Rice Will Testify Under Oath

The White House, bowing to mounting pressure from both Republicans and Democrats, agrees to allow National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice to testify — in public, and under oath — before a bipartisan commission investigating the Sept. 11 terror attacks. The decision follows former anti-terror coordinator Richard Clarke's statements criticizing the Bush administration. NPR's Pam Fessler reports.
