Two freshmen U.S. representatives have been checking in throughout their first session. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) and Peter Roskam (R-IL) have both traveled to Iraq recently. Roskam just returned from his first trip there, and Giffords made the journey several months ago.

They talk with Michele Norris about their trips and the effects on their thinking on the Iraq war.
