Host Bob Edwards details the arrival of U.S. troops in West Africa today on a mission to protect 100 American children at a school in the Ivory Coast city of Bouake. About 200 soldiers arrived in the neighboring country of Ghana before daybreak. They may be deployed to protect staffers and students at the school, who are trapped as government troops and rebel forces battle for control of the Ivory Coast city.
