Director George Tenet and General Patrick Hughes testified about current and potential national security threats to the U.S. They began by addressing the problems in the Kosovo province of Yugoslavia. Mr. Tenet noted that as spring approaches, the threat of heavier fighting might increase to a point which would require NATO ground forces to impose peace. Senator Warner, however, warned that U.S. ground troops should not be involved in any such effort.
