State, Pentagon officials lead charge for Law of the Sea ratification

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and top military officials called again yesterday on the Senate to ratify a long-standing -- and much-debated -- treaty governing the world's oceans. Clinton, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said approving the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea would protect U.S. national security and aid the struggling economy by encouraging new offshore oil, gas and mineral development.
