British Prime Minister Tony Blair reportedly will tell parliament today that the pullout of about 7000 British troops from Iraq will begin within weeks. Larry Miller has more from London.
Prime Minister Blair is expected to say Project Sinbad has been a success and that it's the time to start bringing the troops home. Project Sinbad is the name given to the transfer of British security operations to the Iraqi armed forces. Blair is also expected to announce that nearly half the British contingent could be brought home by the end of this year, with the rest out by the end of 2008. British commanders now believe the security situation in the south is reasonably calm and that their training of Iraq's armed forces and police will allow them to withdraw to barracks and be used only when there is a need for extra help. More than 130 British troops have been killed in Iraq and the war has been a cloud over the last years of Blair's premiership due to lack of public support. Blair wants to see the pullout begin before he leaves office by the end of the summer. For NPR News, I'm Larry Miller in London.
According to Danish media, Denmark is expected to announce today plans for withdrawing its troops from Iraq. The announcement is expected to coincide with the British announcement. Denmark has 460 troops in Iraq. They serve under British command in the southern Iraqi city of Basra.
Human rights groups are decrying a two-to-one decision by the federal appeals court in Washington that denies Guantanamo Bay detainees the right to file lawsuits in US courts. The ruling upholds a new law called the Military Commission's Act. NPR's Ari Shapiro reports.
Amnesty International called the ruling a shameful moment in U.S. jurisprudence. The Center for Constitutional Rights said it encourages a contempt for international human rights law. But supporters of the Bush administration took the opposite view. David Rivkin worked in the Justice Department under President Regan and the first President Bush. "But the notion that enemy combatants captured, you know, in a war are entitled to be, to judicial involvement in these types of decisions is not supported by case law in the United States, is not supported by international law, is not supported by constitution, and in fact is not supported by common sense." Many people believe the final verdict on this will come from the Supreme Court. Congress is also considering a bill that would give detainees court access. Ari Shapiro, NPR News, Washington.
President Bush visits a hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee today to push his new healthcare tax break. The President says his goal is to help uninsured Americans buy coverage and to end what he calls an unfair subsidy for company-paid insurance. Right now company-paid insurance is tax-free, but the same insurance bought out of the worker's own pocket has no tax benefit.
Oil prices fell for a third day today in Asian trading. US light crude for April delivery fell by 34 cents to $58.51 a barrel in electronic trading. This is NPR News.
The CEO of Phoenix based US Airways will spend a day in jail as result of a drunk driving arrest. Doug Parker was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence shortly after his bid to buy Delta Airlines failed. From member station KJZZ in Phoenix, Mark Moran reports.
A judge ordered Parker to spend 24 hours in jail, pay fines exceeding $1600 and to be screened by a doctor to see whether he's addicted to alcohol. Shortly after his arrest was announced, Parker made an emotional apology to employees of US Airways which had made an unsolicited offer of nearly $10 billion for Atlanta-based Delta Airlines. After the sentence was announced, US Airways apologized for Parker's actions again and said that he would adhere to all of the court-directed repercussions and restitutions that come about from this charge. Parker's blood-alcohol level was 0.096 which would not have been considered intoxicated in many states, but in Arizona the legal limit is 0.08. For NPR News, I'm Mark Moran in Phoenix.
The Foreign Ministers of India and Pakistan said today their countries would work together to fight terrorism. Their meeting came just days after a pair of bombs went off on a Pakistan-bound train, setting off a fire that killed 68 people. The two officials met in New Delhi for long scheduled peace talks and to witness the signing of an agreement to reduce the threat of accidentally setting off a nuclear war. They said their peace process would move forward. Meanwhile, authorities are searching for two men who were allowed to jump off the train shortly before it erupted into flames. Police released sketches of the two suspects yesterday.
