And now the latest from the wartime grapevine:
What Is Your Definition of Freedom?
Saddam Hussein's regime may have been marked by the brutal oppression of women, and numerous human rights groups have detailed the travel and work restrictions, rape rooms, and intimidation once endured by women in Iraq.
But Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton said that after visiting post-war Iraq, she's concerned about, "pullbacks in the rights that women were given under Saddam Hussein."
Senator Clinton told the Brookings Institution, "As they stayed out of his way, they had considerable freedom of movement."
Spies Among U.N.?
Last week, we reported on allegations that British intelligence had spied on U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan. Now former U.N. chief weapons inspector Hans Blix says he believed his home and office were bugged by the United States.
Blix says his suspensions stemmed from a troublesome phone connection in his home and questions over how the U.S. came to possess certain photos of Iraqi weapons. But he admits that both occurrences, "might have been something trivial."
Oil On the Fire?
France has witnessed a wave of violent attacks on its Jewish institutions in the past year. And now French movie theaters are refusing to show Mel Gibson's biblical film, "The Passion of the Christ," saying they fear it might insight further violence.
The controversial film has taken in over $100 million in the United States, but critics say Gibson's work promotes anti-Semitism by blaming the Jews for the death of Jesus Christ.
One French film insider says, "There's enough anti-Semitic stuff circulating here already without us throwing oil on the fire."
FOX Justice Files
And from the 'Fox Justice Files.'
Two police officers in Porterdale, Georgia, have been asked to resign after they engaged in a contest to see who could write the most traffic tickets.
Officers Aaron Cox and Frank Jackson issue an unusually high number of tickets in January, for offenses ranging from not reporting an address change to the state, to having a defective equipment on automotive vehicle.
But their contest was not discovered until a local judge overheard Jackson, the apparent winner of the contest, bragging about his victory.
