Older Boeing 7-47 jets face a sweeping overhaul of the wiring near the central fuel tanks.
The F-A-A has ordered the nation's airlines to install new equipment to shield certain wiring in the plane's fuel monitoring systems.
The action goes to the very heart of the leading theory first reported by C-B-S News, that an electrical surge may have triggered the fuel tank blast that brought down flight 800.

(Iraqi parliament this morning/people reading newspapers)

The Iraqi parliament today said UN weapons must finish their job within six months. And Iraq is also keeping up the war of words. A leading baghdad newspaper today called U.S. officials "liars".

(Palaces)

VO: The charge was in response to allegations that weapons of mass destruction maybe hidden in palaces used by Saddam Hussein.

(Suffering civilians)

VO: Iraq accused the U.S.is merely trying to divert attention from the suffering that sanctions are causing Iraqi civilians. The U.N. is considering allowing Iraq to sell more oil to buy food for civilians....but the Iraqi government is still debating the issue.

(Inspectors/this morning)

VO: U.N. weapons inspectors back on the job again today won't be taking up Baghdad's offer to enter the palaces to check...not least because it hasn't specifically been extended to them. Iraq has invited representatives of countries involved in the inspection of weapons sites...as well as experts or diplomats from countries in the U.N security council.

(Volunteers)

VO: Meanwhile, hundreds of "volunteers" for a newly formed "Saddam Commando" unit paraded in a Baghdad park today...Iraq's latest gesture of defiance of the U.S. military build-up in the Gulf.
O/C close: But the real war at the moment is one of propaganda... and Saddam's latest offer will win him more support in the Arab world.. because it will be seen not as slight of hand but as a further concession...
