NPR's Rob Gifford joins host Bob Edwards to discuss the fight against terrorism in the Philippines. The United States and the Philippines began joint training exercises today to fight Muslim extremists in the south. About 600 U.S. soldiers are to take part in the exercises, which represent the most significant expansion of the U.S. war on terror since action in Afghanistan.
