NPR's Robert Siegel talks with Adolfo Aguilar Zinser, formerly Mexico's ambassador to the United Nations. Mr. Zinser was forced out by the Mexican government after he said that some in the United States regard Mexico as being their "backyard." The statement was declared "outrageous" by U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell and Mr. Zinser was told by Mexico's President Fox to retract it or resign.
