BRUSSELS, Belgium -- The European Union's head office said Wednesday it would examine whether the 
Pentagon decision to shut Germany, France and other countries that opposed its war in Iraq out of 
bidding for reconstruction contracts violates World Trade Organization rules.

"We are asking the U.S. to provide us with information so we can see whether or not their 
commitments with regard to the WTO have been respected," said Arancha Gonzalez, trade spokeswoman 
at the European Commission.

She said the 26 contracts listed on the Pentagon website would be examined to see what they cover 
and whether national security exemptions would apply. NY Newsday
