Austrian FM, IAEA, Respond to Kouchner

After Bernard Kouchner's bellicose remarks on Sunday, the Austrian foreign minister has reacted: "My colleague Kouchner is the only one who can explain what he meant. It is incomprehensible to me why he should have resorted to martial rhetoric at this time." Meanwhile, Mohammed El Baradei of the IAEA said that he "would ask everyone to stay calm until we have completed our verification procedures" in November or December.

Interestingly enough, the NY Times today published a somewhat disparaging story about El Baradei. Déjà vu, anyone?
