Daschle Flap

NPR's David Welna reports Republicans in Congress are assailing Senate minority leader Tom Daschle for saying President Bush "has failed so miserably at diplomacy." Daschle was referring to the president's call to war against Iraq after giving up on a U.N. resolution to authorize military action. Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert says the comment may not give comfort to U.S. enemies, but "comes mighty close." Daschle says he stands by his statement.
