Time: 03-04-2012 23:47 User: cdye PubDate: 03-05-2012 Nation &World Zone: MT TODAY IN 1982 I won’t ‘hesitate’ to use force, he says President Barack Obama arrives to speak at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s annual Policy Conference at the Washington Convention Center. AP By Ben Feller Associated Press squeezing Iran. The president seemed intent on quieting a drumbeat for war, saying even the talk of it has driven up the price of oil to the benefit of Iran. “Now is not the time for bluster,” Obama said. “Now is the time to let our increased pressure sink in.” Obama’s speech to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee set a tone for a vital meeting today with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, whose embattled dential contenders who will speak to the same group Tuesday. At the core was his bullish assertion that the United States will never settle for containing a nucleararmed Iran or fail to defend Israel. “I will not hesitate to use force when it is necessary to defend the United States and its interests,” Obama said. But he framed military force as a last resort, not the next option at a time when sanctions are Mideast nation fears it will soon lose a window to strike Iran before it becomes a target of nuclear weapons. More than once, Obama threatened force but made clear his preference was peace through pressure. Netanyahu, standing his ground against what Israel views as a threat to its existence, said he perhaps most appreciated hearing Obama say “Israel must be able to defend itself, by itself, against any threat.” Speaking to reporters in Canada before his arrival in the U.S., Netanyahu made no reference to the sanctions and diplomacy Obama emphasized. Iran insists its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes, and escalating sanctions have not deterred its pursuit. It’s rapidly ramped up production of the higher-grade enriched uranium needed for an atomic bomb. Social issues dominate GOP race ney have devoted tremendous time and resources in recent weeks. Santorum’s performance there could well define his fate — and Romney’s — in the rollercoasterracegoingforward. “This is a game of survival,” Santorum said while campaigning Sunday in Memphis, Tenn. Preparing for the worst, Romney’s campaign began preparing for a possible loss in Ohio, where polls show the former Massachusettsgovernorlockedin a dead heat with Santorum, a former senator from neighboring Pennsylvania. “I don’t think any state is a must-win,” Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom said. “I think the only must-do on a candidate’s checklist is getting1,144 delegates.” But a Santorum victory law student a “slut” and a “prostitute” on his nationally syndicated radio program. The woman testified at a congressional hearing in favor of an Obama administration mandate that employee health plans include contraceptive coverage. While the contraception debate raged on national television, Newt Gingrich predicted a strong performance Tuesday would resurrect his fading candidacy. Romney and Santorum spent Sunday racing across Georgia, Tennessee, Oklahoma and Ohio, four of the ten states to host elections on Super Tuesday, the biggest single voting day of the 2012 cycle. Super Tuesday’s defining contest could be Ohio, where Santorum and Rom- By Steve Peoples Associated Press MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Intensifying debate about conservative social values — and Republican icon Rush Limbaugh — overshadowed the nation’s economic concerns Sunday as the Republican presidential campaign hurtled toward Super Tuesday contests that could reshape the nomination battle and shift the direction of the Grand Old Party.

Santorum has made headlines in recent days by emphasizing the need for two-parent families and fewer pregnancies out of wedlock. Saturday night, Santorum told an Ohio audience that the nation’s inattention to conservative social values is “damning people.” He tried to avoid the Limbaugh controversy on Sunday, however. “That’s not my business,” he said when asked Sunday about Limbaugh’s apology. MONDAY MARCH 5, 2012 www.courier-journal.com/nationworld WIRE DISPATCHES WASHINGTON Federal sentences still vary, study finds Federal judges are still handing out widely disparate sentences for similar crimes, 30 years after Congress tried to create fairer results, but the differences don’t line up with the party of the president who appointed the judges, a study shows. Sentencing information from the past five years, analyzed by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, shows sentences for the same types of crimes vary significantly between judges in the same courthouse. The analysis showed the judges who meted out the harshest average sentences after trials for three of the most common types of crime — drugs, weapons and white-collar charges — were split evenly between the parties. NEW YORK Families oppose plan for 9/11 remains Families of Sept. 11 victims are calling for congressional hearings to establish federal protocols on how to handle human remains after disasters such as terrorist attacks. Family members spoke at a news conference near the Sept. 11 memorial on Sunday, days after Pentagon officials revealed that several victims’ partial remains were incinerated by a military contractor and sent to a landfill. The families said they oppose a plan to place unidentified remains of the New York victims in an underground repository that they say “desecrates” the memory of their loved ones. people and entombing countless others including inside a church where dozens were attending Mass when it buckled under the force of the blast, officials and witnesses said. The shock waves shattered windows in a threemile radius surrounding the barracks storing the munitions, including across the river that separates Brazzaville, the capital of the Republic of Congo, from Kinshasa, the capital of the larger Central African nation of Congo. A morgue in Brazzaville took in 136 bodies Sunday afternoon, as more continued to arrive. A hospital worker reported 70 more deaths. The death toll is expected to rise as rescuers remove debris and discover more bodies. CARACAS, VENEZUELA Chavez says same cancer returned Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez revealed Sunday that a new tumor recently removed from his pelvic region was of the same type of cancer as a baseball-sized growth extracted from that part of his body about eight months ago. In his first TV appearance in nine days, Chavez, 57, said the surgery and follow-up tests showed the tumor was “a recurrence of the initially diagnosed cancer.” Read the latest news online at: courier-journal.com/nationworld BRAZZAVILLE, CONGO 200 killed when arms depot explodes Buildings collapsed in the Congolese capital after an arms depot exploded Sunday, killing at least 206 TENNESSEE Cash Three 969 Cash Four 3120 Wheels For Wishes Benefiting ON THE WEB Past results, more information available at the following Web sites. ® www.kylottery.com www.hoosierlottery.com www.illinoislottery.com www.ohiolottery.com www.tnlottery.gov CJ-0000325415 READERS’ GUIDE MAIN SWITCHBOARD: 502-582-4011 | CUSTOMER SERVICE: 1-800-866-2211 OR customercare@courier-journal.com SUBSCRIPTION RATES INFORMATION Copyright 2012 | The Courier-Journal | Volume 144, No. 118 NEWS DEPARTMENTS Managing Editor Jean M.
