Sudan Plant

Host Renee Montagne talks to Washington Post reporter, Vernon Loeb, about the Saudi owner of the pharmaceutical plant, which the United States bombed in Sudan a year ago, on the grounds that it was producing nerve gas. They discuss Salah Idris, who has hired a high-priced team of lawyers and a chemist to prove that the plant was not making nerve gas. His lawyers are trying to force the U.S. government to pay to rebuild the plant.
