"It was the second foreign policy victory for Bush in a week, after last weekend's capture of Saddam. He said his action against the Iraqi leader, as well as U.S. efforts to rein in weapons pursuits by North Korea and Iran, ``have sent an unmistakable message to regimes that seek or possess weapons of mass destruction'' and played a role in Gadhafi's decision.
The president sought to nudge other regimes with both the threat of ``unwelcome consequences,'' if weapons pursuits are not abandoned, and the offer -- if they are -- of ``an open path to better relations with the United States and other free nations.''
``I hope that other leaders will find an example in Libya's announcement today,'' Bush said. ``When leaders make the wise and responsible choice ... they serve the interest of their own people and they add to the security of all nations.''
According to the liberal media, President Bush had nothing to do with it. [Please don't give him any credit. We're still trying to get over the Saddam story - seems to be their take]
I didn't realize Gore was involved in the high-level talks with the Libyans.
