NPR's Christopher Joyce reports on the investigation of mass gravesites in Iraq. Human Rights Watch investigator Peter Bouckaert is trying to gather evidence to be used in future war crimes trials. Bouckaert found a farmer who witnessed Baath party members truck Iraqis to a remote site, gun them down, and bury them en masse.
