Major Gen. David Petraeus, commander of the Army's 101st Airborne Division occupying Mosul, clarifies the cloudy circumstances surrounding the deaths of two soldiers this week in the northern Iraqi city. Mosul had been seen as a model of occupation and reconstruction, but violence in the area has put the city's peaceful image in question. NPR's Robert Siegel talks with Petraeus.
