    The vice presidential candidates' debate tonight between Republican Vice President Dick Cheney and Democrat Sen. John Edwards, touted by the mass media as a possible pivot point in the presidential election, is missing a vital component -- four other candidates for the same office. Because several candidates were excluded from the "official" debate, there will actually be two debates between vice presidential candidates tonight in Cleveland, Ohio. Libertarian Richard Campagna, Pat LaMarche of the Green Party, Ralph Nader's independent running mate Peter Camejo, and Chuck Baldwin of the Constitution Party all plan to take part in a debate for "third...

    US vs Pyongyang: Watch RumsfeldBy Phar Kim Beng HONG KONG - As talks finally get under way between the United States and North Korea, the latter, which has made obstinacy and diplomatic misbehavior an art form, would do well to keep in mind the growing influence and staying power in Washington of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. With the US victory in Iraq all but declared, barely a year after a previous triumph in Afghanistan, Rumsfeld's influence has increased by several notches. Together with other neo-conservatives who urged the Iraq war, "Rummy", as he is affectionately known in Washington, is...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Vice President Dick Cheney will defend the White House later on Thursday in a speech addressing the growing controversy over what President Bush knew about potential threats ahead of the Sept. 11 hijackings, Cheney's office said. Cheney spokeswoman Jennifer Millerwise said the vice president would address intelligence issues surrounding the hijackings when he speaks at 7:30 p.m. at a dinner of the New York State Conservative Party in New York. "He's going to be speaking to some of the egregious and irresponsible commentary he's heard today," Millerwise said. The White House said on Thursday Bush had been...

    The Trilateral Commission — long viewed by critics and conspiracy theorists as a secret world-government-in-waiting — will begin its annual meeting today in Washington to discuss the future of the world's three main industrialized continents post-September 11. Under the chairmanship of former House Speaker Thomas S. Foley, the conference will gather 250 political, business and academic leaders from Europe, North America and Japan, who will analyze the global response to the September 11 terrorist attacks, the United States' foreign policy and the situation in the Middle East. "The running line at this meeting is definitely going, 'What do we do...

    DEBKAfile ^ | 3/25/02
    As a “courtesy” to the US presidential ceasefire broker, Anthony Zinni, and subsequently, to vice president Richard Cheney, prime minister Ariel Sharon interrupted his large-scale military operation against the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades strongholds of Yasser Arafat’s Fatah. The IDF was not allowed to complete its well-conceived campaign, turning the codename of “Root Treatment” into a misnomer. For the avowed purpose of giving the Zinni mission a chance, Israel pulled its tanks and troops out of Palestinian-ruled areas the day he arrived, March 14. Since then, raging Palestinian terror has claimed 23 Israeli lives and injured 218. Most of...

    THE NEXT WORLD ORDER by NICHOLAS LEMANN The Bush Administration may have a brand-new doctrine of power. Issue of 2002-04-01Posted 2002-03-25 When there is a change of command -- and not just in government -- the new people often persuade themselves that the old people were much worse than anyone suspected. This feeling seems especially intense in the Bush Administration, perhaps because Bill Clinton has been bracketed by a father-son team. It's easy for people in the Administration to believe that, after an unfortunate eight-year interlude, the Bush family has resumed its governance -- and about time, too.The Bush...

    The vice president's Middle East expedition didn't help the war on terror. NOT SINCE Secretary of State Warren Christopher returned from Europe with egg on his face in May 1993 has a high-ranking American official had such a bad week abroad as Vice President Dick Cheney just spent in the Middle East. At least that's the way it looks from the outside. Christopher, you'll remember, was sent to Europe by President Clinton to seek allied support for an American plan to help Bosnian Muslims defend themselves against Serbian killers. Christopher failed to make a forceful case to the Europeans, who...

Cheney pondered a possible meeting with the Palestinian leader as both sides seemed to be inching toward a cease-fire. Those close to the process said Arafat was eager for a meeting, and that the decision was up to the Americans. Such a meeting could take...

    March 16 — Vice President Dick Cheney, in Saudi Arabia on perhaps the most diplomatically significant and challenging visit of his 11-nation Mideast tour, encountered new rebuffs Saturday from Saudi leaders — who have reservations about U.S. plans to move militarily against Iraq — even as he conveyed growing American interest in a Saudi-sponsored Middle East peace initiative. AT KING ABDUL Aziz International Airport, Cheney was met by Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah. The two stood at attention as a Saudi band that included bagpipes played the national anthems of both countries. Cheney then had an audience with King Fahd...

    Instability on Horizon as Arab Regimes Remain Indecisive 12 March 2002 Summary Driven by a burgeoning youth population, stagnant economies and the regionally unpopular U.S. war on terrorism, domestic challenges in many Arab states are nearing critical mass. Arab governments are moving to counter this trend and have taken a number of unusual or unprecedented steps in recent months. But the measures so far are half-hearted at best and will not resolve the underlying pressures nor halt a surge in popular unrest in the coming year.
