In Baghdad

Noah talks with Charles Sennott, the Middle East bureau chief for the Boston Globe who is on the ground in Baghdad, Iraq. Sennott talks about his visit to Basra, which was the target of most of last week's airstrikes. They discuss reports that Iraq's armed forces suffered few casualties during the recent bombing raids undertaken by the United States and Great Britain, and what the general mood in Iraq has been.
