what the man's want informed see. and after a caution he went to the pits and problems with the lug nuts. >> guys, shake it off. you are the best pit crew down there. that's just a mistake. it is a rare mistake and don't sweat it. we have another one. >> edwards, what a team player. shock it off. and dropping back to eighth place. and lap 164 and kyle and logano battling for the lead and able to push ahead and stay ahead. and the final lap, and busch takes the checkered flag and wins the fifth time this year in the nationwide series. busch's win makes a string of 23 different winners in 23 nationwide races at the oval track at new hampshire. no other drivers won more than two races thus far. busch also has got 10 top five finishes this season, which is tied to carl edwards for the most. busch has finished first or second in each of the last four races.

(laughing) persons who are working with, they are coming down and the next problem is what it they cheat? and, you know a lot of our people thought that some of the people with chique like this. and what gragan decided was he needed to have star wars, and that is one of the main reasons why he had star wars. what he wanted to do was he
could make the so powerful and so strong so that nobody could try and come in to the united states, and what he said all along, and by the way that is exactly what obama is saying now. he is not saying let's get rid of all nuclear weapons. nobody wants to do that but what they want to do is get you to reduce the number of weapons you have so you are not going to kill us all but "you were doing it be very careful. the further done you all go it is going to get very tricky and delicate, so that is what is going to happen in your absolutely right. do we have time to ask one more? can we talk about the book? this is an interesting thing we ran across well we are going to the classified documents. and, iran across some letters that the pope had sent to reagan, and reagan had sent back to the pope, and i asked
archivist about that. i would like to get some of those but you can't get them because the vatican has got them locked up and maybe some of them can tell us what happened. i believe it was, if they died, then you have to wait for 50 years before you can see them, which is higher than the cia's, but we'll we'll going through these documents we did find something and we will show you what was going on. and, reagan and the pope were very tight. they got together and on december 15th-- maybe annelise, you worked on that one. >> on december 15th, cardinal, 1981, cardinal casson braly who was the secretary of state to the vatican came over and met with ronald reagan and they met in the map room, what was the
secret meeting and they also the envoy from the vatican ii the united states, and they talked about poland where marshall law had just been declared, but they also talked about nuclear weapons. and, about nuclear strategy. and, the cardinal makes the statement that the united states is the sanctuary for the world. and, he is expressing the view that the united states can do certain things that the vatican cannot possibly do, because of the united states position in the world and so come and reagan says, i hope i am able to fulfill your trust in me. and so, there was a close relationship. the pope of course, pope john
paul ii, was really terrific. reagan had written a couple of radio commentaries when the pope had gone to poland in 1979, so reagan was already familiar with some of his views and the fact that the pope was not only anti-nazi but also anti-communist, so reagan and the pope shared an anti-totalitarian view of the world and a view that a freedom to worship and to choose one's line of work and to travel and to have dignity, especially religious freedom in the case of the pope of course but also for reagan were very important and they shared that. and they also come at the pope i think came to certainly understand reagan's view of what he had to do in order to bring the soviets to the bargaining table, and ultimately achieve a reduction in the threats of
nuclear war. brayden said the pope a letter in january, following the meeting in december, that express the view that he had already taken steps to and feuded as the first step in eliminating the threat of nuclear war and reducing nuclear weapons, that he had already proposed zero for the soviets and zero for the united states on intermediate-range forces in europe. and, what else? >> just one towards the end of this book, what he had said toward the end. he said that, he and the pope together were responsible for whether or not we would all die. it was that simple.
and they worked, and it worked very hard. by the way i have often thought that if you take the size of the united states and the size of the vatican, that is pretty good together. [laughter] >> any other questions? >> they are free. >> dr. sanders and please accept our thanks for coming here this afternoon and you certainly deserve a round of applause.
