[Earlier, President BUSH – says we will lead a coalition to disarm Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.] [MELHEM – talks about the elevated terror alert and reports that an attack may be linked to the hajj; says the terror alert was a major story in the Arab world.] [BORGER – comments on the impact the weekend’s meetings between U.N. weapons inspectors & Iraqi officials might have on the inspectors’ next report to the U.N. and whether the progress will be enough to avert a war.] [BOLOPION - talks about the likely reaction in France if the inspectors report that Iraq is still not cooperating; comments on Secretary of State Colin Powell’s presentation to the U.N. of evidence of Iraq’s deception.]
