Host Bob Edwards speaks with Washington Post reporter Mary Beth Sheridan about the Apache Helicopter that was shot down near the city of Karbala, south of Baghdad. The Apache was part of a formation of 30 to 40 attack helicopters that were forced to turn around because of an onslaught of Iraqi fire from the ground.
