NPR's Ted Clark reports on President Clinton's speech today, which invoked the Marshall Plan of fifty years ago as a model of US involvement with Europe. He said the plan reinforced the peace and prosperity of Europe after World War II, in which so many American servicemen gave their lives. Clinton's memorial day speech was given on the eve of his departure for Europe, where he and NATO allies will sign a new agreement with Russian President Boris Yeltsin. Clinton says that the agreement will reinforce and expand the peace envisaged by the post-war Secretary of State for whom the Marshall Plan was named, George Marshall.
