Iran admits military industries produced nuclear centrifuges TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran said Wednesday it would resume uranium enrichment and warned it may quit cooperating with the International Atomic Energy Agency, which it accused of kowtowing to Washington at a crucial meeting in Vienna. Separately, Defense Minister Ali Shamkhani told reporters the Iranian military had built nuclear centrifuges for civilian use — the first time Iran has acknowledged its military was involved in the country's nuclear program. IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei warned that Iran risked undermining its efforts to convince the world its nuclear intentions are peaceful. "I think suspension is ... a good confidence-building measure, and Iran needs to do everything possible right now to create the confidence required," ElBaradei said Wednesday in Vienna, Austria, where the U.N. atomic agency's board of governors was meeting. Nichols' lawyers: FBI withheld documents WASHINGTON (AP) — Terry Nichols' attorneys say more than a dozen FBI documents that raise the possibility of additional accomplices in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing weren't turned over by state prosecutors or the federal government for Nichols' murder trial defense. The documents, which were cited in a recent series of Associated Press stories, include two 1990s teletypes from then-FBI Director Louis Freeh's office citing possible connections between Timothy McVeigh and a gang of white supremacist bank robbers, the lawyers said. The judge in Nichols' trial has said he will dismiss the state murder charges against McVeigh's coconspirator with prejudice — making it very hard for prosecutors to resurrect the case — if the lawyers can prove that documents that could have aided their defense were withheld. Under a Supreme Court ruling, prosecutors and the government are obligated to turn over to defense lawyers all materials that could help clear a defendant, such as evidence that points to other suspects or casts doubt on prosecution witnesses. U.S. forces to intervene in Haiti violence PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — Gerard Latortue, a former U.N. official chosen to lead Haiti out of political turmoil, returned from the United States Wednesday to begin the arduous task of building a government. Loyalists of the former president said they wouldn't accept him. His arrival came as the U.S. military announced an escalation in its mission in the Caribbean nation, promising Marines will move quickly to stop Haitian-against-Haitian violence. "They will intervene to protect life," Gen. James T. Hill, commander of U.S. Southern Command, told reporters at the Pentagon. Since Sunday, Marines have killed at least four Haitians, including a driver who sped toward a checkpoint and a gunman who fired on an anti-Aristide demonstration. House moves to ban lawsuits blaming obesity crisis on the fast food industry WASHINGTON (AP) — The GOP-controlled House on Wednesday voted to ban supersized lawsuits that blame the food industry for people's expanding waistlines and health woes, saying such cases could bankrupt fast-food chains and restaurants. The 276-139 vote is intended to prevent class action lawsuits that contend food companies and their offerings are responsible for Americans' putting on the pounds and lurching toward obesity. House Republicans have in recent year.s approved similar bills barring suits against the gun industry for gun crimes and against businesses for asbestos-related health problems. Not one measure has passed the closely divided Senate. The White House endorsed the bill, which the Senate is not expected to pass this year. Democrats said the industry did not need the federal protection. Kerry meets with Dean; Edwards next WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry on Wednesday called for deeper tax cuts for the middle class than proposed by President Bush and described his After urging labor leaders to support his campaign to oust the president, Kerry met with one-time rival Howard Dean to discuss an endorsement and what role the former Vermont governor might play in his campaign. Kerry was scheduled to meet with another key rival, John Edwards, on Thursday. Teen sniper sentenced to life in prison CHESAPEAKE, Va. (AP) — Lee Boyd Malvo, the young man who teamed up with John Allen Muhammad to terrorize the Washington area in a sniper spree that left 10 people dead, was formally sentenced Wednesday to life in prison without parole. Malvo, 19, was sentenced a day after Muhammad was given the death penalty by a judge in nearby Prince William County. The judge in Muhammad's case could have reduced the sentence to life in prison, but Malvo's judge had no other option than life without parole, which the jury recommended. Malvo did not speak during the 10-minute hearing, following the advice of his lawyers who did not want his words used against him in future prosecutions. Prosecutor Paul Ebert, who led the case against Muhammad and is next in line to try Malvo, said he would wait until the U.S. Supreme Court rules on whether juveniles may be executed. A decision is expected next year. Malvo was 17 when he killed FBI analyst Linda Franklin, 47, outside a Falls Church Home Depot store. Internet providers sue hundreds for spam WASHINGTON (AP) — Setting aside their rivalries to fight unwanted e-mail choking cyberspace, leading Internet companies announced Wednesday they have sued hundreds of people suspected of sending unsolicited junk messages known as spam. The legal actions by Microsoft Corp., America Online Inc., Earthlink Inc. and Yahoo! Inc., represent the first major industry actions under the federal "can spam" legislation that went into effect Jan. 1. The suits, which are aimed at shutting down the spammers, were filed in federal courts in California, Georgia, Virginia and Washington state. Dozens of those named were identified only as "John Doe" defendants accused of e-mailing unwanted pitches for prescription drugs, herbal potions and weight loss plans. Lawyers expressed confidence they can work through the courts, using subpoenas and other investigative tools, to identify and find them. Alan Jackson collects leading eight ACM nominations LOS ANGELES (AP) — Alan Jackson, who received a leading eight Academy of Country Music nominations Wednesday, can justify celebrating as early as he wants because — as the title of his hit song suggests — "It's Five O'clock Somewhere." The ode to leaving work early for the bar, a duet with Jimmy Buffett, was recognized in four categories: single, video, vocal event and song of the year; it was composed by Jim Brown and Donald Rollins. Jackson was also nominated for entertainer of the year, top male vocalist, and best single and songwriting mentions for "Remember When." The duo Brooks & Dunn and Toby Keith had five nominations each, including entertainer of the year. Other nominees in that category besides Jackson were Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney. Baseball warned over steroid policy WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. John McCain gave the major league baseball players' union a brush-back pitch Wednesday, • warning that Congress will step in if the union doesn't toughen its testing for steroids. McCain, the Senate Commerce Committee chairman, challenged union chief Donald Felir to follow the National Football League's drug policy. Fehr declined, saying he couldn't agree to changes in the players' collective bargaining agreement. "Your failure to commit to addressing this issue straight on and immediately will motivate this committee to search for legislative remedies," warned McCain, R-Ariz. ENROLL NOW!
