Americans by a large margin support the use of force against Iraq in the conflict over weapons inspections and overwhelmingly dismiss the suggestion that President Clinton is preparing a move against Saddam Hussein to distract attention from his own problems, a nationwide Los Angeles Times Poll shows. While the poll indicates the Clinton administration can count on considerable public deference for whatever moves it takes against Iraq, it does contain one cautionary note.

The family of Los Angeles filmmaker Cyrus Kar said Saturday that State Department officials had told them he would be released within a few days after having been imprisoned in Iraq by the U.S. military since mid-May, when a common component for explosives was found in the cab in which he was riding. "I am so excited, I couldn't believe my ears," Los Feliz resident Parvin Modarress, Kar's aunt, said in an interview.

Cyrus Kar's family says he left his Los Feliz apartment for Iraq to make a documentary film about a Persian king who wrote the world's first charter of human rights. But now they fear he may never get home. On May 17, Kar was stopped at a Baghdad checkpoint in a taxi allegedly packed with a common component for improvised explosive devices, according to a Defense Department spokesman. Since then, he has been in U.S. military detention outside Baghdad.
