NATION/WORLD

Leaders believe Iraq bill will pass NEWS IN BRIEFq§Ie

i 1

WASHINGTON (AP) - Congres-
sional leaders said yesterday a resolu-
tion authorizing war against Iraq,
expected to pass with little dissent, will
strengthen the U.S. hand at the United
Nations and increase pressure on Sad-
dam Hussein to disarm.
President Bush, after a weekend in
Maine, returned to the White House
and prepared to address the nation
tonight from Cincinnati. He was

making the case against the Iraqi
president on the one-year anniver-
sary of the start of bombing in
Afghanistan.
Senate Majority Leader Tom
Daschle, who has counseled caution
in unilateral moves against Saddam,
said he will vote for the resolution but
only after trying to make it more to
his liking.
A leading moderate Democrat sug-

gested Bush was winning broad
Democratic support for reasons of
domestic politics as well as concerns
about Iraq's weapons of mass
destruction. Many Democrats
opposed similar legislation that
authorized the Persian Gulf War
waged by Bush's father in 1991, and
the party is still smarting from a per-
ception as anti-war.
"I think we need to work to improve
our image on that score by taking a
more aggressive posture with regard to
Iraq, empowering the president," Sen.
Evan Bayh (D-Ind.), a leader of the
centrist Democratic Leadership Coun-
cil, told "Fox News Yesterday."
Bush requested a strong resolution
that would have given him a virtual
free hand to deal with Iraq's chemical
and biological weapons arsenals and
its nuclear arms research program by
removing Saddam.
Last week, a bipartisan group of
lawmakers went to the White House
and endorsed a somewhat narrower
version. It would give Bush broad
authority to use force to enforce rele-
vant U.N. resolutions, with or with-
out the cooperation of the United
Nations.

"...some here at Harvard and some at universities
across the country have called for the University
to single out Israel among all nations as the lone
country where it is inappropriate for any part of
the university's endowment to be invested. -I hasten
to say the University has categorically rejected
this suggestion...
"We should always respect the academic freedom of
everyone to take any position. We should also
recall that academic freedom does not include
freedom from criticism. The only antidote to
dangerous ideas is strong alternatives vigorously
advocated...

Daschle suggested would be more
likely to win the approval he has
requested from the U.N. Security
Council if the case for moving against
Saddam were to rest on a congression-
al resolution.
"I think he will be," Daschle told
NBC's "Meet the Press." "At the end of
the day, I think the U.N. is going to be
with us."
A House vote is expected Wednes-
day or Thursday, according to Speaker
Dennis Hastert (R-Ill.). Daschle said
Senate passage should come by next
week. Congress is getting ready to
break for midterm elections.
Bush warned in his radio address
Saturday that "delay, indecision and
inaction ... could lead to massive and
sudden horror" for the United States.
Aides said yesterday his Cincinnati
speech will answer lingering questions
about why disarming Iraq is necessary,
even by force if required.
The speech is meant to deliver in
one cohesive 20-minute package
Bush's arguments for force as a last
resort, a senior Bush administration
official said. The official said Bush
probably will discuss his ideas for a
postwar, post-Saddam Iraq.
Frenc
ol tanker
explodes
SAN'A, Yemen (AP) - An
explosion and fire engulfed a
French oil tanker yesterday off the
coast of Yemen, and the tanker
owner said a small boat struck the
vessel in a "deliberate attack."
Yemeni officials, however, said
there was no indication the tanker
was attacked and that the fire was
caused by an oil leak. French officials
said it was still too early to say if the
explosion was an act of terrorism.
"We don't have enough elements
to allow us to formulate a ...
hypothesis which would point to a
terrorist attack," French Foreign
Ministry spokesman Francois
Rivasseau said last night in Paris.
France will quickly send investi-.
gators to Yemen, President Jacques
Chirac's office said after Chirac
spoke by phone with Yemeni Presi-
dent Ali Abdullah Saleh. Yemen's
prime minister, Abdul-Kader
Bajammal, formed a special com-
mittee to investigate.
Yemeni officials said a leak
caused the fire on the vessel, named
the Limburg, about three miles off
the port of Mina al-Dabah.

JERUSALEM
Skinnish leaves two-Palestinians dead
Two Palestinian men were shot dead yesterday in the northern West Bank, one
in a gunbattle with Israeli troops, the other allegedly shot by a Jewish settler in an
olive grove.
Palestinians accused Jewish settlers of killing Hani Yousef, 22, as he was har-
vesting olives near his village, Aqraba. Another Palestinian farmer was shot and
wounded by the settlers, who came from the nearby settlement of Itamar, accord-
ing to the Palestinian mayor, Ghaled Mayadme.
Israeli police spokesman Gil Kleiman said the farmer's death was being investigat-
ed, but no arrests had been made. The farmer had been shot in the back, he said.
In the Jenin Refugee Camp, also in the northern West Bank, Israeli troops killed
Samer Jalamneh, a 22-year-old member of the radical Islamic Jihad movement,
after he opened fire at them with an assault rifle, witnesses and the military said.
Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, speaking from the remnants of his Ramallah
compound, accused the Israeli army of covering up settlers' actions.
"The army is protecting their daily crimes against Palestinian residents in their
homes and against Palestinian farmers," Arafat said after a meeting with Jacob
Kellenberger, president of the International Committee of Red Cross, who is tour-
ing Israel and Palestinian areas this week.
ROCKVILLE, Md.
Shooting spree involved same sniper rifle
The bullet used to shoot a Virginia woman matches ammunition used to
kill at least four of six victims of a sniper spree in Washington, D.C., and
suburban Maryland, investigators said this weekend.
Tests conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms confirmed
that the same weapon was used in five of the random shootings over the past
three days in Montgomery County, Md., and Washington. Tests were still
under way to determine any links to two additional shootings in Maryland.
"The round that we collected there is in fact a match to the rounds that
were used here in Maryland and also in D.C.," said Maj. Howard Smith, of
the Spotsylvania County, Va., sheriff's office.
The 43-year-old Spotsylvania woman was shot in the back in a parking
lot at a craft store in Fredericksburg, Va., about 55 miles south of
Rockville, at about 2:30 p.m. Friday.
No arrests had been made in the scattered shootings that began Wednes-
day. Authorities were talking to one man late Saturday afternoon, but they
stressed that he was not a suspect and no weapons were found with him.

on all of us-"

WASHINGTON
U.S. could use past
battle tactics in Iraq
The Pentagon is studying lessons
learned from the war in Afghanistan
and revising military tactics for
what could be the next big battle:
removing Saddam Hussein from
power.
While Iraq lacks the large, well-
armed rebel force found in
Afghanistan, many of the weapons and
tactics tried in Afghanistan could apply
to a war in Iraq. A U.S.-led campaign
again could rely heavily on special
operations forces, which helped defeat
the Taliban and disrupt the al-Qaida
network.
One of the most important jobs
done by the elite commando units
was helping guide U.S. pilots - and
their bombs - to the proper targets.
These units could "paint" a target by
pointing a laser at it, which a bomb
could lock on to, or use high-tech
rangefinders to tell pilots a target's
precise coordinates to use with satel-
lite-guided bombs.
CHICAGO
Illinois to reconsider
death row sentences
When Gov. George Ryan declared a
moratorium on executions two years
ago, Jim Dudovick was certain that the
death sentence of the man who mur-
dered his daughter would still be car-
ried out.
But now, Dudovick and the relatives
of other murder victims find them-
selves fighting once again for a death
sentence for the killers.
Beginning next week, the Prisoner

Review Board will hold hearings for at
least 140 of the state's 160 death row
inmates, after which Ryan will decide if
he wants to commute their sentences to
life without parole.
The governor ordered the hearings
after a string of challenges to Illinois
death sentences.
Since the state resumed capital pun-
ishment in 1977, 13 death row inmates
have seen their sentences overturned,
including some found innocent; 12
inmates were executed during the
same period.
LOS ANGELES
Port closures will
hurt U.S. industries
A second week of a West Coast port
shutdown will cause a noticeable
increase in plant closings, job losses
and financial market turmoil, say ana-
lysts andbusiness leaders. ho 4arse
increasingly skeptical of a quick end to
the labor dispute.
Already, storage facilities at beef,
pork and poultry processing facilities
across the country are full, crammed
with produce that can't be exported.
With nowhere to move their product,
plant operators will begin shutting down
today and layoffs will follow, said Mary
Kay Thatcher, public policy director of
the American Farm Bureau Federation.
In less than two weeks, if the shut-
down continues, manufacturing plants
will be ;rinding to a halt all over the
country, farmers will be up in arms, and
Asian equity and currency markets
could face a full blown crisis, said
Steven Cohen, a University of Califor-
nia, Berkeley professor of regional
planning.
