[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] Exaggerated threat Evelyn Leopold’s report, "Britain and US lobby waverers on UN Iraq resolution" (25 October) indicates that the United States and United Kingdom are adding to the claims being made which exaggerate the nature of the threat posed by Saddam Hussein and distort his links with terrorism. The US media has widely expressed derision at some of the claims made by President George Bush and his cohorts. In the New York Times, William Safire says countries like Britain will be rewarded out of the Iraq "booty", while countries like France and Russia will be punished. The Prime Minister, Tony Blair, now seems completely out of touch with anything that could be described as an ethical foreign policy.
