White House sees record red ink, blames economy
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Bush administration dramatically raised its budget deficit projections on Tuesday to $455 billion for this year and $475 billion for next, record levels fed by the limp economy, tax cuts and the battle against terrorism.
The totals would easily surpass the $290 billion shortfall of 1992 that has been the red ink high water mark until now. They also mark a deterioration by more than 50 percent since February.
The shortfalls would drop to $213 billion in 2007, before edging back up to $226 billion the following year — underscoring that major budget challenges will loom just as the huge baby boom generation begins to retire and relies ever more on federal benefits like Social Security.
Coalition departure said to be in the hands of Iraqis
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) — For the first time, the U.S. administrator linked the U.S. occupation in Iraq to the political process, saying Tuesday American forces would remain in the country until Iraqis agree on a new constitution and set up a democratic government.
I American soldiers grumbled when told they would have to stay longer in a country where U.S. forces say they are coming under an average of 12 attacks each day.
The new Governing Council, meanwhile, decided to set up special courts to try former members of Saddam Hussein’s regime who are accused of involvement in mass executions, torture and other human rights violations.
The New York-based Human Rights Watch challenged the council’s plan, saying justice would not be served if victims of Saddam’s regime judge their tormentors.
The U.S. administrator, L. Paul Bremer, said the process of rebuilding the Iraqi political system was already under way with the establishment of the 25-member council — the first national postwar Iraqi political body, largely hand-picked by him.
