Beyond Baghdad: Expanding Target List...Washington looks at overhauling the Islamic and Arab world (Roy Gutman and John Barry, Newsweek)
While still wrangling over how to overthrow Iraq’s Saddam Hussein, the Bush administration is already looking for other targets. President Bush has called for the ouster of Palestinian leader Yasir Arafat. Now some in the administration—and allies at D.C. think tanks—are eyeing Iran and even Saudi Arabia.
