For all the marching and speeches about non—proliferation, the President seems to have hit at last on something that worked:The war on Iraq. Judith Miller has the beginning of a two part series on how the war induced Libya to fold on its nuclear program:
Col. Gadhafi's hip, 34—year—old son, Saif—al—Islam, told me in Vienna——where he earned an M.B.A. and lives when he's not carrying out tasks for his father, or studying for a doctorate in political philosophy at the London School of Economics——that his father changed course because he had to. "Overnight we found ourselves in a different world," said Saif, referring to the Sept. 11 attacks. "So Libya had to redesign its policies to cope with these new realities."
