Crapo said. â??The announcement earlier today about the arrest of a student at the University of Idaho in Moscow brings the message home very clearly that terrorist activities can reach into all communities, regardless of size. Tonight television will bring us two very compelling programs-one with President Bush addressing this issue, and the second listening to the leader of Iraq discussing it. As we continue to engage in discussion and debate over a possible action against Iraq, I hope we will do so with civility and respect.â??# # #
