Rebuffing Israel on a key Mideast negotiating issue, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Wednesday that the Obama administration wants a complete halt in the growth of Jewish settlements in Palestinian territory, with no exceptions. President Obama "wants to see a stop to settlements -- not some settlements, not outposts, not natural-growth exceptions," Clinton said.

The gaffes keep piling up: the untimely comments stoking fears of swine flu, dismissals of Russia that seem straight out of the Cold War. But in defiance of the normal rules of American politics, Vice President Joe Biden appears to be solidifying his relationship with his boss and accumulating more assignments central to the administration's agenda. Having lined up support in the Senate to assure passage of the $787-billion economic stimulus plan, Biden was recently tapped by President Obama to play a bigger role in the healthcare debate that is now dominating the congressional agenda.

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert boasted Monday that he successfully pressured President Bush last week to reverse course on U.S. diplomacy over fighting in Gaza, in an episode that could sharpen tensions between the close allies at a sensitive moment. Speaking to an audience in Ashkelon, Israel, Olmert said he had called Bush last Thursday and convinced him that the United States should not vote for a pending U.N. Security Council resolution urging a cease-fire in the Gaza Strip.

Richard Boudreaux's article ("Nicaraguans Leaving in Droves as Economy Sinks," Part I, Nov. 20) unfortunately reflects the one-sided and biased reporting coming out of Nicaragua by the U.S. press. In describing in detail the exodus of Nicaraguans Boudreaux fails to point out that the cause of the admittedly sad state of the Nicaraguan economy is the Reagan Administration's almost 8-year war to destroy the economy and bring the Sandinista revolution to its knees! Even in the wake of Hurricane Joan, which killed 116 and left 300,000 homeless, the Administration cynically denied disaster relief to needy Nicaraguans and has refused to lift its economic embargo so that private relief agencies in the U.S. can attempt to fill the void.

Your article on the Panama Canal by Richard Boudreaux (Part I, Sept. 7) tends to convey the impression that transit operations have been adversely affected by the present political unrest in the Republic of Panama. Boudreaux was assured by the Panama Canal Commission Administrator D. P. McAuliffe that canal operations have remained normal throughout the past three months of political activity in Panama. During the month of July, the period referred to in this story, traffic moved through the canal in a safe and efficient manner with the time a ship spent in canal waters a remarkably low 17 hours.

Richard Boudreaux's "The Great Conciliator" (Jan. 6) is the most comprehensive and illustrative report yet on post-civil-war Nicaragua. Now, in the light of day, it is obvious that the election of Violeta Chamorro symbolized not only that "the Contras had won the political battle," as Boudreaux writes, but that they, indeed, won the political war . With this in mind, I cannot devote enough energies to wishing Dona Violeta and the people of...
