Bush demsiido justice
for deaths of Americans
WASHINGTON The United States Wednesday demanded
that Iran bring the terrorists who killed two Americans and
tortured others aboard a hijacked Kuwaiti airliner "swiftly and
surely to justice."
Vice President George Bush, at Andrews Air Force Base to
meet the Air Force plane that brought home the bodies of the
two men, said in carefully-worded remarks clearly aimed at the
Iranian government: "Let us resolve that civilized nations can
and must resist terrorism and to demand that governments
have the decency to bring to justice terrorists, to bring them
swiftly and surely to justice."
The Reagan administration has strongly suggested that Iran
did not do all that it should have to end the six-day hijacking
drama at Tehran airport.
In London, Iran Wednesday defended its handling of the
hijacking at Tehran airport and said US. criticism of its role
could indicate American involvement in the attempted hijack
ing of an Iranian plane last weekend. Iranian Prime Minister
Mir-Hossein Moussavi rejected U.S. criticism that Iran had
delayed acting for too long and blamed US. policies for the
"It is the aggressive policies of the United States that caused
the death of the two Americans " the national news agency
IRNA quoted Moussavi as saying.
IRNA said Moussavi linked a failed attempt to hyack an
Iranian airliner last Saturday to the U.S. criticism of Iran.
Meanwhile, a senior Kuwaiti official said Wednesday that
Iran told Kuwait during the Tehran hyack drama that it held
out little hope of freeing the hostages by force.
Stamp rates to increase in 1985
WASHINGTON - The Postal Service said Wednesday rates
will rise Feb. 1 7, with the price of a first-class stamp going to 22
cents from 20 cents. Postal Service Chairman John McKean
said the increase was needed to offset rising costs. Costs
exceeded revenues by $453 million in fiscal 1934, he said, and
so far this year the service has lost $140 million. The rate
increase was recommended by the independent Postal Rate
Commission and accepted by the Postal Service board of gov
ernors in a closed meeting. It is the first increase since November
1981. The increase will raise revenues by $1.8 billion, a Postal
Service spokesman said.
Second-class rates will rise an average 14.2 percent, third
class regular bulk rates 13.8 percent and fourth-class parcel
post 11.4 percent.
Weinberger agrees to arms cut;
WASHINGTON Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger has
agreed to a cut of slightly less than $8 billion in military spend
ing in the 1986 financial year, administration officials said
Wednesday. Weinberger has been resisting cuts for the Pen
tagon but accepted a lower budget during a meeting with
President Reagan this afternoon.
The cuts were demanded by congressional leaders of Rea
gan's own Republican Party, who have said that deep cuts in
domestic programs ordered by Reagan to reduce soaring defic
its would not get through Congress unless defense spending
also was reduced.
Officials said Weinberger today strongly resisted projected
defense cuts of $20 billion in the 1987 financial year and $30
billion m the following year. These projected cuts were pro
posed by Reagan's budget director, David Stockman, to meet
goals for lowering future deficits through lower spending in
domestic and military programs. The officials said Weinberger
argued for reductions limited to between $6 billion and $8
billion in each of the 1987 and 1988 financial years.
