What is Iraq's fighting capability? U.S. experts say a handful of Scud missiles survive, and that Iraq could strike at neighbors or U.S. forces with armed, unmanned planes. And there are fears of a horrific scenario with Western hostages. NPR's Steve Inskeep talks with Michael O'Hanlon of the Brookings Institution and Michael Eisenstadt of the Washington Institute on Near East Policy.
