President Bush renewed the PLO’s right to maintain its Washington office. Like other presidents before him, Bush last week exercised his right to waive for six months a provision that bans groups linked to terrorism from operating in the U.S. capital. Republicans and Democrats in Congress in recent years have called on Bush to reconsider the waiver because of increasing terrorism by PLO-affiliated groups like the Al-Aksa Brigade.
