Chemical Weapons

NPR's Michael Shuster talks to Linda about the critical US Senate debate today concerning approval of the treaty banning the use of chemical weapons. The treaty was negotiated by the two previous Republican administrations. President Clinton has strongly pushed for approval of the treaty, since a failure to pass the measure would place the US among the pariah nations in the world who are unwilling to renounce the manufacture and use of chemical weapons.
