Special Glasses for Jodi and Joe:
Not Too Rosy We Hope

The Governor and Senator appeared at a rally at Pratt & Whitney in East Hartford to support the company in its competition to build the engines for the Boeing 767, an aerial refueling tanker aircraft. The airplane can also be used as a cargo, passenger, and medical facility aircraft.

Senator Lieberman used the occasion to repeat his call "for the United States to use “limited military action” against Iranian camps suspected of being used to train and equip terrorists who are killing coalition troops in Iraq." He continued:

"Military action should be limited to halting Iranian training of terrorism, not to eliminate possible nuclear sites, though force could also stem Iran's nuclear ambitions, he said."
