Iraq Policy

NPR's Martha Raddatz looks back on last week's developments in the U.S. policy towards Iraq and explores what this says about our poicy towards Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. From the earlier determination to retaliate against Iraq for its incursions into both northern and southern no-fly zones over that country, to the more hands-off approach of recent days, to the latest commitment to send 3500 troops to Kuwait, we'll explore what these policy decisions say about U.S. credibility abroad.
