Bakiyev Speaks Out

Ousted Kyrgyz president Kurmanbek Bakiyev says he did not want to believe Russia was behind the protests that chased him from power. Bakiyev also said he had no plans to step down, but offered to talk to the opposition leaders who have claimed control of Kyrgyzstan after Central Asia's bloodiest unrest in five years. He adds he believes there was some foreign influence in the coup.

Officials have been wondering whether North Korea had launched an attack. So what are the chances it was an accident? South Korea says another of it's ships which was nearby at the time of the incident, opened fire northward toward an "unidentified object," believing it was an enemy vessel fleeing after an attack, but the object caught on radar was probably a flock of birds.

EADS Getting in the Game

European aerospace giant EADS is nearing a decision to compete directly with Boeing for a contract to build billions of dollars of aerial tankers for the U.S. Air Force. Reuters news service says all indicators seem to suggest that EADS will follow through with a bid, now that it has been granted prime contractor status by the Pentagon and may get a 90-day extension that would give it time to examine classified documents critical to a tender.
