her parents and sister
aboard hijacked American Airlines Flight 77.
Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld planned to
speak at a group funeral Thursday, before a caisson
carried a flag-draped casket, bearing the cremated
remains in a single urn, to the gravesite. Most of the
64 victims already interred at Arlington are nearby
under simple headstones, within sight of the repaired
"The service is for all 184 victims, with a special
emphasis on the five families who didn't receive
remains," said Jennifer Lafley, spokeswoman for the
Army Military District of Washington. The Army
oversees Arlington cemetery.
The 4-foot-5-inch-tall marker, with names of the
dead inscribed on aluminum plaques, will be placed
over the grave later, she said.
In some cases, as recovery efforts continued,
additional remains were identified after a person
was buried. Some of their families chose to have
those fragments held for the common burial site,
Many of the dead, including some who were work-
ing inside the Pentagon on Sept. 11, did not qualify
for burial at the nation's most famous cemetery.
Arlington is generally reserved for active duty
personnel, military retirees, retired reservists who
reach age 60, winners of the military's highest dec-
orations, and former prisoners of war. Their spouses
Among the 275,000 people buried there are presi-
dents John F. Kennedy and William Howard Taft, the
crew of the Space Shuttle Challenger, and veterans of
every war the United States has fought.
UNITED NATIONS a r
Bush calls for destruction of weapons
President Bush demanded yesterday that world leaders force Saddam Hussein
to destroy his weapons of mass destruction, saying the lives of millions of people
will be at risk and the United Nations "will be irrelevant" unless it confronts Iraq.
"The just demands of peace and security will be met - or action will be
unavoidable," Bush warned. "And a regime that has lost'its legitimacy will also
lose its power."
"We cannot stand by and do nothing while dangers gather," Bush told the U.N.
General Assembly. "We must stand up for our security and for the permanent
rights and hopes of mankind."
Bush made his case against the backdrop of widespread hesitation among U.S.
allies - and American lawmakers - to use force against Baghdad. U.N. Secre-
tary General Kofi Annan cautioned the United States against taking action on its
own without Security Council ba'cking.
Annan said efforts to persuade Iraq to comply with resolutions calling for
weapons inspections and disarmament must continue, But if Iraq is defiant the Secu-
rity Council "must face its responsibilities," he said. Speaking before Bush, Brazil's
foreign minister, Celso Lafer, reflected the concerns of most nations, saying "force
AP PHOTO can be used only through the Security Council and if other means are exhausted."
A casket, containing remains from the Pentagon
unidentifiable rubble, is carried at Arlington National
Cemetery in Arlington, Va. yesterday.

Afghan aid approved through foreign aid bill
Afghanistan would get more money to rebuild under a foreign aid bill
approved by a House panel yesterday.
The $16.55 billion foreign operations bill approved by the House Appropria-
tions Committee represented a slight increase over the $16.47 billion requested
by President Bush and the $16.32 billion approved last year.
The increase is largely due to more spending for the Agency for International
Development, mostly for AIDS programs. The agency would receive $4.1 billion,
$345 million more than Bush requested, and $500 million more than last year.
Afghanistan would receive $295 million for rebuilding, largely in refugee
assistance and disaster aid. Committee members criticized the Bush administra-
tion for not offering a comprehensive aid package for Afghanistan and for strip-
ping $134 million for Afghanistan that had been included in an anti-terror bill
"There is no question that the reconstruction of Afghanistan must be a top pri-
ority," said Rep. Nita Lowey of New York, the top Democrat on the committee's

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Inter-
nal Revenue Service plans to focus
more attention on high-income indi-
viduals and those involved in tax
avoidance schemes such as credit cards
issued by offshore banks.
The intent of the new audit strategy
announced yesterday is to uncover
methods taxpayers use to avoid taxes
and hide income from the IRS, rather
than simply checking returns that are

filed for mistakes or relatively simple
omissions. IRS Commissioner Charles
Rossotti, while insisting the agency is
"not giving anybody a free ride," said
the aim is to free up auditors to focus
on such things as tax shelters, offshore
credit cards used to hide income,
wealthy people who fail to file returns
and other major problems.
"The real world is such that we have
limited resources," Rossotti said.
JERUSALEM (AP) - Palestini-
ans cheered their parliament yester-
day for forcing the resignation of
Yasser Arafat's Cabinet, widely
considered corrupt and inefficient,
but many stopped short of criticiz-
ing the Palestinian leader himself.
The toppling of the Cabinet was a
major blow to Arafat's prestige. The
Palestinian leader has been weak-
ened in recent months by diminish-
ing international support, Israeli
blockades and widespread dissatis-
faction at home with his rule.
The showdown with parliament
did not directly endanger Arafat's
political survival, and he appears
poised for re-election in January.
As part of his wrangling with legis-
lators Wednesday, Arafat set Jan. 20 as
the day for presidential and parliamen-
However, there were uncertainties
yesterday about whether the vote
would take place.

issue is not a new one.
"They were in the process of mak-

before the events of Sept. 11,"
Kosteva said. "This is not a new

you are going to have safety issues."

Federal Reserve Chairman Alan
Greenspan told Congress yesterday that
a year after the terrorist attacks, the
U.S. economy appears to have done a
good job of withstanding a series of
severe blows, "although the depressing
effects still linger."
Greenspan cautioned that such prob-
lems as the terrorist attacks and the
huge drop in stock prices were still hav-
ing a lingering impact on growth as the
country tries to mount a sustained
recovery from last year's recession.
"The U.S. economy has confronted
very significant challenges over the
past year - major declines in equity
markets, a sharp retrenchment in invest-
ment spending and the tragic terrorist
attacks of last September," Greenspan
told the House Budget Committee.
"To date, the economy appears to
have withstood this set of blows well,
although the depressing effects still
linger," Greenspan said.
Former priest admits

A former Roman Catholic priest
pleaded guilty yesterday to possession of
three computer discs and hundreds of
pages of images showing naked boys

Vincent McCaffrey, 50, resigned from
the priesthood in 1992. He later worked
at a home furnishings store, managed a
service station and sold insurance.
Authorities said some of the pornog-
raphy, which included images of boys as
young as 6 beaten, bound and gagged,
and locked in cages, were found hidden
.under McCaffrey's mattress.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Markus T.
Funk told U.S. District Judge John Dar-
rah that McCaffrey had "molested"
someone while he was a priest. But Dar-
rah cut him off and kept the hearing
focused on the child pornography
charges. Information concerning
McCaffrey when he was a priest is under
court seal. But much of it could come
out during the sentencing hearing sched-
uled to begin Dec. 9.
