This article explains that the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush chalked up a major foreign-policy victory when the President announced that Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi had agreed to dismantle his secret unconventional-weapons program in exchange for improved relations with the West. Intelligence officials say they expect Libya's cooperation will help them further unravel the shadowy world of illicit-weapons supply lines.
