Fulfill AIDS pledge (editorial)
Miami HeraldPresident Bush and Congress are walking away from a highly praised pledge of $15 billion over five years to fight AIDS in Africa. The president's retreat puts a dent in U.S. credibility. Worse, it will devastate already strained efforts to stem the full gallop of AIDS across the African continent. That's a travesty in more ways than one. For the scourge that is destroying a generation in Africa knows no political or geographical boundaries, and its terrible consequences will be felt in every country in the developed world over time.
