WTO rules against U.S. in cotton case.
U.S. Trade Representative Robert Zoellick told a House Agriculture Committee hearing on farm trade issues on April 28, "We're going to fight for U.S. ag interests, whether it be litigation or negotiation." If the decision is upheld by the WTO in June, "you can be 100 percent sure we're going to appeal this and press this all the way," Zoellick said. Appeal "all the way" to where? Under the WTO system that the Clinton and Bush administrations have embraced, the WTO's "courts" are the last word. The Bush administration also vowed to fight the WTO's recent ruling against steel tariffs, only to cave in to the global bureaucrats shortly thereafter.
