Page 2A — Herald-Zeitung — Sunday, May 8, 2005Bush: U.S. had hand in European divisions
RIGA, Latvia (AP)—Second-guessing Franklin D. Roosevelt, President Bush said Saturday the United States played a role in Europe’s painful division after World War II — a decision that helped cause “one of the greatest wrongs of history’’ when the Soviet Union imposed its harsh rule across Central and Eastern Europe.
Bush said the lessons of the past will not be forgotten as the United States tries to spread freedom in the Middle East.
“We will not repeat the mistakes of other generations, appeasing or excusing tyranny, and sacrificing freedom in the vain pursuit of stability,’’ the president said. “We have learned our lesson; no one's liberty is expendable. In the long run, our security and true stability depend on the freedom of others.’’
Bush singled out the 1945Yalta agreement signed by Roosevelt in a speech opening a four-day trip focused on Monday’s celebration in Moscow of the 60th anniversary of Nazi Germany’s defeat.
In recent days Bush has urged Russia to own up to its wartime past. It appeared he decided to do the same, himself, to set an example for Vladimir Putin, the Russian president.

PLANT RECORDS TO BE RELEASED AFTER OSHA INVESTIGATION - Safety and health records from a refinery rocked by deadly explosion won t become public until federal regulators finish their investigation, a judge ruled.
District Judge Susan Criss said that she was concerned releasing the documents now could have “a chilling effect” on federal investigations into the March explosion at the BP refinery in Texas City. The blast killed 15 people and injured more than I OO others.
Criss ruled the records, requested by news organizations, would become public after completion of an investigation by the
Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Under federal rules, OSHA has sue months to finish its investigation.
The judge said she would later hold an evidentiary hearing to determine which documents can be released under state law.
T he Chemical Safety and I laz-ards Investigation Board also is investigating the explosion.
POLICE REOPEN CHILD KILLING CASE - A police chief has reopened an investigation into four of the child slayings that terrorized the Atlanta area more than two decades ago, saying he believes the man suspected in most of the killings is innocent.
Altogether, 29 people — all of
them black, most of them boys — were killed in the Atlanta area between 1979 and 1981.
Wayne Williams, 47, is serving a life sentence for the murders of two young men. After his conviction, authorities blamed him for 22 of the other slayings but never charged him.
Dekalb County Police Chief Louis Graham said he plans to take another look at the slayings of four boys between February and May 1981. Graham, who became chief last year, said he took an interest in revisiting the cases after looking through some old news clippings.
TWO SUICIDE CAR BOMBS KILL 22 — IWO suicide car bombs exploded in a central
Baghdad square Saturday, killing 22 people, including two American contract workers, as Iraqi political leaders agreed on ( candidates for the remaining five Cabinet vacancies and a deputy prime minister post.
The attacks were part of a surge in violence that has killed nearly 300 people — many of them Iraqi soldiers and police — since Prime Minister Ibrahim al-Jaa-fari’s new government was sworn in April 28.
At least 36 Iraqis and three Americans were wounded in the attack in Tahrir Square, where shops were damaged and sport utility vehicles were burned by the blasts, Iraqi and U.S. officials said. The remains of mutilated bodies were seen lying in the street as fire trucks fought the blaze, which sent a large plume of black smoke up into the sky.
Chief of U.N. oil-for-food probe urges Congress to drop subpoenas
UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The chief of the U.N. oil-for-food probe accused Congress of jeopardizing his work and asked a I louse committee to return secret documents, saying the lives of some witnesses could be at stake. But the Republican lawmaker who heads the committee promptly refused.
Former Federal Reserve chairman Paul Volcker is seeking to dampen controversy over recent claims by Robert Parton, a former FBI agent who quit the U.N. probe in protest. Parton says Volcker’s inquiry played down evidence that incriminated Secretary-General Kofi Annan.
At a news conference Friday, Volcker reiterated that there simply was never enough evidence to prove that Annan influenced the awarding of an oil-for-food contract to the Swiss company that employed his son, Kojo Annan. But he again insisted that his committee finding was not the exoneration that Kofi Annan claimed it was.
He also asked the House International Relations Committee to return secret documents Parton has given it, warning that witnesses could be threatened if anything leaks out.

let me just emphasize this — in some cases with lives,” Volcker said.
But Illinois Republican Henry I lyde, the chairman of the committee, rejected the request, saying in a statement late Friday that he appreciates
“the gravity of the concerns” hut his panel has “an obligation to continue its inquiry.” Three congressional committees are investigating alle-gations of kickbacks and bribes in the oil-for-food program.
