- Reporter's Notebook: CAFTA Vote in the House, More Politics than Economics
When they want something badly, Presidents usually invite members of Congress to the White House. Today, President Bush and Vice President Cheney headed for Capitol Hill to push for the Central American Free Trade Agreement, which would establish free trade with Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. Paul Blustein of the Washington Post says that although CAFTA's passed the Senate, success in the House is not guaranteed.
Four men were arrested today in Birmingham, England. One reportedly is Yasin Hassan Omar, the 24 year-old Somali shown on videotape after a bomb failed to go off last week at London's Warren Street Tube Station. Neil Connor, who reports for the Birmingham Post, updates today's raid, which many residents feared was the response to another suicide bomber.
