Report: Bush Wants U.S. Army in Yesha

The Bush administration is promoting a plan to deploy 20,000 American soldiers in Gaza and then in Judea and Samaria, according to the Jordanian newspaper ad-Dostour. The U.S. has not commented on the report.

The newspaper said the plan dates back to the siege several years ago on the Ramallah offices of former Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Yasser Arafat. Ad-Dostour said that the American soldiers would be deployed through the force of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
