British Prime Minister Tony Blair spends seven hours in Washington Thursday before embarking on a seven-day tour of the Far East. Blair addressed a joint meeting of Congress and answered reporters' questions with President Bush. NPR White House Correspondent Don Gonyea reports that both leaders responded to critics by defending their decision to go to war in Iraq.
