Transcript TWENTY-SIX Jack Kevorkian, the physician who assisted in suicides for the terminally ill, was convicted of second-degree murder and delivery of a controlled substance. After deliberating for more than 12 hours, the jury rejected Kevorkian's arguments that his intent was not to murder Thomas Youk, 52, who suffered from Lou Gehrig's disease, a fatal illness. He said he acted to ease the suffereing of Youk, who was confined to a wheelchair and had difficulty breathing and eating. The 70-year-old retired pathologist, also known as Dr. Death, served as his own lawyer during the trial. He could face up to life in prison. Kevorkian's defense was hurt when the judge ruled that he could not call as witnesses Youk's widow and brother. He rested his defense without calling a single witness, and elected not to testify. 1 4 8 �� WORLD NEWS After almost a year of trying to stay out of the public spotlight, Monica Lewinsky, the White House intern who almost took down President Clinton, spoke publicly in an interview with Barbara Walters for the first time. Lewinsky was not under oath during the interview broadcast on ABC's 20/20, which kicked off a series of television and magazine interviews for her. ABC said it did not pay for its sessions with Lewinsky. ABC expected to draw such a large audience that it charged more than four times the normal rate for advertisements. The broadcast was timed to coincide with the release of Lewinsky's biography, Monica's Story, written by British author Andrew Morton, who also wrote the biography of Princess Diana. Lewinsky told Walters, "I felt like a piece of trash. I felt dirty and I felt used and I was disappointed." When asked if she thought Clinton felt remorse, she said, "When I think of the person that I now see is 100 percent politician, I think he's sorry he got caught." White House officials said Clinton did not watch the interview and no one taped it for him to see later. ^■^al aW^ Many Americans had never heard of Kosovo before President Bill Clinton bombed the province, much less understood why we were waging war. Fighting began when the largely ethnic Albananian province sought independence from Serbia, one of two republics that make up The Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. The other republic is Montenegro. Serbian Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic tried to ethnically cleanse the Albanians out of Kosovo. In a television statement, Clinton urged Americans to take out a map and find the European province. He also laid out three chief goals for the air war against Yugoslavia: to demonstrate NATO's resolve to act against aggression, to punish Milosevic for his attacks in Kosovo and to weaken his army's ability to fight Albanian insurgents and kill civilians. Clinton urged the importance of stopping Milosevic before the fighting engulfed neighboring countries, such as Mecedonia, which has a large Albanian minority, Greece and even Turkey.
