Journalists Skeptical of Central Command Briefings

NPR's Neal Conan speaks with NPR's Steve Inskeep in Doha, Qatar, home of the U.S. Central Command. At a regular military briefing, journalists hammer Brig. Gen. Vincent Brooks for the lack of a "big picture" view of the war, and question the U.S. military's accountability for civilian casualties. Brooks defended the briefings as a "platform for truth."
