Mending U.S.-German Relations

NPR's Bob Edwards talks with Germany's Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer about diplomatic relations between Germany and the United States. Those relations have soured since Germany, along with France, strongly opposed the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq. Fischer admits the two countries have had their differences, but still insists an alliance between the United States and Europe is essential to winning the war on terror.
