Members of the pro-affirma-
tive action group By Any Means
Necessary also spoke at the forum.
On Tuesday, BAMN filed a lawsuit
with United States Supreme Court
to allow Michigan State, Wayne
State and the University of Michi-
gan to complete their admissions
cycle using affirmative action.
BAMN members said the Uni-
versity needs to concentrate on
combating the effects of Proposal
2 through the courts and suggested
substantial changes to the under-.
graduate admissions policy.
BAMN member Neil Lyons said
the University should stop consid-
ering ACT scores in admissions.
He said it has been proven to be a
racially biased test.
Veretta Nix, the human resourc-
es director of University Health
Services, said youth and peer-
mentoring programs, like those
launched in the School of Nursing,

didn't use affirmative action, it
wouldn't receive the federal funds
necessary for its administration.
Amid all the legal debate, Peter-
son said admissions officers want to
ensure that students aren't confused
about the admissions process.
"Students have a lot of ques-
tions," she said. "We don't want
them to be confused, so we've done
a lot of education and outreach so
they will be aware and informed."
Until yesterday, the University
had stopped admitting students for
about a week to determine is post-
Proposal 2 policy. In mid-Decem-
ber, a stay was granted to delay
Proposal 2 taking effect at the Uni-
versity of Michigan and two other
schools. The 6th Circuit Court of
Appeals reversed the stay late last
month. The University responded
by halting the admissions process.
Early yesterday morning Coleman
announced that regular admissions
would resume - simply without
considering race and gender.
Peterson said the University
was eager to resume the process
of reviewing applications because
it feared a delay in notifying high-
ly qualified applicants of their
acceptances might result in those
students choosing other selective
colleges. She said that because the
delay was just over a week long,
it didn't put the officers behind

Cisco sues Apple
over iPhone name
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Cisco
Systems sued Apple Inc. in federal
court yesterday, saying the com-
puter maker's new iPhone violates
The lawsuit, filed in San Fran-
cisco federal court, came just a day
after Apple Chief Executive Steve
Jobs unveiled the Apple iPhone in
dramatic fashion at a trade show in
But even while Jobs was trum-
peting the product during his key-
note address to Apple faithful, the
matter of the product's naming had
not been resolvedbehind the scenes
between two of the biggest names
in Silicon Valley.
San Jose-based Cisco, the world's
largest network-equipment maker,
has owned the trademark on the
name "iPhone" since 2000, when
it acquired InfoGear Technology
Corp., which originally registered
And inthe spring oflast year, Cis-
co's Linksys division put the trade-
mark to use and began shipping an
Internet phone called "iPhone" that
uses the increasingly popular Voice
over Internet Protocol, or VoIP. The
product was officially launched
three weeks ago.
Cisco said Apple had approached
the company anumber oftimes over
the past few years about a licensing
agreement to use the name, and
that the talks heated up in the past
However, Cisco said communica-
tion between the companies ceased
Monday, and even while Jobs was
holding court at the Macworld
Conference and Expo, Apple law-
yers had not signed and returned
the final contract.
It was at that conference that
Jobs introduced Apple's own
iPhone, a "game-changing" touch-
screen-controlled cell phone
device that plays music, surfs the
Web'and delivers voicemail and e-
mail. The product still needs FCC
Cisco filed the lawsuit Wednes-
day seeking injunctive relief to
prevent Apple from copying Cisco's
"We certainly expected that
since they had gone ahead and
announced a product without
receiving permission to use the
brand, that meant that the nego-
tiation was concluded," said Mark
Chandler, Cisco senior vice presi-
dent and general counsel.
Apple argues it's entitled to use
the name iPhone because the prod-
ucts are materially different.
Apple spokeswoman Natalie
Kerris called Cisco's lawsuit "silly"
and said there are already several
other companies using the name
iPhone for VoIP products.

sized their opposition to a buildup.
"This is the third time we are going
down this path. Two times this has
not worked," House Speaker Nancy
Pelosi, (D-Calif.) said after meet-
ing with the president. "Why are
they doing this now? That question
There was criticism from Repub-
licans, as well. "This is a danger- .
ously wrongheaded strategy that
will drive America deeper into an
unwinnable swamp at a great cost,"
said Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.) a
Vietnam veteran and potential GOP
After nearly four years of bloody
combat, the speech was perhaps
Bush's last credible chance to try to
present a winning strategy in Iraq
and persuade Americans to change
their minds about the unpopular
war, which has cost the lives of
more than 3,000 members of the
U.S. military as well as more than
Senate and House Democrats are
arrangingvotes urgingthe president
not to send more troops. While lack-
ing the force of law, the measures
would compel Republicans to go on
record as either bucking the presi-
dent or supporting an escalation.
Usually loath to admit error,
Bush said it also was a mistake to
have allowed American forces to be
restricted by the Iraqi government,
which tried to prevent U.S. military
operations against fighters con-
trolled by the radical Shiite cleric
Muqtada al-Sadr, a powerful politi-
cal ally of Prime Minister Nouri al-
Maliki. The president said al-Maliki
had assured him that from now on,
"political or sectarian interference
will not be tolerated."
As Bush spoke for 20 minutes
from the unusual setting of the
White House library, the sounds
of protesters amassed outside the
compound's gates occasionally fil-
Bush's approach amounts to a
huge gamble on al-Maliki's willing-
ness - and ability - to deliver on
promises he has consistently failed
to keep: to disband Shiite militias,
pursue national reconciliation
and make good on commitments
for Iraqi forces to handle security
operations in Baghdad.
"Our past efforts to secure Bagh-
dad failed for two principal reasons:
There were not enough Iraqi and
American troops to secure neigh-
borhoods that had been cleared
of terrorists and insurgents," the
president said. "And there were too
many restrictions on the troops we
He said American commanders
have reviewed the Iraqi plan "to
ensure that it addressed these mis-
With Americans overwhelm-
ingly unhappy with his Iraq strat-
egy, Bush said it was a legitimate
question to ask why this strategy to
secure Baghdad will succeed where
other operations failed. "This time
we will have the force levels we
need to hold the areas that have
been cleared," the president said.
While Bush put the onus on the
Iraqis to meet their responsibilities
and commit more troops, he did not
threaten specific consequences if
they do not. Iraq has missed previ-
ous self-imposed timetables for tak-
ing over security responsibilities.
Bush, however, cited the govern-
ment's latest optimistic estimate.
"To establish its authority, the Iraqi
government plans to take respon-
sibility for security in all of Iraq's
provinces by November," the presi-
Still, Bush said that "America's
commitment is not open-ended. If
the Iraqi government does not fol-
low through on its promises, it will
lose the support of the American
people and it will lose the support
of the Iraqi people. Now is the time
Resisting calls for troop reduc-
tions, Bush said that "failure in Iraq
would be a disaster for the United
States..... A democratic Iraq will
not be perfect. But it will be a coun-
try that fights terrorists instead of
But Bush warned that the strate-
gy would, in a short term he did not
define, bring more violence rather
"Even if our new strategy works
exactly as planned, deadly acts of
violence will continue, and we must
expect more Iraqi and American
casualties," he said. "The question
is whether our new strategy will
bring us closer to success. I believe
that it will."
Bush's warning was echoed by
Sen. John McCain, (R-Ariz.) a lead-
ing proponent of a troop increase.
"Is it going to be a strain on the
military? Absolutely. Casualties are
going to go up," the senator said.
Bush said he considered calls
from Democrats and some Republi-
cans to pull back American forces.
He concluded it would devastate
Iraq and "result in our troops being
forced to stay even longer."
Thursday, January 11, 2007 - 7A
But he offered a concession to
Congress - the establishment of
a bipartisan working group to for-
malize regular consultations on
Iraq. He said he was open to future
exchanges and better ideas.
Bush's strategy ignored key rec-
ommendations of the Iraq Study
Group, which in December called
for a new diplomatic offensive
and an outreach to Syria and Iran.
Instead, he accused both countries
of aiding terrorists and insurgents
in Iraq. "We will disrupt the attacks
on our forces," Bush said. "We will
interrupt the flow of support from
Iran and Syria."
The troop buildup comes two
months after elections that were
widely seen as a call for the with-
drawal of some or all U.S. forces
from'Iraq. Polling by AP-Ipsos last
month found that only 27 percent of
Americans approved of Bush's han-
dling of Iraq, his lowest rating yet.
The president's address is the
centerpiece nof an aggressive pub-
lic relations campaign that also
includes detailed briefings for law-
makers and a series of appearances
by Bush starting with a trip today to
Fort Benning, Ga. Secretary of State
Condoleezza Rice heads to the Mid-
east a day after appearing today
with Defense Secretary Robert
Gates at hearings on Iraq convened
by the Democrats.
Bush's blueprint would boost the
number of U.S. troops in Iraq- now
at 132,000 - to 153,500 at a cost of
$5.6 billion. The highest number
was 160,000 a year ago in a troop
buildup for Iraqi elections.
The latest increase calls for send-
ing 17,500 U.S. combat troops to
Baghdad. The first of five brigades
will arrive by next Monday. The
next would arrive by Feb. 15 and
the reminder would come in 30-day
Bush also committed 4,000 more
Marines to Anbar Province, a base
of the Sunni insurgency and foreign
Bush's plan mirrored earlier
moves attempting to give Iraqi forc-
es a bigger security role. The chief
difference appeared to be a recogni-
tion that the Iraqis need more time
to take on the full security burden.
Another difference involves dou-
bling the number of U.S. civilian
workers who help coordinate local
reconstruction projects. These State
vincial Reconstruction Teams - are
to focus on projects both inside and
outside the heavily guarded Green
Zone, and some will be merged into
