Rather to interview prez on same terms as Saddam



Administration agrees "in principle" not to attack Iraq



http://www.jewishworldreview.com | U.S. President George Bush has agreed to be interviewed by CBS News reporter Dan Rather under the same terms Saddam Hussein granted to CBS.

White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said the White House will provide the tape, and the videographers, will screen the video when the interview is over and upload it to CBS within 24 hours.

Mr. Rather and his crew will be driven around Washington, D.C., in three different cars before being taken to the White House.

Mr. Fleischer said that Mr. Rather will also be able to interview the U.S. President once every 10-to-12 years.

Meanwhile, the Bush administration has agreed "in principle" not to attack Iraq.

After United Nations announced that Iraq has agreed "in principle" to destroy some illegal missiles, the White House announced that the United States agrees "in principle" not to attack Iraq.

"Here's the principle," said White House spokesman Ari Fleischer. "America doesn't fight with nations that pose no threat to it or its allies. So, if Iraq fully complies with all U.N. sanctions, we will not attack."

Mr. Fleischer said the Bush administration also agrees in principle to seek a multilateral solution to the Iraq crisis within the context of the United Nations.

"Again, here is the principle," he said. "The U.N. exists to make the world a safer place. So, if the U.N. opposes a tyrant with a proven history of slaughtering his own people and threatening his neighbors, then we support a multilateral approach together with the other member nations. That would make the world a safer place."
