NPR's Mara Liasson reports President Bush said Monday night that Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein and his sons have 48 hours to leave Iraq or face a military strike. The president asked the Iraqi military to surrender to U.S. troops, told the nation that terror attacks are possible and said the United States is acting legitimately to disarm Iraq through an invasion.
