Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld testifies before Congress Friday about the abuse of Iraqi prisoners in U.S. custody, one day after the U.S. House passed a resolution condemning the incidents. Rumsfeld's failure to inform Congress of the abuse before it was reported in the media has angered many lawmakers. Democrats intensify calls for him to resign. Hear NPR's Andrea Seabrook.
