In the months and years leading up to the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, they marched together in the vanguard of those who advocated war. As lobbyists, public relations counselors and confidential advisors to senior federal officials, they warned against Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, praised exiled leader Ahmad Chalabi, and argued that toppling Saddam Hussein was a matter of national security and moral duty.

A number of top building industry executives have been playing musical chairs, the result of a recession that has damaged some companies, brought new investors with new ideas into others and put bankers in charge of more than a few. Gordon Tippell, chairman of British-owned Taylor Woodrow Group's home-building companies in California and Nevada, is the latest to move, handing over his day-to-day management roles in Newport Beach-based Taylor Woodrow California Ltd. and Taylor Woodrow Nevada Ltd.

Hewlett-Packard Co.'s effort to buy rival Compaq Computer Corp. will face a key test today as a foundation that controls more than 10% of HP's shares debates which way to vote those holdings. The David and Lucille Packard Foundation of Los Altos will hear from Booz Allen Hamilton, a consulting firm that the nonprofit group hired to advise it on the $21-billion merger. If the foundation's 12-member board decides to oppose the deal, analysts and shareholders said the plan probably will fall apart.

The beleaguered U.S. natural gas industry could benefit in the short term from the shock of soaring oil prices resulting from the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait, analysts say. Though depressed gas prices have responded little so far to the Middle East crisis, they could rise as winter nears, particularly if oil prices remain high as expected. But it is uncertain whether the current Middle East crisis will have any lasting effects on the natural gas industry.

After seven difficult years of development, McDonnell Douglas Corp. on Monday handed over the first C-17 cargo jet to the Air Force in an elaborate ceremony in Charleston, S.C. But even in its moment of glory, the aircraft remains dogged by criticism and doubts that it will perform as promised. The bulbous gray aircraft the Air Force accepted fell short of the plane the government originally ordered.

Students in the western Iranian city of Ahvaz in recent days launched an impromptu protest in a campus auditorium. In Kashan on Monday, a group took over the campus cafeteria, singing anti-government songs. A couple of weeks ago in Tehran, others cheered wildly as someone threw a shoe at President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's former culture minister. Then on Monday, students shouted down the ex-minister, Mohammad-Hossein Saffar-Harandi, once again. Largely absent from international media reports and discounted by Western policymakers more focused on Iran's nuclear program, the protest movement that erupted after Ahmadinejad's disputed June 12 reelection has continued to smolder, mostly on college campuses.
