As part of a media campaign in war-torn Iraq, President Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair address the Iraqi people in pre-taped messages transmitted from a U.S. Air Force plane and broadcast on Iraqi TV. President Bush pledges that U.S.-led forces will not retreat until "Saddam's corrupt gang is gone" and that the future of Iraq will soon belong to its citizens. Hear NPR's Don Gonyea.
