Nyt: Bush Was Right!!

I would have posted this earlier, but I fainted:

“Over the past five years, by turning over two suspects for trial,

acknowledging its complicity in the Lockerbie bombing and paying

compensation to victims’ families, Libya finally managed to persuade

the United Nations Security Council to lift the international sanctions

that had shadowed its economy and its international reputation for more

than a decade. Those sanctions were lifted in September. This page

recommended lifting American sanctions as well, but President Bush left

them in place pending further steps, most notably Libya’s decision to

end its unconventional weapons programs. It is now clear that he was

right to do so. The added American pressure worked just as intended.”
