The WSJ has a lengthy article by Judith Miller, a "former NYT journalist and a writer in Manhattan" about the "undeniable and unheralded non proliferation success of the Bush administration".http://www.boomantribune.com/story/2006/5/16/9177/37293

..........it is, unsurprisingly, an ode to the intelligence, diplomatic and military competence of Bush and Blair. It also reeks of casual name-dropping of the various players that she met:

INTELLIGENCE SUCCESS

How Gadhafi Lost His Groove
The complex surrender of Libya's WMD.

BY JUDITH MILLER
Tuesday, May 16, 2006 12:01 a.m. EDT

As the Bush administration struggles to stop Iran and North Korea from acquiring nuclear weapons, it might recall how Libya was persuaded to renounce terrorism and its own weapons of mass destruction programs, including a sophisticated nuclear program purchased almost entirely from the supplier network run by Abdul Qadeer Khan, the "father" of Pakistan's bomb.

When Libya dramatically declared on Dec. 19, 2003, that it was abandoning its rogue ways, President Bush and other senior officials praised Libya and Moammar al-Gadhafi, the surviving dean of Arab revolutionary leaders, as a model that other rogue states might follow. In fact, the still largely secret talks that helped prompt Libya's decision, and the joint American-British dismantlement of its weapons programs in the first four months of 2004, remain the administration's sole undeniable--if largely unheralded--intelligence and nonproliferation success. And a key figure in that effort, Stephen Kappes, is now slated to be the next deputy director of the demoralized Central Intelligence Agency. Text
