With the man who will coordinate U.S. efforts to destabilize Iraq at her side, Secretary of State Madeleine Albright completed a three-nation tour of friendly Arab countries Thursday, appealing for at least tacit support in the campaign to bring down Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. By introducing Frank Ricciardone to the leaders of Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Egypt, Albright stripped away any vestige of diplomatic ambiguity from Washington's anti-Hussein program.

The senior envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan sought Friday to dispel suggestions that he had been sidelined during dramatic diplomacy in Afghanistan because of his stormy relationship with the Afghan president. Ambassador Richard C. Holbrooke acknowledged that he had been in Washington, rather than Kabul, last weekend as Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) and other senior U.S. officials pressured a reluctant Karzai to agree to a runoff election, which has been scheduled for Nov. 7. Holbrooke, in a State Department news conference, said he had remained in Washington to take part in deliberations on whether to overhaul the U.S. strategy and send thousands more troops to Afghanistan.

The assault came on a day when U.S. forces announced the capture near the city of Ramadi of former Baath Party leader Khamis Sirhan Mohammed.
