President Bush talks to reporters on Capitol Hill
yesterday following a closed-door meeting with
House Republicans on national security issues,
GOP panel
defies Bush
Armed Services Committee's
approval sets stage for
showdown on Senate floor
WASHINGTON (AP) - A rebellious Senate com-
mittee defied President Bush yesterday and approved
terror-detainee legislation he has vowed to block,
deepening Republican conflict over terrorism and
national security in the middle of election season.
Republican Sen. John Warner of Virginia, nor-
mally a Bush supporter, pushed the measure through
his Armed Services Committee by a 15-9 vote, with
Warner and three other GOP lawmakers joining
Democrats. The vote set the stage for a showdown
on the Senate floor as early as next week.
Earlier in the day, Bush had journeyed to the Cap-
itol to try nailing down support for his own version
of the legislation.
"I will resist any bill that does not enable this pro-
gram to go forward with legal clarity," Bush said at
the White House.
The president's measure would go further than
the Senate package in allowing classified evidence
to be withheld from defendants in terror trials, using
coerced testimony and protecting U.S. interrogators
against prosecution for using methods that violate
the Geneva Conventions.
The internal GOP struggle intensified along
other fronts, too, as Colin Powell, Bush's first sec-
retary of state, declared his opposition to the pres-
ident's plan.
"The world is beginning to doubt the moral basis
of our fight against terrorism," Powell, a retired
general who is also a former chairman of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff, wrote in a letter.
Powell said that Bush's bill, by redefining the kind
of treatment the Geneva Conventions allow, "would
add to those doubts. Furthermore, it would put our
own troops at risk."
Firing back, White House spokesman Tony Snow
said Powell was confused about the White House
plan. Later, Snow said he probably shouldn't have
used that word.

MONTREAL
Campus gunman blogged before attack
A 25-year-old man who mounted a deadly shooting rampage at a Montreal college
had posted pictures of himself on the Internet with a rifle and said he was feeling
"crazy" and "postal" and was drinking whiskey hours before the attack.
He also said on a blog that he liked to play a role-playing Internet game about the
Columbine High School shootings and wanted to die "in a hail of gunfire."
Those words proved prophetic, as the attacker - dressed in a black trench coat
like the Columbine shooters - died in a shootout with police after he killed an 18-
year-old woman and wounded 19 other people at Dawson College on Wednesday.
Four shooting victims remained in critical condition yesterday, including three in
extremely critical condition and one in a deep coma.
The gunman, who arrived at the downtown college armed with a rapid-fire rifle
and two other weapons, was identified as Kimveer Gill of Laval, near Montreal, said
Jayson Gauthier of Quebec provincial police. Gill suffered two gunshot wounds.
Gauthier said. Authorities believe police killed him but would not rule out the pos-
sibility that he turned a gun on himself, he said.
NASHVILLE, Tenn.
Convicted murder, loose for 30 years, caught
A convicted murderer who escaped from a Michigan psychiatric facility in 1976,
acquired a new identity, posed as a married man and then lived a law-abiding life in
Tennessee for 30 years was in jail yesterday after he was captured without incident.
Thomas Ball, 76, was arrested at his Nashville home Wednesday morning by
federal officers, Deputy U.S. Marshal Danny Shelton said.
Ball took on the name Thomas Fry and helped the woman he called his wife oper-
ate a storage business, Shelton said.
"Maybe he never thought the knock would come, but it did yesterday," Shelton
said yesterday.
MOSCOW
Russian reformist bank official assassinated
Andrei Kozlov, a top central banker crusading against money-laundering, had just
finished playing soccer with colleagues when two assailants pumped him full of
bullets.
Officials suspect the slaying was ordered by crooked financiers unhappy with
Kozlov's drive to clean up the system - underscoring how Vladimir Putin's Russia
remains a cauldron of murky business interests rife with gangland killings.
The assassins fled in the darkness, leaving their guns behind - the signature of
a contract killing. There were no surveillance cameras in the area, and no one could
describe the gunmen.
Kozlov, thebank's first deputy chairman, died in a hospital early yesterday without
regaining consciousness hours after he was shot late Wednesday, Moscow prosecu-
tor's office said. The banker's driver was also killed in the attack outside the Moscow
sports arena where Kozlov and other bank employees had played soccer.
BAGHDAD
Sectarian bloodshed up in parts of Baghdad
Sectarian killings have surged in parts of Baghdad not yet included in a secu-
rity offensive, the U.S. military said yesterday, while bombings and other insurgent
attacks killed four American soldiers and wounded 25 in the capital region.
Police reported finding 20 bodies dumped on streets, many of them victims of
reprisal killings in the escalating conflict between Shiite and Sunni Arabs. Six peo-
ple died when a car bomb exploded at a soccer field in Fallujah, raising the death
toll across Iraq to at least 28.
One of the few positive developments for the U.S.-led coalition and the national
unity government was the reported killing of a senior member of al-Qaida in Iraq
and the capture of another.
