Bookmark and Share Report Misuse or Glitches


President George W. Bush has suggested that other nations--Iran, North Korea, Syria--follow the example of Libya, which increased its own security by ending links with terrorist groups and surrendering weapons of mass destruction and delivery systems.

The United States needs to correct this impression.
