Cohen in the Middle East

Host Bob Edwards talks with NPR's Eric Weiner about Secretary of Defense William Cohen's tour of the Middle East. Cohen is visiting the Persian Gulf sheikdoms and other key Middle East nations to drum up support for US policy on Iraq. Yesterday, Cohen told Saudi Arabia that the US would sell advanced air-to-air missiles to improve Saudi security in the Gulf. Today Cohen meets with leaders of the United Arab Emirates in Dubai.
