Bush calls for no new nuclear countries
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush,
pointing to a black-market weapons network led
by the father of Pakistan's nuclear bomb, said
yesterday that no new countries should have the
ability to enrich or process nuclear material.
He argued that international efforts to combat
the spread of weapons of mass destruction have
been neither broad nor effective enough and
require tougher action from all nations.
"The greatest threat before humanity today is
the possibility of secret and sudden attack with
chemical or biological or radiological or nuclear
weapons," Bush said.
"We must confront the danger with open eyes
and unbending purpose," he said in a speech at the
National Defense University. "I've made clear to
all the policy of this nation: America will not per-
mit the terrorists and dangerous regimes to threat-
en us with the world's most dangerous weapons."
His call to prevent countries from acquiring the
equipment and technology to enrich uranium and
reprocess spent fuel for plutonium - even if the
stated intent is to build civilian power facilities -
was likely to anger Iran and North Korea and the
countries that have supplied them.
Bush for the first time publicly accused Pak-
istani scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan's network of
supplying to North Korea the centrifuge technolo-
gy that is needed to make highly enriched uranium
for nuclear weapons. The administration previous-
ly had said that it believed Khan's network was
supplying weapons technology to North Korea,
Libya and Iran but had not specified what.
The administration and North Korea are locked
in a dispute over whether the Koreans are trying
to develop nuclear weapons using highly enriched
North Korea has acknowledged building
nuclear weapons using plutonium but denies it is
trying to build a weapon with highly enriched
uranium - a key dispute as the two nations head
into talks later this month with four other coun-
tries, including China.
With the president still being criticized over
whether Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruc-
tion, he also used the speech to outline the role that
good U.S. intelligence has played in the ongoing
dismantlement of Khan's network, as well as
Libya's commitment last December to give up its
weapons of mass destruction programs.
He gave much of the credit for Pakistani Presi-
dent Pervez Musharraf's action against Khan to
the groundwork laid over several years by U.S.
Bush singled out the U.N.'s nuclear watchdog
organization, the International Atomic Energy
Agency, for criticism, calling for the creation of a
special committee to focus on safeguards and
verification and to ensure that nations comply
with international obligations.
'Me greatest threat before
humanity today is the
possibility of secret and
sudden attack with chemical
or biological or radiological
or nuclear weapons:'
- President Bush
He also complained that nations such as Iran;
which has been under investigation for prolifera-
tion, have been allowed to sit on the IAEA board
of governors. "Those actively breaking the rules.
should not be entrusted with enforcing the rules'
the president said.

During the meeting, students came up with
a list of housing goals and concerns to
address. The list included devising a housing
seal of approval that could be used to distin-

Students who were present at the meeting will

meeting as a representation of student's needs in

"My immediate goal is to bring our summarized
